On the day we were very lucky with the weather as this is the middle of the rainy season here in Thailand. To top that there are tropical storms all around this area at this time. However on the day it was bright sunny and warm but thankfully not as hot as it has been of late.
Lunch was served at Pattaya Ducati starting at 12:00 noon with favourite Thai specialities for the riders that arrived early enough. Then at 1:50 a little earlier than on other occasions the ride set off. This years route was a quick dash up the 36 highway to the first traffic light and then right down into BanChang. Near the end there is a nice twisty part unfortunately the corners had to be a bit subdued due to sand on the road after the recent rain. This year Fr, Tao our the director of our center rode with us but having stopped to take photos of riders joining route 36, he found it difficult to catch up with the leaders again.
We were soon at the center being entertain by the talents of our senior band who’s lead singer is our very talented Miss NamWan. There were also many dances performed by our young ladies.
On the day there were many donation of cash, Nick Pascoe gave 28,100THB, Easter Thai gave 21,287THB, Denis Norman Able gave 5,000THB and a whip-round of the riders produced 4,000THB. Paul Pearmain from Tyga Performance has sent us 11,000THB by bank transfer @ http://tyga-performance.com/th/ and facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/tygaperformance All this plus many useful items donated by Pattaya Ducati. https://www.facebook.com/Ducatipattaya on Facebook or on there website @ http://ducati.com/dealers/thailand/banglamung/pattaya/ducati_pattaya/index.do
Near the end of the afternoon many of our children very much enjoyed a thrilling blast up the quite road along side the center on the many supper bikes that were here on the day.
From all of us here at The Camillian Social Center Rayong, Thank You So Much to Pattaya Ducati and all the riders that took part on the day. We all hope to see you again next year.
|We All Hope To See You Again Next Year.|
