Yorkshire Area MASC ‘Virtual Meeting’ Thursday 29th October 7:30pm

by Mark T Boldry

Well, it’s been a while… some of us haven’t seen each other since March or even before.  I hope all of you have been receiving my few email newsletters (for want of a better word), but I know some of you won’t have, new members in particular.

 

So, in an effort to get as many of us as possible together, it’s been suggested that we have a Zoom meeting… a sort of virtual club meeting.

Grab a drink and come and join us from 7.30 pm this Thursday… we have the Club’s Zoom facility from 7.30 until 9.30, so I guess you can just pop in and say hi, or stay for the duration, either way, you’ll be very welcome.

 

Join Zoom Meeting https://zoom.us/j/96669299845?pwd=RzYvTmNkdjF3RWNRMXdvdDA2dmMwUT09 Meeting ID: 966 6929 9845 Passcode: 766087

 

 

Hopefully that link, ID and Passcode will all work.

 

For those who haven’t been practicing on Zoom during the lockdown or working from home, it’s quite straightforward to use, or maybe a family member can show you how.

 

We’d ask that you set your microphone to ‘Mute’ so we are not all trying to talk over each other and there is a ‘Wave’ button to grab our attention for when you would like to input

 

Anita and I will look forward to seeing you all, chatting about our cars and hopefully, some future events to look forward to.

 

See you on Thursday.

 

Mark & Anita.

MASC Somerset Area Rep role

MASC Somerset Area Rep role

by Andrew Parrott

Hello

As I hope you are aware the Somerset Area of the Midget & Sprite Club has been without an Area Rep for a little while now. Colin Chorley has been doing a good job keeping things going but the club would like to fill the Area Rep vacancy as soon as possible.

You are receiving this email as our records show that you are a MASC member in Somerset and are therefore eligible to put yourself forward for this role. The club does not appoint Area Reps as they normally emerge from within the membership or the role is passed on when the previous Area Rep stands down.

I would like to summarise what the Area Rep role involves:

  • Essentially, an Area Rep acts as a hub within an Area, keeping members up-to-date with relevant local and national events, passing on information from other Areas and providing feedback to the committee via the Area Liaison Officer.
  • Each club Area should aim to have regular monthly meetings and it is the Area Rep’s responsibility to plan these and promote them. Local members’ views should be sought regarding the location and timing of these meetings.
  • Whilst an Area Rep should be aware of what is going on in their Area they are not solely responsible for organising events and they are encouraged to share this aspect of the role with others in their group. It should be noted that the club requires all participants in road runs to complete a registration form and the Area Rep should ensure that the event organiser arranges this. Sample registration forms and an explanation of their use will be provided by the club.
  • Ideally, each Area Rep should submit a monthly report for publication in MASCOT. Each report should be a maximum 500 words with up to four pictures. Four reports per year minimum.
  • The club’s Membership Secretary will inform each Area Rep of new members within their Area. The Area Rep should aim to contact each new member within 2 weeks of them joining in order to welcome them, introduce themselves and tell them about upcoming events including the location and timing of the Area’s monthly meeting.
  • The club provides a suite of tools on its web site that the Area Rep should use to promote the Area, create events and keep in touch with members. Area Reps should endeavour to use these tools whenever possible and report any problems encountered to the Area Liaison Officer.
  • Area Reps are not expected to be technical experts and any technical questions may be passed on to any of the club’s own specialists or anyone within the Area able to deal with such queries.
  • The Area Rep role is a voluntary position and you should be aware that the club does not remunerate any of its volunteers be they Area Reps, committee members or other officials. However, the club does cover any necessary out of pocket expenses incurred while performing any given role, e.g. printing and postage.

If you would like to propose yourself or anyone else in the Somerset Area for the Area Rep role please get in touch. The role could be shared and if you feel that you could perform some of the activities listed above with help from someone else then please let me know.

Also, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns regarding the Area Rep role or activities within your Area.

 

Kind regards

Andrew Parrott

MASC Area Liaison Officer

Frogeye for sale

Frogeye for sale

by Terry Horler

Hello fellow Mascavites,

Just received news of a rather interesting Frogeye for sale. This example has been modified for motorsport use, probably a hill climb car. In storage for around 30 years, in which time it has lost its bonnet and doors. I am told that it runs and is rust free. The rear shroud has been cut back to that of a MK11 Sprite shape and a roll over bar fitted. Engine has a DCOE carb and oil cooler (full spec not known) Open to offers, the Frogeye is located in Gloucestershire. I have some pictures but of course, needs to be fully inspected. The owner Toti Gifford can be contacted at –   toti@tegifford.com      07884 258698

Happy Spriting,

Terry

Hello fellow Mascavites,

Thank you for your replies to my test message. I am pleased to report that the Masc website messaging facility appears to be working well. Of the 79 members on the local list, only 3 emails failed to deliver. This is actually an improvement on the previous local messaging. It may well be that this may be the first message that some will have received for a very long time, if indeed at all. I have also learned that the local messages are shared with other area reps, hence our secrets are no longer safe! More usefully, our neighboring areas will now know what we are up to just as soon as we know ourselves.

There of course, it all comes undone at this point in time. We are not doing anything in terms of meetings and events for the forseeable. However, we can still keep in touch for all other matters of a Spridgley thing nature. I can certainly recommend that you give the club website a visit if you have not already done so. Even if we cannot meet up for our meetings and events, there are still plenty of ways to keep in touch.

Regards to all,

Terry
