MEET REPORT: Wirral Pub Meet #3

Sorry, this pic won't be going into the photo competition!  But here is the report from the most recent Wirral Pub meet!

Well who would have guessed we’ve had 3 Wirral meets with six attendees but not all at one meet. It’s fantastic that from one simple email and post on the club website I have met some really nice people. When I arrived on Thursday I was surprised to see an S2000 already there, it was black so I immediately thought it was Steve’s but when I walked into the pub Steve was nowhere to be seen. I should have remembered Colin who works shifts mentioned he could come to this September meet. Steve arrived and I realised that Colin was already sat and ready to get started. Welcome Colin really glad you made it. We sat and started talking, it’s so easy when you are sat with like minded people!  Another S2000 arrived in the car park! Jason was welcomed to the fold our meet was complete.

We had lively talk about S2000’s hoods, driving abroad, Jason not having his car for very many weeks had never driven it in the dark, hope you got home ok?

Let's try and get everyone together for the next one! This Thursday 11th October https://www.facebook.com/events/1773688509379640/?event_time_id=1773688539379637  See you there!

MEET REPORT: Wirral Pub Meet

We've had 2 evening meets at The Cottage Loaf so far, and it looks like it's definitely going to become a regular occurrance with some very friendly faces, lots of knowledge and plans to drive out being formed!  Come along to the next on Thursday 13th September!

Here is Jan's write up of August's get together..
 

Well Wirral Meet number 2 went ahead!  The Blue and Black cars were joined by a Silverstone that belonged to Trev who brought his wife Lyn.   The weather meant that tops were down, and not only was Trev’s down but he proudly showed off his tonneau cover!  I’ve got one of those but I need someone who can refurbish interiors locally.  Anyone know of someone?
 
Back to the meet.  Trev and Lyn have family who live ‘locally’ on Wirral they drove from Preston to do some catching up.  Trev has owned his car for 15 years, , me 9 years, and Steve just a baby, less than one year.  
 
Steve, Ann and I had some food, which was very good I might add, and a soft drink due to the constraints of drinking alcohol and driving.  We discussed the Megameet and managed to persuade Steve to come.   Steve and I discussed driving the Evo Triangle, never heard of it until Joao mentioned it so we drove it on the following Sunday.  We found out that both of us had driven the roads before, still a cracking drive though!
 
We said our farewells about 9.30 and off we all drove waving goodbye and a promise to meet there again in September except for Trev and Lyn who won’t be here, shame, but it is just a couple of weeks before the Megameet. 
 
Thanks for reading, and if you are in the area in September (13th), please pop along it would be lovely to see you!

ENTER NOW! S2KUK Calendar Photo Competition

LESS THAN A MONTH TO ENTER!  Having had the hottest summer on record, there's bound to be loads of great S2000 pictures out there!  We will be producing another S2KUK Calendar this year, so get your submitting your photo entries via email!  

Please READ and FOLLOW the rules and instructions - ESPECIALLY the ones in red!  (You would not beleive how many people do not send a suitably sized file or haven't named it properly!! PLEASE HELP US! Laughing)

RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS

We all want to see great shots of the S2000, so we have high standards for submissions.

  • Photos need to meet a minimum resolution for print purposes. That minimum is "high resolution" - at least 150 dpi, in tif, png, jpg formats. As a guide, photos should generally be AT LEAST 4-5 MB in size or more.
  • You CAN obscure license plates if you wish.
  • Photos need to be cropped "loose" this is to avoid having some great submissions that we can’t use because the image was already cropped too tight to the S2000.  Try and leave some space around the S2000 so the image can be cropped to fit the calendar. 
  • No watermarks allowed.
  • NO Nudity - images must be work and family safe.
  • ONE ENTRY ONLY per person (so choose wisely) You may if you wish supercede your entry as many times as you want.
  • The photo could have been taken BY YOU any time.

How to make a submission

  • When you have a photo to submit, rename it with the following format:  "Real_Name.jpg" (YOUR NAME not actually Real_Name.jpg!)
  • Email them to: calendar@s2kuk.com
  • Photos have to be emailed for entry. This is your tacit consent that they can be used in the calendar, and on the S2KUK website.
  • Submissions not following the criteria above will be rejected without notice so please follow the instructions! 

Submission deadline 7TH OCTOBER 2018 at 23:59 Submissions will then be put on the S2KUK website for voting.

Submissions MUST be EMAILED and THE MIN SIZE and NAMED PROPERLY.   If they are not emailed, they are not entered.

TIPS

  • Photos shouldn't just be "driveway" shots, no hose and bucket in the background. You need to be creative, artistic, and unique! At least find a scenic spot to take the pic!
  • Lots of people take the ubiquitous 1/4 front or 1/4 rear view, and we can only have so many similar poses in a calendar, so taking the time to do something different and interesting will count toward the submissions.
  • The calendar is not for profit, and stresses the love we have for our cars. 

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COPYRIGHT

By entering this calendar competition you are giving licence to S2KUK (UK S2000 Owners Club) to use your image for publication in the calendar and on the S2KUK website.  

IF YOU DO NOT OWN COPYRIGHT of the image - that is if YOU did not take the photograph it will not qualify for the competition. 

DO NOT ENTER WITH A PHOTO YOU DID NOT TAKE, as it can have serious consequences if it is published. 

By entering a photo to the competition you are agreeing to indemnify UK S2000 Owners Club against any action regarding copyright should you have entered a photo of which you do not own copyright.

MEET REPORT: Ace Café Season Finale

With a full attendance list, we were expecting an epic finale and it didn’t disappoint!  An overflowing car park with 52 cars in attendance, there was an awesome variety of S2000s.  Amazingly clean standard cars, our bagged kids on air-ride, visitors from the north west, Italy and the Netherlands, an Edition 100, two Monza Pearl Red, some really stunning custom paint jobs, and some really beautiful heavily modified cars.

We left the voting up to attendees this time around - there were a couple of tight calls and a couple of clear winners with the club picking best overall car of the night.  Massive congratulations to our winners but a special shout out to Mantas, our best in show with his drift monster. He’s put a lot of work into transforming his car and it shows in the quality of his build. 

Our Ace Café meets are always a firm favourite in the calendar and will be back next May but also watch this space for a new more Northern alternative in 2019 and some very ambitious plans!!  We will need someone's help in the Northwest, so if you're up for it, get in touch!
