    Default Meetings

    MEETINGS

    seeing as everything is quiet in vecland(not just the NE but every region) we have been discussing maybe havin a postcode meeting rather than a regional one. our thinking is that in the current climate, alot of people are put off by havin to travel over 100 miles round trip for a meet. so if we had a meeting for people in the NE postcode and TS, DH etc, it will be easier and cheaper for them to attend. once people get to like meeting new members and attending the meets, then we can maybe start havin full meetings again. obviously we will still arrange RR days, detailling days etc aswell. Can you let me know what your thoughts are on this
    cheers chaps

    This is a problem, you're right. I've no idea of the distances involved in the NE but certainly in the West Mids if I organise a meet in the middle of the region, it's a good hour's drive to for me to get there. If I organise something closer to me, then others have to drive the hour to make it.

    Sadly, there's not enough turnout to have meets by postcode, I'd only get 3 or 4 people turn up if I did it like that.

    I know Vectra-Sport have individual co-ordinators for each county, but they never have meets anyway!

    Don't know what the answer is m8

    The problem we have paul, is that our region is quite narrow but long. I would say about 150 miles long and about 40 miles wide, so for someone to travel from one end of the region to the other for a couple of hours is a big ask. We have over 150 members just in the newcastle Area without middlesbrough, sunderland, durham and darlington so i think we have the right situation to make it work

    Think it will work better for NE and DH as for the other postcodes we can but try.
