I bought my G8 GT back in June 2009 and one of the first thing I did was get on these forums to see if there was a local G8 club gathering to share idea's and to show off our cars to the public. There's been one gathering that was good and that was back in June 09. Then I drive to Bellevue this past Wednesday 01/13/10 and to my suprise there was only Three of us Mike,John and myself. So what I'm gathering here is you guys are to good to sign up on the web site and show up when try to have a meeting in your back yard. I have heard all the excuse's, I have a wife, Kids, Work, Weather, my head hurts or what ever. This is a sorry excuse for a club. I have seen you twice at the meeting so far and what the hell is 1/2 a washer Exhaust MOD.
Ummm, Ben, I do believe you are in concurrence with the point of my post. You want local involvement, not a national forum with a regional section.

I already am a member of 2 G8 Forums plus about 5 others that I follow actively.
I am really not trying to be negative, but I just can't understand why a seperate forum is necessary.
This is the perfect example, anyone who isn't over there gets excluded. Seems to me if you wanted people to show you would post it for everyone. Not make people sign up on another forum.
Just my 2 cents.
Tony, would it kill you to support/contribute to a local forum, in addition to the national ones? By the way, if you really were
in agreement with Ben's views, (which you might want to reread a little more carefully by the way) we would have seen you Wednesday! What have the other two ever done for you that makes you so devoted to them? As a source of information, they are great, (of course you have to consider the national appeal, and the fact they have been around for years, and have national sponsorship/advertisers) as a place to connect with local people on a face to face, one on one, not so much. And by the way, nobody is excluded
! All the info on our forum is available to the lurker/visitor, no registration required! Oh, and by the way, we have posted PNW G8 Club GTGs and meets on this forum and the other one, and turnout was not any better! The Club forum as been posted here numerous times, and so far nearly 30 people have registered, all from the PNW, and we have had over 35 THOUSAND
page views, in just over two months. So it seems we have something someone wants to read/see/contribute to at our little local site. But, if your idea of involvement in a forum with your local G8ers is here, ENJOY!
Bellevue is north end? Pulease.
The location was chosen as a mid-point
for the Puget Sound area. I personally wouldn't expect anyone to drive any further than the 35 miles one way that I did............Oh, but wait, nobody from the northend did, imagine that!!
