Greg_B said:Well, I was envisioning something like:
Coastal Cruisers: Vancouver Chapter
Coastal Cruisers: Van Island Chapter
Coastal Cruisers: Valley Chapter
All are Coastal oriented. There is power in numbers (we all use this forum). We all help with Cruizer Daze. We all go on runs together. We have meetings on different weeks, so someone who wants to make a trip to meet and greet can. We each have our own board, but work together though our common name.
Greg your timing is excelent... I just got talked into forming a club over here by a guy in Duncan and Abel (Too Tall). I posted on Island4x4.com and Steve Shulhan (who I actually met last month) responded and sent me in this direction. I figured I might as well start a new thread rather than Hi-jack an old one. I really don't know whats involved in starting a club, but I have over been here for 3 or 4 years and I still know very few cruiser people around here.
For those of you who don't know me my name is Mark and I was a member of the Coastal Cruisers for 3 or 4 years befor moving over to Ladysmith. I have not been in the club for about 4 years now and there seems to be quite a few new faces. I went by Diff Boy in Steve's yard (befor Dan) or Bogger Boy for my baby boggers that I had, that should refresh a few minds.
I think a strong association with the Coastal Cruisers would be a very good thing for a cruiser club over here and I will need some assistance in finding out how to form an official club.
The one problem with the island is that there could be 3 different clubs here if you seperate into regions, so a weeknight club meeting might not work for everyone. I think I will just have to wait and see who is interested and their locations on the island. I have only had a couple responses so far.
Please spread the word. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I work away alot so I can be hard to get in touch with, just give me a little time though and I'll eventually respond.
