A message from Paul(R)

I joined AO about three years ago. It took a little time to settle in - after all being a newbie it can be daunting posting into what might be seen as a "settled" club.

I was made to feel welcome - indeed I soon realised that the people here are more than just a bunch of car obsessed nerds.

After a year or so I thought that I'd like to give something back. At that time the Regional meets were starting up so I volunteered to become a rep. I like to think that I was in at the begining and that I did OK (k).

My view has always been that we are an evolving club - I did my bit but the time comes to hand over to someone with new ideas. Katy came on board a few months ago, since which time our region has expanded. Together Katy and I made a great team and, as family stuff (all good), will be taking up more of my time it is now that I can bow out and hand over to her.

I have resigned as a rep.


Thank you everyone for the support you have given me over the last 18 months - I am sure that you will continue to give the same to Katy.

Before you all cheer - I WILL be attending our future meets - so watch it.

Thanks again.

Paul.

You are, of course, right. I agree she is a totally competant person - the "being a woman" bit doesn't seem to phase her.

Paul

(I am, obviously, entirely serious).

Re: A message from Paul(R)

Paul,

We're also sorry to hear that you're standing down. However you can be proud of what you've done over the last couple of years in developing the EA group. The turn out at last week's get together and the (mostly!) healthy and increasing activity on this section's website are proof of the good work you've done. I'm sure that we'll continue to blossom in Katy's capable hands and look forward to seeing you at future meets.

Thank you for all you've done in getting the EA section going and all best wishes to you and your family for Christmas and for 2009.

SEG and SWG

I haven't been an Ao'er for very long Paul, but was good to be welcomed at your well organised meets. So thanks for that and see you at the next ones - if not around Felixstowe.

I invited Mario from Avanti to the Sunday meet a few weeks back and sent him an email reminder recently. Not sure if he's coming or not but if he does you can pester him for your quote then. Always had good dealings with them KT and always seem busy too.
