FAST FIVE: Guest Appearances

This week for Fast Five I'll spend 5 minutes talking about some visitors we've had.

I don't often speak about the stuff that goes on in my life relating to the Motorcycle Club that I am the President of, but recently we've had some cool people visit us at the clubhouse so I thought I'd share some of the photos etc with you guys 'n' gals.

Some of you may remember that when we were at the Pagan Picnic we bumped in to the guys from the band Slim Pickings

Here's a couple of videos of them in action:




It's funny because we came across the band online a few weeks before that, we all LOVE their music and noticed that they were local to us, and at the time I told the lads I'd get them to come down the clubhouse (having no idea how I was going to actually fulfil this promise since I'd never met them).

But it was obviously meant to happen, when we bumped in to them at the Picnic I invited them to swing by our clubhouse for a party and we ended up arranging for them to do just that, here's  a few shots of us in full flow at the party last Saturday:





Drinking some mighty fine Dalwhinnie 15yr old whisky


We all had an absolute blast with the guys from Slim Pickings, you couldn't hope to meet nicer people.

As if that wasn't enough, we also had another outstanding guest do us the honour of visiting this week!

Only the World Champion! Kaye Crisp...The Baby Faced Assassin... at just 16 years old she is already Celtic, Southern, British, European and World Thai Boxing champion!


Kaye's father was a friend of a friend so I extended an invitation to them both to come and celebrate her recent victory at the clubhouse with us and we all ended up having a fantastic night, they are so down to earth and just fantastic people...



...Although Kaye is very fussy about her tea so was forced to whip our resident tea boy in to shape! 


And before she left she signed the bar:



And a quick look at Kaye in action at a training session:


Kaye will be fighting in her hometown of Southend on the 16th of July to try her hand at boxing with the boys, some of the guys from the club are hoping to go to show her some support



Hope you all have an amazing weekend

  1. looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I am pea green with envy of the Slim Pickings' dreadlocks, I've always wanted them but have never been brave enough to go for it, though I doubt they'd look as great on me lol

  4. I like your Confederate Flag.

    Here the "Pagans" are a very well known motorcycle gang like the Banditos or the Hell's Angels. Clearly a different crew than over there.

    1. yeah we have a couple of confederate flags on the walls in the clubhouse. The Hells Angels are the dominant club for our area and we associate with them regularly.
