Vote of thanks for Colin from NSS.

Postby Malc » Tue Nov 03, 2009 12:39 am

Tonight at our end of season meal, Colin dropped the reins of Area Co-ordinator.:cry:

On behalf of all of the NSS Area members I would like to offer a vote of thanks to Colin for the sterling work he has done as Area Co-ordinator.
Events such as club runs, nights out and chippie runs just don't happen by themselves.
We the members may put forward the plans, but it needs someone to pull all the plans together and keep everyone informed.

Thanks again for all the good work - enjoy your retirement. :wink:

Indeed, many thanks Colin for being a very supportive fellow AC. I like to think we helped each other (aided and abetted more like) when we both became AC's. Your help and support will be missed, but John makes a fine toasted bagal and coffee so I don't think I'll miss you for too long :wink:

Many thanks Colin for your work as AC, personnaly in particular over the last few monthsfor your assistance in making joint arrangements and also for the very warm welcome received from you when visiting NSS.

Good luck John in your new position and hope the health is improving after the accident

And again in an earth language... ?!

Thanks Malc, that's very good of you. I've been chuffed by the high level of cooperation I've received in the NSS area in particular and MX-5 Scotland in general. Can't remember a request ever being turned down.

It would be rude to single out anyone, so I'll single out several: Malc MacBain, Dave and Caroline Makein and Tom Morman more than pulled their weight in organising runs. Lorraine "oop north" was a soulmate in the early months; lost count of the number of times we e-mailed each other wondering what on earth an AC does!

And finally Douglas Hunter who not only mentored Lorraine and I as to what an AC actually does do, but was hugely supportive in promoting the MX-5 Scotland family.

Good luck to John - the area's in safe hands!
Cheers
Colin

Hi Colin

You can now enjoy your well earned retirement as NSS co-ordinator. Hopefully we'll meet up again somewhere soon.

All the best, you deserve it.

Colin, cooperation and Chic... and stuff

I've realised that an AC probably checks the area forums when he/she is not busy sending emails to her/his flock of fellow member.

I've emailed the NSS Mailing list with a vote of thanks for Colin and some OC events up and coming.

Looking forward to a cracking year. I had a cracking year after August !
I love my MX5s!

Thanks all for the nice stuff.

It'll be nice to sit in the middle of convoys rather than at thr front or back for a change. Don't ask for a lot out of life!

I'm pretty sure Colins car is being driven around by Stevie G up here. The one at Carnoustie looks nice but should be well checked for rust in the usual places, very fixable but if present should be reflected in the price. I'm not sure about current pricing but is that a a teeny bit high or have second hand values appreciated that much?

Quite right, Ian, Stevie was good enough to post some photos of the car once he'd blinged it up.

The gentleman appears to have pimped my ride!

John,

If the car at Carnoustie is blue with some natty white stripes, it's probably Tom's.

Colin,

Just another note to endorse the general theme of appreciation for your organisational skills, time and effort in keeping us all in check through the season. All this talk of you enjoying your retirement though, does that officially make you a pensioner? :lol:

Looks like it's been sold so somebody thought it was worth it. :?

When I bought my MX-5 privately the seller said he'd tried CSC to see if they were interested. He was told they'd give him £1700 and it would go on the forecourt at £2900. Shows the dealer margins. OK they've got warranty & servicing to deduct but still a fair whack of profit.

Hi,
Rick and Julie would like to say thank you to Colin for making us feel so welcome as new members this year. Our BRG mk 1 is due back from the spray shop this week in Bright Atlantic Blue and fully blinged. Will post some pics when we get her back. Best of luck for our new AC John and hope he finds his car soon.
Cheers, Rick and Julie :lol:
