Only H. or 2. put everyones name in a hat and pick out two or three people to go with H.
Sorry guys, i dont want to get **** about this, but i feel that everyone contributes, from H ( without which WMI would never have been formed) to everyone who turns up and shows their support (without which WMI would not survive).
So like I say Mark, I aint havin a pop, just wanted to have my say, and as far as I am concerned every WMI member is as important as the next.

Right, that said, im off to bed, laters.

Mark m8, memory is a total painin the ar$e atm, caused by apple buying up massive stocks for their new i-book, coupled with samsung cutting production of DDr2 to concentrate on DDr3, wouldnt normally be a problem, but samsung produce almost 80% of the worlds ddr2 market, so all of a sudden prices have gone sky high, for an example your laptop memory 2 weeks ago would have had a buy-in price of about £25 +vat, today its £34 +vat, and going up every day, cant see any ened to it atm, so either buy v.v. quickly, or make do and hope the prices drop back down in a couple of months.
If you do still want some, always got some in stock...

In regards to the handng over of the cheque, I have already decided I will be going, this is to save arguments and upsetting those not picked. I think this is a fair way and as I said on Sunday i really wouldnt like to pick between you. i will be holding onto the novelty cheque so we can do our own photos (with prits) with all members and all cars....hope that clarifies the situation

cheers H

Agreed with Merlin here...the contributions range from leading meets, planning routes, events management, marketing, talking to other clubs through to turning up at evey meet etc...so even if 3 people were chosen, it would be very unfair to everyone else as this could potentially cause a "divide" between members and this would be very unfair to 'John Smith' who turns up to the next meet & commits to coming to every meet.

New member or old, "heavy duty" contributer or the "lite" who turns up at every 3 meets, everyone contributes in one way or another.

Agreed with this too. Keeps it short & prevents upsetting people without a need to do so...

Team spirit, fair behaviour, a positive approach and treatment of one another is the foundation of a successful club.

H says to every new member, whether you have a £500 car or a £50,000 car, we are all equal people, regardless of what we drive or what we do...this applies when it comes to things like this, it would be unfair to name people as this would lower the team morale...

...just my thoughts...

Thanks

well i must say i didnt think hard enough when i posted the above and for that i am sorry (unfortunately thats me all over ) i am in complete aggrement with what everybody has said on this subject.

maybe the good thing that has come out of my post is a fair discussion and clarity.

thanks again guys.

Hi Guys

Thought i would introduce myself i'm Nick from stratford,i was approached buy a member of your's when i was parking one day in stratford(a guy in a works van,stupidly didn't ask him his name)and he gave me one of your cards and we talked briefly about west mids imprezas,i said that i would like to come to your meets and meet you guys but as i explained i work as a chef and so work weekeends when i think you have meets but he said that you have meets in the week also,so if someone would be good enough to let me know when your next weekly meet is then hopefully i could come along,anyway here are a few piccies of my car so if you see me give me a wave
cheers
Nick.

Angel eyes m8 ( cos they were FREE!) when i bought my gold wheels the chap gave me the headlights, didnt realise what they were for ages, so the plan is pop them on and see what they look like.
Wouldnt have morrets cos they are so overpriced, last ones i found on ebay went for 400 quid (second hand) eek!!!

Looking forward to my new splitter though, will post some before and after pics tomorrow night.
