It must surely be an oversight that we haven't been invited....

I was at the launch event last week and know the organiser very well. Let me know by PM if you want his contact info or even to connect with him on behalf of the club.

Thank you for letting us know about events.

Quite simply, if people do not tell us about events they wish to take part in or events they have attended,
we have no clue.

I send out many emails to members and Viper Friends about events and list events also in the UK Section of the VOA forum pages
https://driveviper.com/forums/threads/17542-Event-...

The response I get back from listing these events and sending emails is mabie 1 or two replies!
Some members like to do their own thing without other members being involved. (which does make me wonder why they wish to join the club in the first place)? Maybe its just for a magazine?

Baz the UK President is in Bedfordshire and Im down in Surrey. Sadly we can't get to every event over the country.

I will contact Mr Telford and let him know about us.
Yours sincerely
Mark VOA UK Vice Prez.

Great driving roads and magnificent scenery - anyone interested? Just a little bit further north than those of you who are classed as northern........!

Midges are quite tame !

Make a trip of it and organise a VOA North Coast 500 trip for a few days before or after.

Good Plan, Why not thumbup

Many years ago in my youth I stayed on the banks of Loch Goil on a scouts holiday, not far from Inverary smile
Not been back since but I do remember the midges!

If we can get a place at the event then count me in for the trip though the 500 coast trip is turning into a traffic jam - take a look on the Scotland region section.......there are some fantastic alternative routes. Happy to help arrange the VEO6.
