30th - 31st May
   Asparafest, Nr Evesham. On the back of the Microcar Clubnight at The Fleece, Bretforton, has come an invite from Nigel, the Landlord, for Microcars to attend this event as his guests. Home of the best Asparagus beds in the country, the event is a celebration of the harvest season, also it is a gourmets delight and Nigel's beer tent will offer some 100 differing real ales, ciders and other alcoholic drinks. The Wurzels, and the Moulettes, amongst others will be playing on one of the stages. Even a massed band of Ukuleles is promised, bring yours! Add the elements of a county show and it ticks many of my boxes as a weekend away. Loads to look at in the area, indeed a driving event might well be included. The actual Asparagus Classic Car Treasure hunt is held earlier in the week, I understand.
   See - http://www.asparafest.co.uk/
Since our South of Birmingham contingent are helping with the Hatton Garden Job later in September, it will probably fall to the MEC element of locals to The Fleece to organize the access to participate in this event.

There are some good events in here. This time the format should allow for rallies not yet up, or new info, to be posted into the menu. Not sure if I am the only person who can do that or if the moderators can too. Also you should be copy the list and thus downloaded into your own diary or magazine. See if it works. Lets get this information out there.

Sorry Jean. I got to the point this morning of no longer seeing mistakes and had to stop! Then it was a nice day, you can work outside till 7 now, hurragh. Removed all the gubbins from a Villiers engine, so you can see the bare unit, not the fittings, as it came out. Also stripped out a Goggo 400cc engine bought off EBay, and apparently missed by everyone, in the extra few hours we now get. Anyway been a bit more editing. List looks better and easier to read, I think. Some more to do yet as have to access Club info, like Bonds etc. Anyway got to go and try and paint the bathroom now.

Some more to do yet as have to access Club info, like Bonds etc.

A reminder, perhaps, that there are two types of car event: "open" and "club".  The open events are those organised by some group, but open to all, and the more cars the merrier.  Club events are really a meeting of the members of the particular club.  (And being club events, will be advertised to club members within the club magazine or whatever, so need no other external publication.)

The Bond Owners Club will be doing several club events, but - so far - has no open events planned this year.

Yep. Not got into that yet, as so far the events are open and freely advertised, or restricted by definition to the marque of car, with the hosting club not unduly concerned that marque cars attending are not in club membership. Clearly by getting these folk along to an event, they hope to enrol them as new members. With the Messerschmitts its been the practice recently for the one club to invite the other. Many of the members are the same anyway, and while the clubs have yet to unify in any way, the old animosity is mostly gone. Not least as the ancient split has few folk who were really involved in the tiff left upright to perpetuate it. This would seem to be a reasonable way to have a rally, but their are always reasons for restrictions or alternative attendance rules.

It might be that some Club Nights fall into this individualism too. Yet it is worth advertising, as its a bit daft if some guy finds he is on top of a meeting he can access, but otherwise would have no way of finding out about it. He can be troubled to join and participate. Well directed advertising brings in the numbers, even to restricted events.
 
Its sad to say that near enough none of the above listings appear in the national media almanacs, and yearly events diaries published, and given away free. Much of the organisational effort goes to waste, as potential attendees do not get to know there is an event. I am not even sure why I am the one pooling the rally info still, when I am conscious of attending few events now, unlike I used too, and I no longer serve, or belong, to a microcar club. Still I am repeating myself.

Al, I think these Events and Club Nights should go on the website rather than the Forum so that they can be continually up dated through out the year.  Sadly as we have no one with sufficient time or expertise to undertake this for Rumcars at the moment I think it should be a separate entity on the Forum rather on a running topic but I am not sure how that is done either!!!!!!!  So I will shut up.  Jean

I had wondered about that. But the raw data is here to be shuffled by them's that know how. Do topics or lists grow better as a thread or as a entity of themselves? I do not know. Perhaps both are possible? RUM having something a neutral position is ideal to collect and diplay all events that offer service to what it calls microcars. It has no great bias, other than maybe its own bunfight. In doing so it might bring a few more folk who find there is some diverse stuff going on. I am happy to provide the ammo where I can. But feel free to provide input, guys.

