Present YOUR travel adventure!
From Brian Coles, who presented at the HU UK 2005 meeting:
"... Since attending the 2003 meeting a month before I set out to 'do the Americas,' I feel that I have now come full circle by presenting a slide show of my trip at Derby. It was an incredible feeling to have achieved my first public presentation. The thanks I received afterwards made it extra special. The HU meetings are unique in size and atmosphere. Everyone is friendly and more than willing to help, whatever the question. I felt that when I started the trip in 2003, and I felt that this weekend when I then presented it. I can recommend presenting your 'trip of a lifetime' to anyone that has been out there and done it. Thanks to you, Susan, and all the organisers, Brian"
Present YOUR Tech Clinic - good at something of interest to motorcycle Travellers? Please do a Tech Clinic for us!
Please Volunteer to help out! Odd jobs, registration, gate, etc. We can use your help, and only a couple of hours makes a big difference to make it a better event for everyone!

What's a Mini-Meeting?
Small "local" HU Community meetings, often held in someone's backyard/garden/field for a barbie, or in a restaurant or local watering hole. Often held to welcome a traveller passing through, or just as an excuse to get together and keep the travel fires burning. Join, and contact your local Community to get a discussion started on where and when, then let me know and I'll post it here! OR just post it on the HUBB in the HU Events Forum.

"A superb event that was really well organised. I found the atmosphere amongst the attendees to be very positive too."

"Great atmosphere and camaraderie, especially at dinner time, and interesting presentations."
"Folks were all great and the most amazing thing was there was NO ATTITUDE."
