I would really appreciate feedback from active members in the West of Scotland. As you are aware the current forum set up divides Scotland into North & South which is a fairly sizable geographic split.
Although I have only been a member for a few months I am considering becoming a more involved member in the West of Scotland supporting and proposing event ideas>meets >garage events etc however my primary goal would be to get more members coming along from the West not necessarily increasing the number of events taking place throughout the current South region…..
Having set up the National GT Meet taking place in April I am now keen do a bit more.
Looking back through the “Was That You?” South sticky thread there appears to be a more recent weighted interest toward the East of Scotland and as a benchmark it’s all I really have to go on. This may be partly due to Mr Clark abandoning Alfa Romeo dealerships on the sales front about five years ago ……..dealerships in Glasgow & Ayr disappeared overnight…
I drive around fifty miles per day around Glasgow and if I am being perfectly honest in ten months I have had two maybe three exchanged waves. I’ve been stalked by a 156SW but that’s another story. The majority of Alfa drivers in the area choose to ignore me or look at me as if I am some kind of alien.
This sadly does not inspire me with confidence. Clearly cost may well be an influence/ factor as members attending events have the ridiculous cost of fuel plus food etc. Personally I have limited disposable income but will try to attend as many events as I can afford as I thoroughly enjoy the meets.
Please vote and feel free to add your own thoughts or comments as this will keep the thread active however I will ask admin if they would kindly make it a sticky thread to maintain visibility.
Will run poll a while and take it from there. Thanks in advance for your valued input. Comments are also welcome from across the UK membership but please only place a vote in the poll if you are in the West of Scotland. Thanks
