    Ok Guys,

    It's a Friday and as always it's stats day so we know how we are doing

    Our Instagram account has almost 400 followers
    Our Twitter feed has over 600 followers
    Our website is busier than ever
    Our Facebook page is fully subscribed
    Our NEW Facebook group has gained over 500 members in less than a week.
    We have signed up with a new incredible sponsor and I am waiting to hear from another two potential sponsors.

    Neil and Mark have accepted moderator roles on our new Facebook group, helping ensure our group remains a great place to be. Huge thanks to them for this.

    And our incredible event Patron Frank Woodford Mbe has added 'Days Out', and a competition for a VIP weekend at The Waldorf to the growing list of what we can do for our attendees and members.

    And that is all in the last week!

    And we have so much more in progress too with the upcoming annual event, our 10th Anniversary event in 2021, and not just connecting with companies that support our Jaguars, but also companies that depend on Jaguars. We have an incredible couple of years ahead of us, so please stick with us as our event has so much more to achieve for you all.

    Have an incredible Jaguar weekend!

    Very best regards,

    Steve

    Welcome to our 'JaguarForumsUK Great British Day Out for Jaguar Owners' 2020.

    We have been running this event for seven years now, and this will be our ninth event for you guys, and the largest event ever, as we build up to our 2021 10th anniversary event.

    Our Great Day Out is literally a great day out for everyone from petrolheads to families, and consists of a convoy/drive element, as well as our main event. The convoy/drive takes you through glorious Sussex & Surrey countryside, and the main event is at the largest wine estate in England, Denbies! You can meet the clubs & forums that will support you for the life of your Jaguar, specialists that cover almost every aspect of your Jaguar, can attend talks teaching you how to look after your Jaguar even better, enjoy show prices on must-haves, and win prizes and class awards plus meet other Jaguar owners from around the UK and Europe and get to check out Jaguars spanning over 80 years of production!.

    Your registration includes:

    FREE entry on the day
    FREE entry in the Prize Draw on the day
    Guaranteed inclusion in Award Judging (your Jaguar must be onsite for this)
    Option to enter the FREE Christmas competition


    If you need accomodation in order to attend, we have a unique attendee only deal, offering you great fixed price rooms, with guaranteed availability, just minutes from the start point, and if you have travelled some distance and are without your Jaguar we will team you up with a British Jaguar owner that is attending so you still get the full Jaguar experience with us.

    Ok it's Friday and time to bring you up to date with where we are so far with our event, what we are up to and what is to come

    Our forum threads have already received over 4,190 hits
    Our Twitter feed now has 605 followers
    Our Instagram feed 408 followers
    Our new event Facebook group has 558 members
    Our LinkedIn account has 619 friends in the automotive industry
    We have 14 sponsors signed up with us for our next event
    We already have 5 trade stands booked
    We have two club/forum stands booked
    We already have 3 awards sponsored

    In the past week, in order of numbers here are the top five countries accessing our event website in the past week (in top of the pops style.. )

    UK
    USA
    France
    Andorra
    Canada

    I am currently in discussions with one potential sponsor, and have a number of initial enquiries on the go.

    We are running our biggest competition to-date with the chance to win a VIP weekend at the Waldorf, London - full details about this can be found on the Competition page at the event website

    I will be kicking off the Christmas competition, where you can win a great Christmas pressie for your Jaguar to ensure it doesn't miss out, at the end of September

    The event itinerary is already under review so hopefully you can expect to see the changes we are making, in the next few weeks, so you know what to expect.

    A huge thankyou goes out to Mark Lambourne & Neil Blaxill for their increased involvement with our event, helping moderate our Facebook group, and to our event Patron Frank Woodford MBE for offering the incredible VIP weekend at the Hilton as a prize, and hosting the competition. Noting that all monies from the competition go to the RNLI, not the event, helping them in their work.
