Good thinking and hats off to you for taking the initiative
I agree there is a lot of cost involved with travel across the region, i regularly clock up 500-1000 miles a month just on club activities, and at 30 mpg it all adds up.
Please don't see that as a moan, i love what i do as the SW rep, getting people together and having a common interest is what it is all about. Over the next few months with the nights drawing in i am trying to sort out a few more 'indoor' meets.
for the Devon Cornwall area Route A38 seems to be an ideal place, geared towards those of a 'mechanical' persuasion and fairly central, and already we have one meet planned there for September.
My only concern with having a number of 'outlets' for event news is ensuring that it is all up to date, if anything changes then the problems it could create with upset members could do more harm than good.
Is it possible to put some sort of 'disclaimer' on the site reminding people to check the AOSW site before leaving for an event?
