    Ok Guys,

    So where are we with our 2019 event just a few days after we last looked?

    We signed up a gorgeous 1938 SS100 Jaguar over the weekend, and today we have tracked down a D-Type that may be able to make it, if the work it is currently having done, is done in time

    Our JEC club allocation is filling up fast, and I will be chasing the XKEC and F-TypeEC clubs shortly to see if we can list who they have coming.. all giving us a better picture of our event.

    I am currently just under halfway through making contact with all our sponsors to follow up on any pledges for our goody bags, and prize draw.

    A massive thankyou goes out to everyone for not only putting their Jaguars forward for our event, but also those of you who are managing to locate some of the more exotic or unusual rare Jaguars - you have made a huge difference to our event and the range of Jaguars for attendees to meet.

    We already have the largest and most complete event we have ever put together, and we still have 68 days to go

    Anyone who hasn't signed up yet, please do - our event is free, all you need is your Jaguar and we have a great Jaguar day out for you

    OK, as of this moment in time, I have now officially made contact with everyone involved in our event this week. Some sponsors have already been in touch regarding their support of our event, and there is quite a number of them I am waiting to hear back from - which is understandable as our event is at the start of the event season and our sponsors are busy dealing with other events.

    When I know more I will let you know, but suspect it will take up to a week for some of them to get back to me. The end of next week I will gently chase any sponsors I have not heard back from. Hopefully next week I can get the print run for the Welcome Letters completed as that is the last of the paperwork from my end for the Welcome Packs

    Meanwhile we have a great free Jaguar day out for you, and a few places still available - please consider signing your Jaguar up for free and join us for the day

    OK I know you all think I have been quiet this week, and I have likely taken an incredibly well earned break from the event.. but fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your perspective It has been a really busy week again for our event

    I have been in contact with our incredible event sponsors - all of them (unless of course I have forgotten someone ) .

    Some have come back to me very promptly, confirming that they are supporting our Welcome Packs, Prize Draw and so on, and there are others I will likely be waiting on for a week as things are quite busy with them, and may need to gently follow up with them in a weeks time - but overall I would say things are looking good, especially considering the current economic situation. I will update you on this as I go.

    I still need to print up the Welcome letters too - and am hoping to get a chance to do that printrun next week, completing the event paperwork for everyone.

    We have had a number of signups in the past week, with not only an SS100 Jaguar signed up but also (hopefully) a D-Type, and as of today we have a manual transmission F-Type booked as well Neil Blaxill has also given into everyones requests and will be joining us again with his Mark II that is always the centre of so much discussion at our events

    I have had a few people commenting that they cannot remember the layout for the day - my artwork is just so, so forgettable that it's understandable lol.. but for those of you who can withstand my artwork please follow this link https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ao-7HJVAHqvXnSjtLh0-n8i8cxPI to where we have the 2019 event layout stored online in our events OneDrive account. You can access all the images, plans, and history of our event via the event website JaguarForumsUK | Home but recommend the forum threads for the most complete and up to date information.

    OK, so that is all the news from the week regarding our event .

    Time for what you have been waiting for - the weekly stats on what you can see on the day itself...remembering my maths and statistical skills should not be taken as 100%, as proven a few weeks ago lol and also remember we do not have specifics of all the Jaguars currently signed up...

    Our event forum threads have amassed over 29,000 views
    Our Facebook page has 469 friends
    On Instagram our event has 196 followers
    Our Twitter feed now has 591 followers
