    Morning dude, the mrs is off to get her hair did and me n the lil dude are going down to a mates to strip his rear bumper off and replace some rear light as it didn't like being reversed into a big blue metal council bin :lmfao:
    Then a bit Of shorts shopping for the hols in Manchester later, then off to pick Meg up as she gets back from the school France trip today. Can't wait to see her she's well meen missed.
    Tomorrow will be spent on the lash at the cricket club eating BBQ food, nom nom nom... Meeting Amanda's real dad for the first time. She ain't seen him in over 20 yrs so it's all going to get emo I reckon.

    Come one guys, be realistic, boycotting the clubstand over a doll?!

    I had to step in and mention about the doll not being able to turn up due to the mention of a Damo doll turning up. It was better to mention it now than later when everyone has got him(damo:laugh:) ready and expect his attendance! lol

    No one has said anything bad about the ASNs attendance and participation of the stand, but it has come to head that ASNs representation was a poor showing from Scott's 'Lack if ASN Banners' thread in the rants section, and the ASN team looks to rectify the problem from here onwards.

    so to rectify this problem there is to be no fun or community spirit on the stand from now on?

    they need to get a ****ing grip.
    what makes me respect them even less is that you find yourself, a bloody nice open minded bloke, coming in here and telling us. whats that all about???
    they need to think about what they're doing.

    as said earlier:
    '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 not.'

    good luck at future shows. you can count me out.
    we'l see how well the ASN stand goes without the members that bother to bring people together.

    Just dress Joe up as Damo's replacement!!

    On a serious note, come on guys dont get all defensive/annoyed. Its just a doll and Joe was only passing the message on. The shows will improve with or without your attendance. We all hope you will still attend. Can still have fun and a good time.

    Completely missed the convo about the doll last night and I think it is a fkn joke as didn't harm anyone and was only a bit of fun
    Do feel sorry for you a bit Jo as feel your getting flak for being the messenger
    I think maybe we should consider the COV stand as can still have some fun and can't imagine a silly doll would upset them

    im certainly not having a go at jo, i know he's only passing on a message which is unfair on him and us.
    but yeh, you're right. and COV have a stand at most of the shows we go to, and they are ALLLL about community spirit and members having fun, for them its not all about one persons uptight reputation, or lack of.

    Afternoon mofos! :laugh:

    Enough of the **** we're talking up above!

    I just had a go in THIS! :racer:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    It's only a Stage2 GTR with 590bhp! :faint:

    I had around 10 minutes in it, 5 of which was warming the bloody thing up! lol, but it's enough. Words can't explain how quick this beast is! It's just fast with a capital F! I managed to wheelspin the rear wheels in 2nd gear on the move. Only got to use full throttle in 2nd and 3rd gear, 4th I'd be doing 3 figures+. The adrenalin rush is unreal, my hands was shaking when I parked up and got out! Driving one is a lesson in restraint, how anyone can keep one of these to the speed limit has good self control, the car is just alive and wants to eat everything up in it's path, even a Lambo Gallardo feels slow after driving one of these!

    That is all. xxx

    Afternoon lads,

    I was trying to enjoy my BBQ in the chapel and it started again.
    :(

    This is my BBQ.
    [​IMG]



    I've been on the phone to Administrator, had a nice long chat with him about a few things and learnt others.
    Couple of things, he's sorting out the banners and making changes to some things.

    I'm not sure what I can say, he kept losing signal, so for now I'll be quiet and see what happens.

    Over all, we can chill, carry on as normal and see what happens.

    I'm still going to AITP as I hope the pub regulars and new members will be.
    I hope to help out with ADI, I got some ideas for our stand that I hope people will help with. Should be good if it works, time will tell.

    Any way.
    Chill lads and lets get beer flowing.
    Yut, Heres a orange juice!!

    I am indeed! :laugh:
    Seriously mate, I nearly shat my pants it was that quick. You see the pics and read the reviews, but nothing prepares you for what happens when you mash the loud pedal! OK, this one is tuned, a standard one can't be much slower.

    My mate who let me have a go in the Lambo owns this, he told me to turn back and have another go, I said once is enough, it's bloody scary!

