I must first declare my connection with The Historic Volkswagen Club. I'm the current Display Manager and as such I arrange club displays at several of the VW meetings throughout the country and at non VW classic car shows.
The HVWC is not a large club, although the current membership total of just over 200 stands at its highest point for many years. The website is only a small part of the club and I think it unfair to say that, "the only thing that changes is the for sale and wanted page". The website is actually quite up to date with details of the 2010/11 committee, a full diary of the 2011 show season and a downloadable 2011 display form for members wanting to show their cars with the club. Being a small club it's not possible to fill the site with galleries of photos of the major shows -these are fully reported elsewhere and in particular on this site with many excellent photos from Rob and others. The photos from the 2009 club meeting at RAF Cosford are actually the last ones of that type of meeting. The 2010 AGM was held at a pub in Leicestershire with a buffet lunch and this year is to be held in Derbyshire with a full Sunday lunch.
The Club has been very active this year with displays at Stanford Hall, Volksfling in Scotland, Peppercorn last weekend, plus a sizeable club contingent at Bad Camberg only three weeks ago. We have displays coming up at the VW Festival near Leeds, VW Northwest at Tatton Park, The Beetle Drive at Crich, the Classic Motor Show at the NEC in November, plus several other classic car shows and a major involvement in the planning and running of the Ivan Hirst Meeting in September.
AW - if you would like more details of the Club or copies of past magazines to look through then please PM me and I'll arrange it. We'd be very pleased to have you re-join the club and I can assure you that you'd be made most welcome.
Sunroof 53 - Many thanks for your support.
