Hello, I’m Gill Mogg (Moggy). Director of Bridgwater Chapter
Welcome to our web site. I'm really proud to be a member of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.). We're people from all walks of life who love their Harley Davidsons.
Bridgwater Chapter was formed in 1989 (the oldest continous Chapter in Europe) and with nearly 400 members, we're still growing. Whether you like riding alone, with a few friends or a group, dancing til dawn or riding all day, we have something for you. I am really proud to be the Director of Bridgwater Chapter. I joined in 1998 and since then I have experienced some of the best times of my life with wonderful experiences and marvellous friends. We’ve recently expanded this site with some extra exciting features including new sections such 'Our Bikes', 'Adventures', 'Ladies of Harley' and ‘Merchandise’ The new pages will grow as time goes on, so the site will keep changing.
If you're not a member, I hope you have a look through this site and then join us. Click here for my page
Happy Viewing - Moggy xx

CIDER RALLY 2015
So boys and girls the time is nearly upon us, Its CIDER RALLY time, whhhhhhhhhooooooooo. We are just so
pleased that the Cider Rally lives on for 2015 and hopefully for many more years to come. Last year was
horrible for us and were absolutely gutted of even the thought that after 23 years there would not be a
Rally but thankfully all was ok and Pontin's took over. So from the bottom of our hearts we would like to
thank each and every one of you for sticking by us and supporting the event, if it wasn't for you guys and
gals we wouldn't even have a Rally, so thanks again, and hope you support us again.
As you know Sand bay have been making improvements building more chalets so hopefully we will be able
to get a lot more folk on site, also updating the original Chalets, not sure when this is but hopefully some
would have been done before May. A lot of us are going down to a 60's weekend end of Oct so we can have
a nose at what's been done.
So if you are a Bridgwater member your booking form will be in with your Sept what's on, as no mag this
month, then for all you other lovely folk there will be a booking form on the front page of the site from
28th September, so as soon as you get your form or see it on the site get it off ASAP so you can ensure you
are on site, think most of you know by now that to be on site you must be a current HOG member, this does
not apply to camping or off site.
So let’s continue to party Bridgwater style for many years to come. Thank you again
See ya there
Luv to you all
Moggy and the Bridgwater Crew
See You All There!!!
September "What's on"
As you all are aware there is no Magazine this month, the What’s on is normally just e-mailed to everyone
but because the Cider Rally form is due we are also going to post to ensure everyone gets the form,
Bridgwater gets priority in Sept so if you want to be on site then get your form off ASAP, Lorraine will then
send you a ref number then you have to ring Sand Bay give your ref number and pay your deposit, if you
have any queries give us a shout.
