one topic that comes to mind is the straddy vehicle topic.

rather then just bring up the problem at the agm i would like everyone to have a think about what we can do about it whether its actually set in stone or just a façade created to deter people with no actual legal substance by disgruntled office people.

keeping in mind straddy is now managed by a private company who says they adhere to QNPWS however from what i here theres no mention of 2wd Awd and 4wd anywhere.....in there documentation

read up on any literature, make some enquiries otherwise we will still be discussing the problem in 2016 2017 2018 etc

due to the AWD ban as well i think there may already be other groups / clubs starting a fight against the pretty picture released on facebook....it may pay to touch base with guys in these clubs and ask what they have unearthed
if in doubt hit it with speed.... just don't hit the cactus!

Please keep in mind that the above Straddie issue is VERY VERY sensitive at present so please don't just get on your soap box and ring up anyone or give anybody a spray or this could turn a hole lot worse , IE we get banned of ALL beaches , please use your heads people .

Another topic that has been given QUITE A FAIR BIT OF LEEWAY over the last couple of years is CLUB REGISTRATION , yes it will be on the agenda , so lets tidy it up folks , IE if your cars on club rego and the nominated club is The Manx Club , and your NOT financial , best you address the problem before the club does

Just a quick FYI on memberships. I've organised the mail out for this week so all current members (47) will be getting a letter in the post with current registration details next week, or Friday if you are lucky.

Dan.

And yes, I've been off the forum since last year's AGM so i haven't read about much at all.

Maybe a topic for discussion if there is anything that could be done to encourage people to provide input into the forum, if other members are anything like me, I love to read/ learn/ admire the goings-on about the place & would suspect the forum plays a fair role in the club. One thing I've noticed from viewing here from afar is that if people do post up pics, stories etc & there's no comments or seemingly no interest from others, it's quite easy to think "why bother" & that puts an end to it. Don't know how, but any way to somehow promote to keep the dialogue going? Maybe try an official commentator to attempt to keep the conversation going??....Just a thought :)

Just a question regarding membership; I've been a member pretty much consistently for the past few years, however don't have the "Manx Club Member" tag on my profile - that's not a big deal, however I've noticed I can't post or reply even when logged in: is this a result of not having that identification, or have I got other problems (be nice, I led with my chin there).
Cheers Dave

All members,

A copy of the Minutes from last year's AGM for your perusal prior to the AGM this weekend.
I'll have some hard copies at the meeting, but thought this might assist members to recall previous discussions/items.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Max

For anyone who is interested it looks like we have been able to get a hold of a Projector and a Laptop so after the AGM I will be playing some of the Old Manx Club Videos as well as possibly some of the new ones from the last few years.

So feel free to hang around and laugh out loud as we look back at the years that was :)

Good to see those that turned up, and some direction in the club.
Buckbug, I didn't see your Buggy or 4wd?

My life's not my own at the moment, had a defibrillator fitted to my heart at the start of December. Ever since then it has been one roller coaster ride after another, was trying to make it down since I'm just up the road, but one problem after another keeps getting in the road. Hope all went well. I'll have to catch up soon and fill you in on the whole story you'll have trouble believing it's true by the time I'm finished but it all happened. See you guys soon Craigy and buggy on
