  2017 - A Year In Review
Posted by: Eeyore - 28-04-2018, 09:07 PM - Forum: Portal posts - No Replies

In 2017 the club enjoyed a good turn out at French Car Show with an interesting location for the club stand in amongst the trade. Although initially thought an issue it was actually a great location so thanks for the PFC team for arranging that. The turnout at pugfest was down on previous years but is as good as always. Next year is the anniversary of the Rallye so should see some increased numbers and a fantastic rallye parade!

We have seen a steady number of people moving on from the 306 as a daily whether into different marques or onto newer french cars. This is a continuation of the trend we have seen in recent years. The number of 306 track cars remain steady. There is little development in terms of new products or modifications for the cars as manufacturers move away from "unpopular" cheap cars and onto more in the moment current cars.

Staffing has had no changes however this will be reviewed in 2018 to make sure we have the most active and responsible team we can have. Thanks to those who have made the events possible and those who continue to moderate the forum and facebook group as part of their daily life.

There has been some discussion as to the future of the club and with the demise of the theywhoshallnotbenamed forum questions have been raised about this forum. We have no intention of taking down the forum and the wealth of knowledge it holds. We are continuing to contact theywhoshallnotbenamed to see if we can get hold of their database in order to recover its contents. Facebook may be where the chat is but the knowledge will remain on here.

  2016 - A Year In Review
Posted by: Eeyore - 01-01-2017, 11:09 PM - Forum: Portal posts - No Replies

In 2016 the club enjoyed a good turnout at FCS and Pugfest reinforced with smaller groups attending the likes of castle combe action days, Ace Cafe Day and PFC Expo. The christmas meet a few weeks ago was well attended and enjoyable as always. It has been great to see both new members and ones we know too well having some quality banter all huddled around the burning bin. Id like to thank all of you for making this year what it has been and hope that everyone will continue to be enthusiastic throughout 2017. We are already booked in for FCS and Pugfest but apart from the usual we hope to see more local meets and hopefully a club lake district meet in the first half of this year. 

We have seen a increasing number of members go on track with their cars whilst fewer members seem to be going down the stance route. The 306 is essentially at an all time low in affordability however we are already seeing parts such as panels and decent interiors becoming harder to find. The top models such as the gti6 and rallye are on the turn upwards and we have seen some great restoration projects on the forum. The other models should start to follow the trend shortly.

We have had a turnover in staff in the later part of this year so Id like to thank those who have been staff for all that they have done and thank the new staff for what they have already done and what they will undoubtedly do in this coming year. The role of moderators is to help organise events and moderate the forum however they arent the only people who can do this. If anyone is interested in getting involved with helping organise events please let me know. Its your club and we require your input!

The forum has always been free to use and it is our intention to keep it so. We rely entirely on donations for both the running of the servers and the club kit we have at events. For the coming show season we need to purchase a few things including replacing the club marquee. The existing club flags and banners are being redistributed to different members and locations around the country so that there will always be half the kit at any show. We dont ask regularly but a donations thread will open a few months before show season kicks off. We currently have club calendars and stickers available so please show your support by grabbing some of these.

2017 should be a great year and I look forward to seeing you all.
