Yes, 15 years in Sept 23. Time flies.

We'll have to have some talks behind the scenes re: the future of the forum as its currently costing me 175/yr to host and whilst I'd love to keep it going, it's not getting the traffic to warrant the cost these days. We used to get donations from members that offset that cost for many years, but that's long dried up. If the forum does go, we'll always continue to exist on facebook but I know that doesn't suit everyone.

Hi Steve,thanks for being there ��. Certainly the quietest I've ever known on here and Certainly shouldn't be funded by you. I even have access to Facebook now,but don't use it much. If SES was to move there in a similar format I could cope and maybe younger members would be more active with a forum they are more familiar with.

Very little activity here now.
To be fair I've been very lacking in trying to source any meets as well

Perhaps you should ask for donations I for one am willing to contribute..

I'd be happy to contribute, but agree very little activity on here. Not a great Facebook user,but if I knew SES was using it as a platform I can access it and it is probably more agreeable to the younger members, ie those under 60 🤪🤪

Hi Guys,

I hope you are all well.

I miss the site as it was, and the friends I made. Im not on facebook so missed out a bit when it migrated towards that. This club will probably be the best and most memorable car club I ever belonged to. I belong to the local Porsche club and have for a few years but it doesn't come close.

I, for one would happily donate to keep this moving and am happy to get involved again if it was to ever be pushed forward. Im just not sure how many people are left or would rejoin. I know everyone moves on. I still look at hawks on Pistionheads , so who knows!. That illusive RB320 may happen one day

Hi mate,

I often wondered if you still had the old girl. I guessed you would as that would be hard to part with.

Yeah, Id be up for a meet up somewhere at some point. Maybe see how many we can get. Beachy head in the summer or something. 👍
