Transporter Talk October 2010
Again week on week month on month our figures are rising more and more are joining us yet still few really contibute which remains both a mystery and a worry ? we can see no more really that we can do to aid this, make it more inviting or indeed help/make people contribute, we are of course very well aware others provide similar communities to our own not without their respective issues i have to add, so far none of which we have noticed or indeed suffered even on teh whole remaining a family friendly sociable community for all ages and all models of both T4 and T5 which we will continue to do whether for one or one hundred big numbers of members do not mean a big community, all it means is that either they have been here longer or had more money to advertise we offer the exact same if not more and will carry on regardless, hopefully growing still further by supplying the information toatlly free the way it was supposed to be.....
After seeing off our fourth meet and our second at Griezdale in the lakes this past weekend where all who attended had a great old time it was nice to see Stan finally at one of our meets his knowledge and wisdom was definately welcomed without a shadow of a doubt and will continue to be im sure in the coming months i beleive Charlie our Social Convenor may be attempting to organise maybe one last meet this season details will be available in our events section if it is possibe ..... Nothing is definate as yet but we hope it will come through acting as the finale to a interesting year and encouragement for all to back us through the winter months ahead of what we hope will be a busy season finding us at many of the big shows up and down the country in 2011.
The Admins managed to have a good old talk at Griezdale and part decided a format to run to at these meets which has still to be finalised but it is hoped will encapsulate all who attend and provide interest, and fun for all attendees [Anyone who has experience of operating such meets/shows or events i would dearly love to pick your brains feel free to let me know your presence by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org]
