Right guys. This year is going to be AMAZING! I have decided. But for that to happen, I need YOU on board! Yes, I am talking to you. Whoever is reading this, I am speaking directly to you!
We have got loads of meets and events planned for this year. Setting up the club and getting to where we are has been a HUGE success, not only for me, but for the Elgrand community as a whole. But now what we need to do is actually meet up, get to know one another and bring Elgrand owners from across the country together.
To do that, we are going to attend as many meets and shows as humanly possible. We all have busy lives, most of us have families (large ones at that), and everyone is short of cash now and then. I appreciate that. These meets and events are being planned WELL in advance to give you all the time to prepare and save up.
I know that most of you haven’t the slightest interest in going to car meets or shows, but believe me, once you’ve cracked that shell and attended one, you will see just how much fun they can be, and you’ll be hooked. Meets and shows are not just about the cars, they are about the people too. Spending 4 days in a field at JAE will help to bring our members closer together on a personal level, and the better you know each other, the more likely you are to interact. Meeting people in Whitby for fish and chips is a great excuse for a day out with the family, and a chance to integrate with other owners, swap ideas, see what other people have done and improve your own knowledge about your car. Shows have retailers, who offer special discounts on the day, so if you need parts, or are looking into a new mod, these shows are a great chance to speak to the people who can make that a reality.
So, show me what you are made of. Join the forum and get your name down on a list for a meet or a show. Even if it’s just ONE this year, TRY to make it happen. The club will benefit from YOUR attendance, and you will benefit from ours. It’s win win! If there is nothing happening locally to you, make it happen. Put the feelers out. The first one might only be 2 people, but then it’ll be 3, then it’ll be 5 or 6… and they grow. The more you go, the more will come, and eventually local meets become a chance to meet with friends, not just other owners.
So, can you rise to the challenge and make it to at least ONE club meet this year?
