Ladies and Gents, Further to taking on the role of AO for Bristol and Bath I have made a little progress with a Facebook Page set up and we had a first meeting in Nov but life got in the way of a December meet up. WSCC Bristol And Bath area or @BristolBathAreaWSCC The next Westfield World (WW) article is due in by 10th Feb, so I would really like to get together before then and get some news in from you members that live and breathe Westfields in this area. If you think I’ve missed anyone off the list, then please forward this on or PM me and I’ll pass on the info. To that end please could I beg of you a paragraph (or more if you can including pictures) telling me what you have been up to over the past 3-6-12 months and what your Winter plans are leading into Spring? How are those minor jobs going or is there a major overhaul/upgrade/rebuild that would be of interest or you might need a hand with? I will then pull this into an article to re-launch Bristol & Bath across WSCC and WW. Further to this could I ask for any dates for the diary of Shows to attend as (Visitor/Exhibitor/Group), Track/Sprint/Hill Climbs we could/should be attending and any ideas for Area days out/runs/trips/overseas jaunts etc that would be good to get together for. In due course I would like to get together with our neighbouring Areas such as Somerset/Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire/Cotswolds for some joint fun and maybe to ease the burden of organising events and trips? As well as this I think their is mileage in using the KitNet meets to bolster our efforts in the early days. I have taken delivery of the WSCC Bristol and Bath Area Flag/Banner which can be loaned out to give us a presence at events/shows – just shout! Finally, I’d really like to get a meeting in the diary so here goes… Evenings: Tue 22nd Jan Thur 24th Jan Thur 31st Jan Tue 5th Feb Thur 7th Feb Weekends AM or PM: 19th/20th Jan 2nd/3rd Feb I am open to suggestions for a meeting location or we can revert to The Riverside Inn, Saltford, BS31 3EZ.

What is a Shows and Events Coordinator? Principally, the role is to provide a repeatable format for three or more shows and events a year (inc’ Stoneleigh) and to provide members with the behind the scenes organisation and easy access to the kit and equipment needed for these. The role will not be one of 100% organisation, but as the title suggests, will coordinate to enable Members to do their own thing easily and quickly. There is much work to be done over the coming weeks/months to get this into shape but it’s getting there. I know there is a keenness to have a big presence at Gaydon this summer and I’ll work to achieve that. Beyond Gaydon, I’ll be looking for further suggestions of the bigger events and shows we should be attending and we’ll also be incorporating WSC into some of those as well as tagging along on some of their own initiatives. I’d welcome further thoughts on the role and the events you want to be a part of but for now, generally what we will aim to offer is as follows: Central location for storing all of the show and events kit and equipment Easy access to the kit and an audit trail Assistance with transportation of kit if necessary Liaison with show and event organisers to get ourselves booked in A how-to guide to enable Members to more easily organise themselves Management of the show and event stock, replacing older items as necessary Engagement at WSCC Committee level to ensure we have all we need for a successful event I’ll set out the full aims at some stage soon and would welcome comment and feedback when the time comes. For now though, I think a number of key things need to be addressed: Full audit of our kit, replacing things not up to par Documented how-to guide on getting the lit the kit you need for your event Set a date and coordinate Gaydon this summer As has been said, the role is one of coordination and it needs you to suggest and run your own event. I will do the back-end work and make everything available to you and I suspect we should consider covering everything from local car shows, county shows, etc. some of the bigger sprints, the big name car shows and meet your neighbours events and perhaps an annual coast to coast or similar. There is a form attached, use this request WSCC kit and to start to coordination ball rolling for your suggested event. Thoughts welcomed, be gentle… request form.docx
