Hey, 


We have always had a bit of an issue in Yorkshire when we try to arrange meets for ukmkivs members [:(]


Other forums such as HDVag, West Yorkshire Dubs, and Dub Pres all seem to hold far more succesfully attended meets than we do.


And we have all wondered why.


Is it because we are just mk4s? Are our cars just not good enough? Are people all too shy to leave their keyboards? 


In my memory we have had 2 really good ones.


One at the Cornmill last summer when it was baking hot [heat]


And the April one this year at the Old George (beleive me 12 cars is a lot lol).


 


And 2 absolute disasters where 2 people have showed, most notably where a member arranged a meet at the Roundhay Fox, then didn't even show up himself! 


So! We have decided to attempt to solve this with the following idea.


Everyone likes photos right?


We have in our midst a skilled lens-man, Tom aka Tolucophoto.


We all decide on a venue, Parkland or Urban or anything you want.


Limit the number of cars to say 8-10 max, and voila! We all end up with some top class photos of our cars!!


Some time in July (date TBC) should be a nice day.


If anyone is interested please add your name to this thread and also your suggestions


Cheers


Jon

I don't think my car is "up to standard" but I wouldn't mind turning up dependant on date etc.

I'll start a list then.


Only suggested a car limit just so Tom doesn't have to work non-stop


Suggestions on venue!

How do you mean inter forum?

I know HDVag aren't keen on other groups crashing their venue/dates
