@ Craig; Surely if you are going to send pics to PVW, surely you'd be better off waiting for a bigger meet? Can't see them printing another one if you send in these. There are loloads & loads more beautifull VW's out there like Ronans Rallye, EoinO's Mark 1 Golf, Glenn Golf, Trevors Beetle etc.
I'd say wait for a big meet or organise a meet that you will send pics to PVW, and see what cars turn up. I don't think there was enough of a turn out and cars to make a feature on PVW.

If I were you I'd hold off and do it properly, and show the English boys what we really have.

I could be wrong here, what do others think?

Everyone was informed that the pics from this meet would be submitted to PVW, Stan.

If people were interested in having their cars featured, surely they would have attended?

I'm not being smart lad, but I though everyone was aware of this?

Sure what's the point in sending them pics of the next one AGAIN.........?

They will only be bothered with pics of one Irish meet. Why would they want to publish the same thing twice?

How about hold these photo's and send them in with the next lot. To be honest I can't see much of an article being written up on this. Was a nice day out with a few nice cars, but nothing to write an article on.

QUOTE (daveb @ Feb 27 2006, 03:07 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I agree with Stan, we should get together pics from2 or 3 meets in and let PVW decide what to print. I've seen twice as many cars at the meet in Borisokane in April with warm weather to boot!

Agreed Too. Try to get a load of photos together from a couple of meets.
There was a good turnout on Sunday with some nice cars, but we have PLENTY more
really nice VWs here that should give the others on the other side of the Irish Sea an
idea of what we have over here. There's no point in sending over a few pics.
What we should be doing is sending over pics with maybe 4 or 5 pics of each mark Golf
(Mk1-5)(Golf Rallyes, Limited, etc) some with some great engine & cosmetic work done (G60 Mk1, 1.8T Mk2s, VR6 Mk3s, VR6 Vento etc etc), Corrados (G60, VR6), Sciroccos, Mk1 Cabrios, Mk1 Golf pick-up & van, Skodas (VRs etc),
Audis (S3s etc), Jettas, Ventos, Polos (G40s etc), Passats, Beetles (old & new), Touregs (wait for Daves!),
& maybe some Campers......

Over here we have all the same cars & some even better, so I think that we should give them the best impression possible

Your best bet for a good turn out would be sometime in the summer, as not all the good cars would be taxed all year round, as they would not be used as an every day car. Most would be insured for the summer.

Don't rush it, take your time and make sure the big cars turn up. It will be worth it in the long run.
