:idea: I think we need a "Meets and events" forum.

The Gruppe areas are good but I'm not sure everyone will trawl through all the group areas to see if there are any events they're interested in

A meets and events area might also help encourage multi region events

Just my two penneth

Definately agree Paul.
And I'm all for cars getting out and people actually driving - so it can only be encouraged by a "Meets and Events" section.

We can add a meets/events forum, you'll finish up with the P-1 scenario of having to post things in two areas and making it even more confusing for people.

The Gruppe areas do not need to be full of dead events if the RO's/ARO's delete the dead topics. The Gruppe areas are not in the members only section.

The website Regional pages will also feature Regional events etc, now that they have been tested.

I can see that RO's / ARO's should only be asked to post in one place, but I think there is scope for a simple diary listing with the relevant Region identified, to be maintained on the site, and to be easily viewed via its own tab - much like on the PCGB site.

This can incorporate National and International Events, which otherwise members don't have sight of. Previously the Newsletter performed this function to a point for National Events, and it was fairly simple to view the Regional activity dates in that monthly publication.

Now the Newsletter has gone, I'd like to see someone independently maintain and update a diary listing, without impacting on RO's and ARO's input.

I can see the point of a National event list which is view only but why do we need to maintain yet another list of events? When we have.

A website with Regional tabs that displays the information
A Gruppe section on the forum
Regional sections online under publications, with future events
All Torque on the coffee table with the above

The newsletter as we both know was partly a waste of time because if you received 8 regional replies it was a result.

The RO/ARO is still going to have send the information to the person who compiles the list. 10-1 it's going to be from the RO/ARO that is updating the website, writing in All Torque, posting in the Gruppe section.

agreed Sean too much would be a waste. Meets news can go in the group sections then be edited out or modified later.

RO's can do, as I have, and put a generic "sticky" regarding club nights in the relevant group section. if they want a hand I will help.
Any other events can be posted and then the post either deleted or modified into a report of the event with pics etc?

Can someone tell me how we put the events on the Website? Not the forum the actual website? I know it means editing off the old events etc. Do we (ro/aro) do this or does Jim? the process is easier for me I have the webmaster here on tap as it were but for others??

The Regional events/news on the website can be updated by each region.

Jim Hearnden, Derek Flanagan and Geoff Cox have had the first go and I'm still waiting for feedback from Geoff.

Jim and Derek have found it pretty straight forward so I'll drop the RO's the note what to do over the weekend.

I'm not sure if it's only admin that can make posts a sticky. You will have noticed I tagged your Le Mans Classic trip.

What do you think to the idea of making a sticky for each region advertising venue and club meeting night which is read only. These will be the only sticky's in each Gruppe Section. Like the Southern Region one in Gruppe South.

Then the RO/ARO's post there other stuff as normal and delete the posts when they are spent. That way the sections are neat and tidy without the confusion.

I suggest we have a seperate forum that can be used for Multi Region Events. Like the Haynes visit, Le Mans, track days etc.

A separate forum for events that might interest different regions is pretty much what I had in mind. Small local events are not likely to attract other regions anyway.

With regard to deleting spent threads to keep the forums tidy what sort of time frame did you have in mind??

A newbie might be interested to look through some historic threads to see what's been going on in their region before they joined

A sticky for each region club night is a good idea :D

.. a List/calander of events stuck to the top of the events forum, kept in order, up to date(and including links) including club nights. would be most helpful to a newbie or anyone else for that matter.
