Transporter Talk May 2010
Generally month on month now we are building in both content and membership, this month sees the appointment of Rob our new club Secretary who i am sure all would agree will do us all proud in the coming months as he starts to make changes and helps me with a total reshuffle to make us more accessible and streamlined things are looking up now also on the logo front with plans a foot to get some made up for placing on our vans to let the world know we exist as we all go to every corner of the country to one or other show........
Our forum as always has its ups and downs but continues to provide a social area for us to meet in to plan meets and other events where we can if we wish all join in, whilst providing an area to discuss issues with our buses and chew over remedies to common and not so common problems we have to face as owners of our respective Transporters, with your help, assistance and participation we can easily now become the community we always had envisioned for T4 -T5 Club UK all it takes is a few entries per month which quickly builds into a veritable fountain of knowledge helpful and very useful when we need advice and guidance....
Our build guides forum is rather bare!! and needs some input, i reckon at least one other than myself must have a vehicle in build at present? if so why not share that experience with the entire community by adding a build guide to our suitably named section which then acts as a lasting account of your journey whilst also supplying valuable information for future builders at a later date who by virtue of reading your accounts will be able to pick up tips, tricks and remedies to common and not so common issues encountered by building custom, camper or one off vehicles such as these again which will we hope build up into a valuable resource, my own build guide is in its infancy with mine just out of paint last week and now heading for build up of its interior i hope to be able to produce real soon a full from start to finish guid ecovering all aspects of a build lookout for "Joiners Hack 2 Holiday Shack" coming real soon now which will have every step of the way covered in great detail for our avid readers to get stuck into..
Our community side is forging forwards also under Cgas's leadership where events up and down the country are currently being planned as well as group/community meets at other events/shows and gatherings throughout the show season, where we will have our own mini shows at shows we attend which is also a great way to get to know your fellow members whilst we build this community up into a large enough one to stage our own dedicated show sometime in the future....don't foget to take images of any T4's & T5's you see at these shows and send them on to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in our first show report for 2010...

TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE advertising is offered to both trade and our members alike in several areas with only a few basic rules of conduct to follow to obtain it, which is very underused, we would love to see far more use made of this valuable area which after all also brings extra hits to our sister site our Shopping Mall, which in turn brings more visitors which in turn equates to more members a commodity we do still require so come on guys raid the garage, shed or loft and seek out those unwanted Transporter or camping related items and get them posted at the end of the day it will not sell if no one knows about it now will it ?? private members ads can be added straight to the relevant sections Trade ads please send all to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for acceptance first where upon if suitable will be added to the correct sections as soon as time allows, please do not waste your time adding trade ads to our forums as they will quite simply be immediately removed....
