EX CHANCELLOR KEN'S GUIDE TO "SHINER SPEAK"
Since retiring as chancellor of this club, I've been
relaxing in my special velour armchair kindly installed for my
use by the landlord of the Port 'N' Ale pub, I've often overheard

Now this has got me thinking, (oh lordy, lordy ). Say you are on a rally standing next to some of our lot in a marquee or in a camping field wondering what the hell we are on about, you need worry no more. I have devised the SHINER SPEAK list to assist you.
So could I suggest you print of some copies of this list, hand them to your buddies, and when out & about on rallies, camping weekends etc. this list can be referred to as and when needed.
