Re: NSW Membership
A big thank you to those who braved the weather and took their cars out today in what turned out to be a great lunch! We wanted to provide everyone with an update about decisions that were made today with respect to the future of the club. The NSW MR2 Club will continue till the end of Nationals 2021 (held in 2022) on the June long weekend. After the nationals event we collectively decided that unless there is interest from at least two new committee members to take on the roles of: President, Vice President and Public Officer the club will be wound down and operate on the Facebook page only. The existing committee will work with our sister club Toymods Incorporated to transition any surplus funds and potentially existing memberships to the Toymods club (funds depending).
Until the Nationals event the committee will remain the same. Its important to outline that this doesn't mean the end of the club, the awesome community we have will still continue online and we encourage all members to get involved with Toymods as a majority of us are already financial members and supporters of that club. What it does mean is the end of our club as a legal entity, the end of our subscription with Motorsport Australia (formerly CAMS) at the end of the year and the end of an official committee. Sadly while its great to be part of the team facilitating the club the committee members are all volunteers and don't have as much time as the club requires. Having the Facebook page requires substantially less time to administer and still provides us the platform to host drive events and share events from other clubs that may interest members. There is also interest to retain this email account as well as a method of sharing information and events.
As we get closer to Nationals and then after there will be further information for exactly how the transition will work and the committee are happy to answer any questions you might have but I wanted to share the decisions we made as soon as possible. In the intertim we'll continue to work towards Nationals to make it the best event yet. There's already a fantastic schedule and we encourage everyone with an MR2 to sign up to get an outstanding turnout that NSW deserves.
Stay safe everyone, enjoy the Christmas break and we will see you all in the New Year!
