this new tradition is so fun!
Damo doll all wrapped up in Gahey blue hot pants!
You miss a show you are replaced by a doll donated by the person who was the last doll.
Is this is a fat Karl?
Alright lads. It feels nice to be at home and not on a campsite like last weekend!
Just about to pop down the local Chinese, then got a bottle of red sat at home and a copy of "American Pie the reunion". Can't wait.
Christ! Karl needs to lay off the chicken and roids
Good meal, Gay drink, **** film!!
Indian is on its way.
You're so common. Wine is sophisticated like me
I heard American pie was really funny! I'll let you know what I think in a few hours.
Got my new fuel pump on and ahhhhhh quiet as f**k it felt like a swarm of wasps were chasing me wherever i went....
ohh and for scott lifting cars with fork trucks, i thought i would share these...my pit was rammed so i used the old pikey method..
Now chiiling with Tuborgs and my trusty russian standard...
Westy, The film has some funny bits and is not that bad really but its not a patch on the original.
Dave, nicely done mate.
Can you still open the doors and boot?

have a good weekend lads. peace!
Love the forklift Dave!
Sorry to put a downer pub go'ers, but no dolls for AitP(or any future ASN clubstands), having a doll is not acceptable as representation of ASN for family attended events. I know it's all a bit of fun, but instructions from the top means no doll is allowed to represent non attendees, but I'm sure you will find something else.
jo please tell us you aren't serious?
So does that mean at the next Inters we can have a doll, seeing as their was no ASN representation....
Unfortunately not Karl, I don't mind a bit of fun as much as the next man, but it's been agreed by everyone at the top that no dolls on the ASN stand, of you will be asked to move!
Haha, we are apparently going to see some improvements about ASNs representation at shows from AitP onwards.
you got to be joking?
I think we out more effort in to shows than any other member.
the powers throwing their toys out cause we put more effort, more time and care more about ASN than they do?
FKS, that's possible one of the most stupidest things to date.
family? these are just blow up plastic dolls, nothing rude or bad in any way. hell, they don't even have bits.
fk, let's follow the bosses lead and have not no fun, no sense of community and fk all.
Its not really ASN representation that's really the issue, I think its the bosses lack of care about what the users and generally the people that makes this care about or do.
a massive banner, tent and external stickers won't change the feelings on how this forum is run at times and the stupid rules with no explination.
Oh no what a shame
Bet you put in a complaint to get them banned..
Makes me laugh that admin can't even be bothered to attend a bloody show or even comment on members gripes regarding improvement of the alleged stand yet will happily put a big fkn dampener on a little fun... Ffs man get a life. That doll did more for ASN at inters than anything else. Brought many a smile to people's faces from most clubs and was in no way offensive. If it had a big fk off Wang hanging out and a rusty ring piece on show then fair game. But Jesus !!!!!!!!!!
I can only put forward that a bigger effort is going to be made for future events after ASNs failure of representation @GTI Inters!
It doesn't take away the effort you put in Scott, but no blame is put on you. As Audi owners, we're all suppose to show a bit of maturity when it comes to these events where families attend. We have to cater for the masses!
right lads. AITP
what you reckon?
OK and I think we all do.
I think our stands seem to be the most fun, entertaining and friendly stands at these shows (CoV is also great).
the doll is fun and not offensive. not different to a giant Barbie doll.
hmmmmm, if only such a thing existed?
would a barbie doll be acceptable maybe?
This can only be a good thing for the forum and as you know Jo we only want the best for the ASN club stands but I feel it a little bit of a "this is my train set, I decide how fast it goes"
So as a final goodbye I'll let chez wave it off
And Jo lead by example
Don't get me wrong Damo, I have nothing against the doll myself, I even took a frikin pic with it(Chez)! lol
Seriously now, I can see the argument from both side, and ASN's representation at events needs to be more controlled co-ordinated in the future, to make us more stand out than ordinary! There are plans that are going to be implemented in the form of an events team for future events so that we will no longer have the poor representation we had at GTI Inters. By that, I mean our stand will look like an ASN stand, not just a group of Audi's parked randomly. This does not take away the effort that members took for arranging and attending the event last weekend for which I applaud, but it's been promised that future events will be taken more seriously by the Admin.
I hope that is more clear for everyone.
brown corduroy pants, anoraks and beards at the next one lads!...........................................................................
Jo i do get where the head shed are coming from and please don't think I was being flippant. I just think its a bit of a kill joy as the dolls we have chosen to represent the unattended have never been ( lets say distasteful) But that said it ain't my forum. And I can see that they want the best publicity whilst in the public eye. Hopefully the bit of fun hasn't put the pub members it the crosshairs and all will continue to progress at future shows. Whith a little more effort from the top.
Chez looks satisfied!
This had to be the way fwd. would be sooo funny to see a stand full of geeks
Haha looked a lil deflated to me
i think he looks as though he was laughing!
seriously though, its all just daft fun, its a camping event ffs! what next no barbecues or beer?
I will bring a damo doll!
I did a massive speech about this, how's the administrator is just in this for water cooler talk with other database admins and got no real love for Audi's like the members on this forum and I'll believe the changes when they happen, like the ASN lanyards.
but I lost it, so fk it.
we are the users, we attend shows, we make this forum what it is, we make this forum the size it is, we make the shows, he does no.
he sits there and barks orders his subordinates. is he put in half the effort in to the users, shows and none database stuff of this forum my self and others might have more respect for him.
my respect ends at the software time he puts in.
my respect for the mods who put in their time, stands the abuse, negatives and all the work they is on going and will all ways have a pint from me (they to have tough).
Until the admins do than funky code, they get a bottle of 12p water from lidls, opened and used.
I said to much.
night, I hope I did not offend, that's my goal. my getting my point across is my goal.
boring old teachers with patches on the elbow.lol
I can't believe what I'm reading!
The ASN stand was far from anything to rave about at GTI Inters so I'd quite happily go and join another stand if admin don't like me/us having a little fun. No loss from my side.
I'm still laughing at the " 12p bottle of water opened and used"
Anywys fk this **** I'm off to smash our lass.. Night pubbers.
Got to say I agree with this. As much as I like ASN, the stand was horrific at inters, and a blow up doll (not even a rude doll ffs!) being banned seems a bit steep?!
'm sure that we won't be seen as any great loss if you were to just look at the forum numbers, as we are just 6 or 7 people out of 50k + members, even if probably less then 1/4 of those have logged on in the last 12 months. If you look at it from a stand perspective at shows though, we represent quite a decent %age, and an even higher percentage of the fun that happens! The amount of people waving at Karl as he and chez said goodbye was ridiculous, and nobody looked offended. If the chap from Audi driver magazine is willing to take a pic of a blow up doll, I can't see what the issue is personally. I suppose it comes down to whether or not you have a sense of humour though. Jo obviously does, as he is pictured with chez and also had a good look as Westy took a beating from Damo..