    In 2 weeks time, he will have a Ferrari F430 for a week, and I need to go look for him. :racer:

    Look I like a bit of fun & no I'm not being a killjoy, but Scott there are 2 sides to the coin, yes the doll seems harmless & fun when its just a bunch of blokes messing about as thats what guys do, but it is a family event & can also be offensive & rather rude to others & lets be completely honest, the context of the doll we're staring at wasnt exactly meant in a harmless manner going by the pics, certain written word in a location & pics of members in positions, come on thats not what it was meant to be for, its not like a man doll was sat on a seat in position where a member was supposed to be which was the original reason for it as such pointed out by Joey.

    From that POV, then I think the hierarchy are right to step up & ask it not to happen again as a representation of ASN regardless if you find them humourless or not, I wouldnt want to have to explain the doll & actions of people to my daughter & I'm no prude either.

    Butt, there's a right & a wrong way to show your opinion & calling anyone on the site a fxxxing twxt on the open forum & as someone involved in events for me is totally the wrong way & tbh disgusting attitude to have, I think an apology is very appropriate, as lets be honest we've seen members banned for allot less.

    I've become frustrated by somethings in the past on the forum, difference being I chatted with said person to get a POV across & that person openly has there number on the site for that very purpose, so if it bothered you so much, why didnt you just ring them & state this opinion down the phone to them directly, I just dont get the logic tbh.

    I've been on the phone to Adam for most of this afternoon and we've said our bits, I've apologised and we've moved on.

    I am sorry for my words and if they offended any one.
    It was not my intention to offend any one.

    I will learn from my actions.

    Lets move on. :)

    Sunny here at the mo and around 20 degrees but the clear skies means its cold at night brrr!

    Why is everything so expensive over here! ggrr! Just spent a fortune on lights for the house, they would have cost a fraction of the price back in the UK. Cant even fit them ourselves, all have to be done by a sparkie with a certificate of proof!!!

    The weather can't make its mind up here.
    Sunny for 5mins, raining for 5mins and then sunny and then raining and so on and so forth.

    I don't care, I'm watching Anchorman with a big bowl of sweets.

    Honestly? For a better life for our kids. So far we think it is. There are plus's and minus's but overall its great. Love the summer, laid back lifestyle, lots more to do outside and guaranteed good weather. Hate winter as it can still have warm days but the nights are cold and the houses have no heating (not what we are used to) and no double glazing and prices can be high for some things. Would I do it again if I had the choice.....yes without doubt.

    Cant wait to get a pool and love the fact you can wear little clothing most of the year!

    Nice.
    A mate just moved from NZ to OZ and he said the same about the prices.
    Costs so much more than NZ and here but he loves the life over there.

    We've thought about moving away but the wife won't leave her family just yet.
    Might look in to it again in the next couple of years.
    Unless this country really improves.

    All I can say is give it a go and if its not for you then you can go back. I just wish we had done it a few years ago when the exchange rate was better and the UKs house prices hadnt slumped lol Hey ho!

    But remember the grass isnt always greener.... here most of the time its brown and sandy lol!

    Really!!!
    come on
    the club is controlling the scene and not it's members
    You know wat? I'm sooooo fed up with the scene ATM its all corperate and money orientated
    inters was pony with the clubstands stuffed into the corner while the big tuning company's and trade stands get centre stage

    Lets face it with out us your clubs,tuning company's and trade stands aint worth a wa*k
    the scene is up its own bum bum
    the Clubstands are a great oportunity to increase members and you will only do that if there is an attraction and in my opinionis the vibe and atmosphere is wat will bring that attraction
    Whats all this maturity and audi image about? there's nothing mature about the cars we drive (big unreliable turbos,stupid wheels,wmi,lowered suspension,NOS) if I want maturity I'll buy a Volvo estate with a roof rack and dog gaurd
    All the cars we drive are second hand motors that we can barely afford to run and the clubstand is sposed to be a place where we can all meet liaise and have fun
    I suggest every moderator,admin director or whatever gets there arse down to the stand and get friendly with the members and see just what a asset they are to asn
    i love ASN &without it COV wouldnt exist, as its here where I got my taste of being part of something
    this is nonsense

    The members need to be brought rite back into the scene
