There was a meet in Peterborough recently and I think there is a meet coming up in Wisbech in October, they are up in the Lincolnshire forum bit, though not sure why
For those not familiar with the Peterborough Meets a little explanation follows.
The Meets in Peterborough are organized by Jillyflower and as she often attends our Meets in the Lincs Region she thought little get togethers for the Peterborough area were best put there.
The Wisbech one was sorted out by me, admittedly it's stretching the Lincs area a tad but sort of fits in with my policy of moving Meets around the County to try and ensure that everyone has at least one Meet near to them during the season.
It's tough at the moment for all the Reps, attendance is dropping off. For instance we have a great Meet organized for the Battle of Britain Day at East Kirkby, full day out from Brekkers to Evening drinks with discounted entry with cars actually getting on site, at the close of proceedings you get you car under the Lancaster for a photo shoot, where else can you do that ? Worth a bit of a drive out I feel. In the past we have had 20 plus Cars coming, with just over a week to go we have just five, more Rep 'umble pie to eat unless things pick up.
Similar scenario for our BLS Meet in Oct, last time we had almost 30 cars, this year currently 6. I'm
, free Diag, your car up on the Lift for inspection and a lot of advice from Tom and Phil.
Perhaps a bit more " cross pollination " is required, especially for the more " special " Meets.
It's a bit discouraging and I feel for Phil. Like GD said, flogging dead horses isn't a lot of fun. C'mon folk, support your Reps or risk losing them.
