IN MEMORIAM – ROLAND McLELLAN

It is with great regret that we must report the death of Roland McLellan after a short stay in hospital. Roland was C-CAM secretary since 2014 and was an enthusiastic supporter of the group.

Roland worked in the satellite industry and maintained a keen interest in all things related to engineering. Roland came late to motorcycling but, as with all things, embraced it with gusto. He took his advanced test with the group but then continued his quest for riding improvement by taking part in group rides, trips (home and abroad), IAM skills days and track days.

Roland’s riding had been limited in the last couple of years following treatment for cancer. He remained typically upbeat and continued his activities on the C-CAM committee. His quiet dry wit, common sense approach and thoughtful consideration will be sorely missed. He was a true friend to both members and the group as a whole; we all regret the passing of a true gentleman.

New Local Observer For CCAM

Congratulations go to CCAM member, Tim Cannock, who has just recently qualified as a Local Observer (LO). Tim joined CCAM in early 2018, passed his Advanced Motorcycle Test in Summer 2018. This year, under the guidance of Local Observer Assessor (LOA) Andy Woodward, Tim has now achieved LO status; and this was all exactly one year from Tim's very first observed ride as an Associate. Tim is a great advocate of safe riding, club events and enjoys motorcycle touring and trail riding; he will make a fine addition to CCAM's team of volunteer Observers.

In the past 2 months CCAM has had two of its Local Observers refresh their Advanced Test qualification and both have passed with a "F1rst". That just shows the high standard of Observer that we have at CCAM.Congratulations to both Joe Logan and Alex May. The committee wishes to extend its gratitude and appreciation for the time and effort contributed by all our CCAM Observers.
