PostSubject: Auto jumble stall for the club at shows!!   Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:40 am

I have aired the idea with Lee and am now airing it with your good selves!! What i am proposing is the following..: as classic car owners I'm sure that alot of us have the odd spare part that they don't want anymore or are not going to use, my idea is we donate any parts we can do without to the club so we can then set up a Thanet classics auto jumble stall at the shows to A: raise money for the club for our future events, B: pass a percentage of it to our charity of the moment, and C: by having a big stall at the shows we would be again raising our profile as club and hopefully truly make an impact at the shows!! If each member donates just a small box of bits, added all together it will make an impressive looking stall!! Have a think and let me know!! The more money the club can make for itself the bigger and better the things we will be able to do as a club in the future!!

As I said to you earlier Luke, its a great idea and I would love to trial it at Faversham Charity Car Show in August, so if we could get this rolling it would be great!

Something to think about though:

A rota for covering the stall at shows so its not just the same people on it all day, maybe sharing it out and doing an hour each or something?

I have some stuff that was recently donated to the club that could be used for the autojumble stand! Smile I also have some other stuff in the garage that I can dig out.

Seems like a good idea to me. I have parts for cars I dont own eg. Hillman hunter and also other parts which im happy for the club to have to sell. As long as someone (not me!) can store the stuff its all good. Very Happy

I've got a few bits and bobs, a few spare gauges, etc... I think Luke has stumbled onto a winner of an idea!!!
