Marvellous… a few deeply felt words to express your treatment of ‘toilet man’. There’s enough brown, dribbly stuff oozing out of Bowser’s mouth without the toilets adding to the surplus! Lavatorial facilities aside though, another good rally was had by all. Danke, muchos! 1st September 07 Sacha & Chris We were kindly invited to join you guys this year for Daves 60th, so it was a first for us at OGRI and def won’t be our last! Am 7 months pregnant and was really looked after, its a shame that other festies can’t take a leaf out of your book and just have decent folk like yourselves!! Cheers guys & keep safe x 31st August 07 Dave & KD British Legion Riders Branch Thanks for inviting us ( RBLR )… top event, well organised, and all members met were a credit to Ogri MCC.

Alan + Colleen 29th August 07 melon Hi guys, great rally as usual but was not keen on the food – mostly overpriced and under (in case of chips) or over (eg burgers!) cooked. Have done a couple of festivals this year as well as rallies and they put rally food to shame -especially in the veggie dept. Had a great weekend tho- see you next year! melon 29th August 07 Webby Barrel Bikers MCC Great rally as always. Thoroughly enjoyed the silly games , bands and stalls. Catering was far better this year. I am vegetarian and there wasnt much for me last year but loads this year. Veggie burritos and full veggie breakfasts were especially appreciated. Thanks to all who made it happen. Webby XXX 28th August 07 Tarka Hi to all the Ogri MCC Just to publicly thank you for showing the true biker spirit by coming to our assistance on the Friday night and hauling my defunct Ural combo in on a trailer!! You enabled us to enjoy yet another fab Ogri Rally,as well as put a smile back on Megan’s face as she was in tears at the thought of going straight back home on a recovery truck!! Big thanks to you all from Tarka,Lorraine and Megan. 28th August 07 Sue Dimitriou Great rally 2007 Food not as good as past years. Toilets were grim, not enough of them [with a larger crowd] and they weren’t cleaned regularly on Sunday morning they were full to the point of overflowing. 28th August 07 jake from pinkertons done 2007,blinding good time, only one draw back real ale bar running out early sat night!! nightmare!!!… and another tiolet block, other than that a cracking good do! 27th August 07 Peter Forth Valley MCC Just back from the 2007 Ogri. 8 hours riding and one of our club members broke down in Englandshire and is still in transit with his bike on the back of a truck. Just a quick note to say nothing, but nothing could dampen the memories of the Ogri. The single best rally in the UK. Many thanks to the Ogri MCC for hosting such a fantastic doo. Will be back again to party Ogri style. See ya all on the road or in a field soon. Pete, Chairman FVMCC 27th August 07 debbie Thankyou for a fantastic weekend at your rally. We had a brilliant time. The club members made everyone feel like guests and made us all feel very welcome. So much so we are hoping for enough tickets to make it a club visit next year. We even took advantage of the trip in the plane with Dom who was lovely. Unfortunately there was one draw back, the toilets but I am sure you are already on the case. Looking forward to another visit next year (with a few more toilets LOL) 27th August 07 james ow what a weekend at the ogri!!!! i went to the ogri rally this weekend with the antelopes and i was a rally virgin-i got terrorised alot and had such a good weekend and will be goin next year without a doubt!!!! 27th August 07 Mally Great rally and well done on orgainze the great weather.

Savages MC 1st August 07 Bowser this one Well I remember the fools rally, it was crap, I met babs there and been married (in purgatory) ever since, that bloody Gloustershire beer has somthing to anwser for. Oh and if the Mark that left the comment is Mark Trotman then my wife Babs wants you to drop us an e mail please. 24th June 07 Karen Mark… I remember ‘The fools’ very well (I still have the badge I think) Apart from the obvious, it was a good rally. From what I remember, there was a big tent, a muddy field that we got the bikes bogged down in and a telegraph pole that we dragged from another filed to fuel the fire… sighs Gone are the days when that was all you needed, now if there’s no place to get chnaged, have a shower and put your make-up on,(and that’s just the men), then it’s just not acceptable…grins 10th July 07 Jock thetartanandgreen Hi thx for having Me and sean shana for the last 2 years playing the pipes at the rallie had a great time and bad head in the mornin lol hope to repeat it this year again haha and glad to be asked back this year will pop up and uc u all befor then all the best for this year cheers Jock 30th June 07 Mark Hi, Just come across the website and it brought back a few memories of Ogri MCC from Herford. Going back to the late 70′s we held one of our rallies (Fools rally?) and had a number of Ogri members there. We had a great weekend will all the lads and lasses until a couple of your lads wrapped their 250LC Yam around a lampost and ended up in Gloucester Royal for many weeks. I repaired the Yam while its owner thankfully recovered OK. 24th June 07 Karen Funny y’know, I thought Ogri Mcc was now 29years old. Have we forgotten 1977, the first year in Herford?
