Ride Out & Barbecue on Sunday 23rd July. Meet at 10.00 am at the Armoy Club Office (Main Street, Armoy) to ‘sign on’ and leaving at 10.30 am sharp. The run this year will head into Ballymoney, Bendoragh onto Limavady, Benone, Downhill in to Coleraine before heading out to the Ports, Bushmills and back down the coast to Ballycastle where I’m sure we’ll fit in the stopping off at Morelli’s for the customary ice-cream, then homewards to Armoy for a BBQ which will be held in Armoy beside the River Bush. Cost is £10.00 per person. Contact Joe O’Kane (077 3287 9536) for further information.
Classic Car Display – Wednesday 26th July. Ballymoney Old Vehicle Club will be visiting Armoy gathering from 6.00 pm. This year the cars will again be on display in the Station Road Carpark that is in the centre of the Armoy Village. All types of classic, rare & collectable cars are expected in the village where a huge number of enthusiasts turn out to admire the scene and enjoy the craic. A lovely spectacle to see the classics doing a few laps of the Armoy circuit as the night draws to an end.
