I very much agree with Carrotsuckers post completely.
East Anglia is far too huge an area for 1 or 2 reps to cover, organise and keep forum members happy.
It is quite natural for a particular rep wanting to organise something within their own stamping ground, and they will never know of events further afield, but within the EA area.
If you are ever going to even start to get something like that off the ground, it needs to split into smaller factions, with of course the facility to join up with other area factions events as and when.
I belong to Bury retro car club. This is a club run by younger very enthusiastic folk (20's/30's) (Yes there are Elders too with Old rover 3 litres, Hillmans etc)who welcome members of other clubs to their events, and My wife and I recently had a great day recently at the clubs "Family fun day". We had competitions between clubs, 3 legged races, spark plug & spoon, Tug of war (with proper regulatory rope), Bar B q....You name it. We had a fantastic time and everybody parked in a huge square. We had our own club members there from Early corvette, (our two Alfas of course),Fords of all sorts, a bouncing Merc, Superb minis (one with a Ford Cosworth engine in) and many many more. There was Bury V Dubbers club & Kings Lynn Capri club, all with a dazzling array of cars.
They would probably welcome an AO faction to their events.(£15 a year and a full Calendar).
They are the organisers of "Cars on the Green" at Nowton pk, Bury (Where we showed our Spider).and organise all sorts of stuff besides their monthly meets at t'pub.
I would be proud to be an alfa organiser for a very small area, but I just do not believe there is enough interest from others to form a solo club, but affiliating could work well.
Now then, if folk from other areas were to look at something similar (ie Norfolk, South Cambs, North Cambs,) and maybe more, you may have maybe 3 or 4 members from each small area, but at an Important show, all get together for a good display.
At Cars on the Green last year there were over a thousand cars, from numerous & various clubs with good attendance but only 3 or 4 Alfas and one of those was on Desiras stand, we went on the Bury retro car club stand with the spider and there was an independant GT junior.
I am sure that club members all have different strenghs and weaknesses. I would be happy to assist a fellow club member on a mechanical repair etc. and I'm sure others could bring something to the table.
So to sum up all that waffle..........Break the areas up into smaller factions, but first and foremost you have to break the Apathy that surrounds us, and I need to admit that I was an Apathy casualty, as I wanted more from a club than an occasional plate of chips.
Find an exisitng club and affiliate to it as AO'ers...
Others may disagree with my train of thought, and quite rightly so. You can please some of the people some of the time, you can't please all the people all of the time.
