    Ok guys, I have officially opened Pandoras box today and have started working through the preferences everyone (quite reasonably - and I would be the same) has as to who they are happiest being near, or not as the case may be. I am currently about 25% through getting everyones preferences in, and then I should be able to publish the planned layout and see if anyone requires any further final tweaks before the layout is finalised.

    Ok things are going smoothly (at this exact moment in time) regarding our event

    I have been enquiring regarding the three possible additional awards for the day that our sponsors very kindly sponsored last year, hoping they will be kind enough to do the same this year - more info on that as and when I manage to get feedback.

    Our photo album for this years event can now be found here: https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ao-7HJVAHqvXnSjtLh0-n8i8cxPI for those of you without social media, and we also have an album in place on our Facebook page - you are welcome to look now if you want, but there is only one image there so far

    The layout for the day has now been worked out, bar any minor tweaks, and you should see a copy of my incredible artwork (incredible for a spider on paper ) online at some point tomorrow.. it will give you an idea as to the layout for the day, and where to find everyone at our main venue.

    The general feedback I have been getting today from our event sponsors, and attendees is very positive, for which I am grateful Without everyone getting involved in all the ways that they are, we would not have the day we have got planned. A massive THANKYOU to everyone!

    OK Guys, As promised here is the layout plan for our event. I have to apologise for my artwork - my art teacher in the 80s gave up on me There may by typos, and it is not to scale but it does show you where everyone will be on the day and where to find everyone. Apologies again for my artwork

    OK, it's that time of the week again

    This week has been quite busy for us - I have been talking to our event sponsors and clubs/forums that will be at our event, and as a result we now have the final layout for our event (which you have hopefully seen by now). Looking at the layout, this is without a doubt the largest event we have run to-date. Last year, we didn't use the central area - and we all had a lot of walking to do to get to see everything. So we have a new layout that guarantees no-one is more than a few metres (or yards ) from the stands, talks, awards or prize draw. There is a flip side to this, as I have just had one potential event sponsor walk away due to the layout.. but I think this layout has more gains than losses for us, and we can scale it up depending on how many attendees and stands.. I hope everyone agrees

    I have also just started to follow up on the additional awards I am hoping I can get sponsored.. more news on that to come as soon as I know the outcome.

    We still have spare capacity for more stands, if anyone would like a trade/club/forum plot but fundamentally I am now concentrating on attendee numbers, and getting the rest of the paperwork sorted for the day - I still need to produce convoy maps, welcome letters, registration sheets and a few other things. If I can get these all under control I can then start following up more on our sponsors pledges, and persuading my better half that it's easier to keep a house full of Jaguar goodies warm than an emptier house

    Here are the current stat's for our event so you can see what we currently have lined up for you (remembering I am not known for my statistical or mathematical accuracy ):

    Our event forum threads have received over 21,400 views
    Our event Facebook page has a growing following of 430 friends
    Our Twitter feed now has 580 followers
    Our Instagram feed 164 followers
    We have 121 attendees and 71 Jaguars signed up
    Our attending Jaguars span over 60 years of production
    We have 17 incredible sponsors
    We have 6 clubs/forums involved with our event this year
    We have 3 Presentation slots or 'Talks by the Pro's' booked
    We have 5 awards (am hoping to gain 3 more for us)

    OK guys, we have just 94 days until our event and some tasks are coming to the limit of what I can manage, and other tasks are surfacing that I have yet to do.

    As for event sponsorship, I have had no further takeups recently so I am concentrating on working hard with our current existing sponsors over the next days to make sure we have everything right for both you the attendees and them.

    Event paperwork - as of today the attendee registration paperwork has been designed and printed up, leaving me with the convoy/drive mapping, welcome paperwork and 'support us' paperwork yet to do.

    Welcome Packs - we have received items etc from one sponsor so far - all in storage for the moment, and I have started tracking down the advertising literature which will be going into the packs, prior to following up with our sponsors for the remaining items we are waiting on.

    Soraya from DesignCats has asked for the data on stand sizes, so she can rework the planned layout into a real life layout - I am contacting everyone who will be specifically running a stand on the day, over the next week to ask for this info.

    Our Facebook account has been really picking up - with European Jaguar clubs, and owners friending our event

    Our Instagram account has been fairly quiet but becasue it is more difficult to use with a desktop I am only occasionally updating it

    Our Twitter account has been gaining followers from the States lately, as well as the UK

    Our website, whilst it has lulls and busy periods, is really starting to pick up some traffic which is great, incredible really as I am not a web designer in any way lol

    We have had some more attendee signups this week which is fantastic - if you are considering signing up and have yet to do so please, please do so sooner rather than later - we have a great free Jaguar day out for you
