In fact I cannot wait, and it has been a fair old time since I felt excited about the GTR scene!
Yes Toni.

At the 2017 GTROC AGM, there was general consensus to draw a line under the past.

Regretfully, some GTROC members are unable to grasp this concept and wish to pursue a lost cause to the detriment of so many enthusiasts.

Thankfully, the new GT-R Drivers Club is here, on this Forum, with a refreshing ambition to deliver enjoyment to all in the GT-R and Skyline fraternity.

Roll on 2018.

Companies house has the GTRDC being incorporated 3 days after the GTROC AGM!
3 days after all those at said AGM agreeing that whatever the outcome of the vote the politics would end and everyone would move forward together as a club!

This seems a bit hypocritical to me, and too be honest I'm surprised that people I thought had integrity have shown they are lacking any!

But as I said before I hold no ill will and wish you luck.

Good, let's draw a line under it then shall we? From what I've seen, people who don't like the thought of this new club are absent from the day to day forum activity until it suits them to pass comment on what displeases them. No participation other than to offer criticism

So, back to topic. Any more posts that are referencing the previous AGM will be binned. Seriously, it's the end of the line for discussing what went before as that is not what this thread is about.

Why the angst? The creation of the GTRDC is no different from the segmentation of the original GTROC is it?

No-one involved in the GTRDC setup has said anything about not also being supportive of the GTROC - quite the opposite in fact.

If people don't want to join GTRDC that is their choice but please don't criticise anyone who has set this up or is joining it - that is equally OUR choice.

No-one seems to object the Batallion35 so why not accept GTRDC in the same light? I am not a member of Batallion 35 (largely because I abhor Facebook and its pervasive and invasive social impact), however, I don't have any feelings against those club members who are part of it.

We live in a pluralistic society so "live and let live" -join or don't join but stop throwing stones please.

David

Didn't know you had to post everyday to be able to comment on any issues or news!

Limited time so can usually only come on here to scan to see if anything peeks my interest.

If interest is there then I will post.

Ok,
Lets get it out. There is a certain arrogance from those that "Won" the Elections, with no direct campaigning to a dissafected membership, that those PAYING MEMBERS who were asking for wholesale change and reevaluation of the clubs direction, would just simmer down and fall into line.

The fact is they all joined the club voluntarily, paying for the privilege and it became quite apparent that it was no longer a club they wanted to be part of.

In essence, had the AGM gone their way, this "new club" would just be an evolution of the GTROC. As it is that didn't happen and the formation of a new club was a no brainer.

As I have said before, this is the perfect solution. The GTROC can carry on as they wish and these noisy members can get what they want from a club.
As OC club members they didn't question the vote or call a vote of no confidence, they accepted it and let the board plan for 2018 whilst reevaluating their options.

So, no harm done.

Great bit of pedantry, congratulations. So, you can find the time to post about what you don't like but you can't find it to help out other owners and share ideas/technical help?

Forum use isn't just about chucking your tuppence worth in when something appears that you don't like and I don't really consider moaning to be commenting.

Of course, everyone is welcome to use the forum but the spirit of it is to be a two way thing.

I am sorry you may consider what I posted as moaning!
In future I will just sit and stew about an issue I feel needs addressing!

Sorry to care about the GTR community and the largest issue to hit it for so many years!!

We are getting bogged down here.

Here's the deal. There will be "at least" two clubs present at a range of events this year. Those clubs will have unique offerings, those clubs will suit different people.

BUT

At the clubs core is a love of all things GT-R. So, there is absolutely no reason why you can't all just get along.

As I've said, the split is good for the OC as it means it can move forward without distraction.

I have said my piece, and I hope cleared the air at least for me.

At least it got me back on here again and my mind off the sodding GDPR BS i'm having to write!

Onwards and upwards!

I was merely making light of the situation tbh Rog.

I doubt I could run it successfully from Iraq/Dubai anyway even though I have all the contacts required to do so.
If I do get chance to have the time off, I'll most likely run as an individual entry again to stay away from the politics.
We've had far more fun running independently than within a team.

Are you even a member of the GT-RDC?
It's people like you, chiming with opinions and grand ideas who haven't even signed up that piss me off. Always think you can do a better job without actually getting involved.

Join up, or butt out
