There are forum members older and me and members who attended meetings before me, but having attended my first meeting 62 years ago I must be in a pretty exclusive club. Who among us attended their first meeting before Easter 1960 and where?

How many times are we going to do this one? I have a massive feeling of "We've been here before many times"?

In fact the subject beneath this one says it all!

You can please all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time. (Something like that anyway).

I'm thinking Bob Dylan credited Abraham Lincoln with that! 

Also consider.....

If at first you don't succeed... give up. (Homer Simpson) or

If at first you don't succeed... repeat posting it (Johnny Gustix)

Also to repeat... for me its:  Belle Vue v Oxford 1963... Oh What A Night :rolleyes:

I may hold the forum record for the YOUNGEST speedway fan; I was three weeks old when I first went to Plough Lane in August 1962...

But the first one I remember was 1960 aged 12.