There is currently a CALENDAR function for this forum for anyone to use.  Look up the page a bit and you will see a link to it.
It takes no expertise but it may take a few minutes to enter information.

No one seems to have the time or inclination, which is why I have told you repeatedly in the past that you are going to have a very very difficult time finding VOLUNTEERS to do all this web work you would like.

ANYONE can take AL's list and add it to the existing CALENDAR.
It is about as simple as making a post to the Forum.

So are there to many open microcar events? A proposition worth discussion, resulting from talk about the Bond Owners Club only rally elsewhere  (under Powerdrive, it made sense at the time).

As a rough count I am suggesting the Events list offers 9 specifically microcar oriented events that welcome any microcar over the year. That is not to say the Marque Rallies exclude others from attending.

There does seem to be a reduced number of people/cars attending these events, over time. There can be many reasons for that, but I think we can agree that its a fact. So one strong argument would be to many events mean folk pick the nearest ones and do not tend to travel great distance. Against that is, if you reduce the number of events and they are not spread well round the country you risk folk still not doing the mileage and some areas of no events at all, and others where there is a low turnout still.

As an aside. I live in a rather favoured part of bthe country. I can get to London, Bristol or Birmingham in about a hour. This is brilliant for most things. Yet in the last few years there has only been one rally really within that circle, Bath. Now I am not complaining. Its up to locals to organise local events or you are at the whim of other organisers who, naturally, will tend to organise in their patch, or where activity is known to offer fair support. The National has ventured into my circle several times, to. But I think the National is a different thing. It should be the big celebration of microcars in the year. The South is fundamentally a quiet area at the moment. It used not to be.

Conversely areas that were quiet, are now achieving. The East of the Country, Scotland, and now the North West is making the effort. The more Northerly events are, in fact, quite challenging as the offer mileage rather than a lot of sitting around. It is clear that there is a minority group of Micronauts who really like this events. There are others who prefer the sedentary, show based, sort of thing. I am not doing the campervan thing here.

So you have a running car. You want to use it. With your marque rally there are probably 8 events you can attend, if you want to a year, as well as local general stuff. Is that to many?
What of the bod who has just got his Powerdrive going only to find that the clubs have discovered that by holding mainly closed events they have a better time? At the same time the general events slim down a bit. He might find his potential rallies reduced to only half that, as there is not a Powerdrive Club.

I really am not sure what I think about this one. All I know is there as next to bugger all going on around here. So are there not enough events? The wrong sort of events? Are some to much on top of other events?

The other thing to factor in are the general classic car events and everyone I would guess has a few of those fairly close to home. Some years I have taken a microcar to these and almost not felt the need to go to a microcar rally. The advantages are you can drive your car to them with ease and microcars usually get a fuss made of them at the events because of being unusual. What I missed was the road run. Now I try to attend some of both.

RUM CARS is the Powerdrive's group of like minded people or any other unusual car of course.  The Hammond Open Day on Sunday 26th. July held in Kent is the golden opportunity to meet people with other odd ball cars as well as Messerschmitts, Isettas, Bonds etc., all are very welcome.  We have an official  camp site on the farm (see page 28 of RCN 124) so there is the opportunity to make it a long weekend.  If anyone would like to organise one we would be quite happy to accommodate you, have a chat to Lesley Cook on 893850. There are plenty of interesting places to visit along quiet country roads too and and a good pub with in walking distance. Several other Classic Car Clubs that have used the site successfully.  So with some extra organising help the Open Day could be extended if anyone wants to take it on.
Also, considering there are over 1,300 cars on the Register now what about some of their owners getting together and arranging a  RUMCAR event in their part of the country which would be open to all microcars as is the Register    Jean
