    Just a very, very quick update for everyone:

    We recently asked for suggestions of improvements and additional features our event could offer you, and have had a few requests which we are looking at now, so please keep an eye on our event over the next few months and you may find it's not just our Christmas competition appearing, but also a few new features, which you will love.

    Recently, we have implemented a few new features that have been requested - our 2020 Gallery for example, which is a great idea and very popular with everyone..

    So, please keep an eye on us as we continue to adapt to what everyone wants of our event, and if you have any ideas or thoughts yourself please just drop an email to me at stephen.sheldon@jaguarforumsUK.com. and if it is something that we can implement, and will be popular, we will

    Hi Guys,

    I know it would be great if, when planning to attend an event you actually knew what you were going to see before you attended - it would give you a chance to plan on which Jaguar owners to make contact with on the day, see how many of your own model of Jaguar are attending and so much more.

    Well, our event now has a 2020 Gallery at the event website, which highlights the Jaguars that are registered for our event and let's you actually see who is attended and with which Jaguars.. It is well worth checking out as we already have some incredible Jaguars signed up for the day.

    We do have a growing number of registered Jaguars on display there, but we are still missing a few... anyone that registers for our event receives an access pass which has a number on it that is unique to you and your Jaguar - could anyone with the following numbers please consider emailing their pass number, model, year and any info you want listed, and a photo of their Jaguar to me at stephen.sheldon@jaguarforumsUK.com. It would be incredible to get everyone there in pictures (you are welcome to blur out number plates if you want) so we can all see the incredible range of Jaguars we have coming..

    The numbers we are missing in the 2020 Gallery are:

    002, 003, 004, 006, 009, 010, 011, 017, 018, 020, 023, 024, 026, 027, & 028

    If you are registered with one of the passes above please consider sending your Jaguars picture in - it would be fantastic if we can get everyone in the gallery.

    Hi Guys,

    It's Friday and it's stat's day! And it has been another busy week for our event

    We have so much going on currently, I need to update you all with.

    Our 2020 Gallery is growing well, and has become one of the most visited pages on our website.. we still need to fill in some of the blanks though, so please email your Jaguars pic into me, if you are registered and haven't done so yet.

    Jaguar owners are steadily signing up, which is fantastic, and of course everyone that signs up before the end of November can enter our free Christmas competition, giving you a chance to win a great Christmas present from Santa for your Jaguar.

    Our Eastwell Manor mini event is this weekend! Those of you signed up for it, I hope you have an incredible time with Frank, our event Patron and I look forward to all the photos appearing online next week.

    Our Monday Mini Quiz - three multiple choice questions about Jaguar trivia popped up Monday morning, with answers being posted after the school run on the same day are proving popular and brighten peoples Monday mornings up replacing blues with Jaguar trivia They are posted in our Facebook group and well worth getting involved with - currently Ionut Shupy has got all three questions right for three weeks in in a row making him our current champion!

    Facebook has been putting up a fight (so to speak) when it comes to uploading support files for you guys, but last night I managed to get some of them up - we have many more to come but uploads only seem to be successful every now and again, so it is taking me a while to get them up.

    Our Twitter feed is becoming far more popular with our tweets being far more retweeted and viewed than ever before.

    Our website had it's busiest night to-date last night with almost 90 visitors - It generally receives between 10 and 40 visitors a day. It's great to see that our event is starting to spark more interest in what we are up to

    Our exclusive attendee only accomodation deal is being made good use of by registered attendees wanting to stay overnight, whether it be because they are travelling some distance, or want to check out the local sights and attractions in the area. It includes, room, breakfast, wi-fi, and parking in a discounted all inclusive rate exclusive to us.

    I have ordered in the high viz vests (just waiting on delivery), so at our next event you will be able to find me, and everyone invoved in running our event on the day easily - I will pop a picture up when I have them, and am currently looking into ways to display the Prize Draw prizes, and awards better on the day along with developing a better backdrop for the award presentation shots.

    Ok, that's the basics of what has been happening this week and here are the current event stat's you have been patiently waiting for:

    Our forum threads have received almost 9000 hits, which is incredible.
    Our Twitter feed has 613 followers
    Our Instagram feed has 455 followers
    Our Facebook group is growing steadily and now has 674 members
    We have 27 Jaguars already signed up spanning 1994 to-date
    We have 18 confirmed event sponsors, and we are in discussions with other companies too
    8 Trade stands of all sizes have been confirmed so far
    We have 5 awards that have been confirmed for the day

    Everyone, please have an incredible and fantastic Jaguar weekend on us and don't forget Monday mornings don't have to be blue now they are quiz mornings

    Very best regards, Steve

    OK guys,

    A mini update for you - our events 2020 Gallery is growing fast, and you can now see pictures, and the basic specs, of most of the Jaguars that are already signed up with us for our next event, allowing you to see what you will see on the day, before the day

    We have a brand new competition running, in support of the RNLI, with no income to our event, that gives you the chance at a VIP day out on a Fly n Dine experience, hosted by our event Patron Frank Woodford MBE. It includes helicopter flight to Eastwell Manor, a personal tour of the Manor, lunch, and flight back - an incredible prize.

    We have a new event logo(s) in development, to replace our current logo that I put together for us a while ago. Unlike my artistry, the new logo(s) are very polished.. (yes, I know what you're going to say... not difficult to beat my artwork lol).. but these logo(s) are great and we are looking forward to working further with this company into the future. Full details to follow shortly.

    Additionally, if you register for our next event before the end of November you can enter our free annual Christmas competition for a chance at an incredible present from Santa for your Jaguar, to make sure your pride & joy doesn't miss out on Christmas

    We may be a grassroots event, not-for-profit, and supporting the RNLI (with talks with the Rotary Club in progress) but our event manages to offer you great mini intimate events through the year, a rapidly developing event website, a very active Facebook group you can join, a Jaguar trivia quiz every Monday, competitions and draws, and a big annual event every May.. allowing you to connect with the incredible Jaguar network out there, have a great day out with our annual big event, and support charities at the same time! So why not give us a go?

    Very best regards,
    Steve

    Another mini update for everyone - our event is changing (yep it is a mini update not a huge one honest)!

    Chris Pethick of Banana Creative has reworked our event logo(s) and we now have a whole new look for you.

    A huge Thankyou to him for his incredible work, and please bear with us whilst we implement the updated graphics across all our channels

    Our mini event at Eastwell Manor last weekend, hosted by our event Patron, Frank Woodford MBE was a great success. It was a small intimate event with just 10 available slots and Frank arriving by helicopter There will be another mini event coming soon - so please keep an eye out for it appearing online. Our mini events are really well worth attending.

    We launched a new draw online, supporting the RNLI - a Fly n Drive Experience. All monies from this draw go to the RNLI, and you will have an incredible experience being flown by helicopter to Eastwell Manor, for a guided tour and lunch before being flown back.. full information can be found in our Facebook group - again really well worth entering.

    We are still running the incredible VIP Weekend at the Waldorf draw, again with all monies going to the RNLI. It has a value of up to £955, and even includes heated underground parking for your Jaguar. Please consider entering it, as you are in with a great chance at the prize and you are helping the RNLI at the same time.

    The clock is ticking regarding Registrations for our next event - if you want to register for our next annual event (the biggest event we have ever run for you Guys) AND be able to enter our Christmas competition for a chance to win a great Christmas present from Santa for your Jaguar you need to register before the end of November! If you register after the end of November you will miss out on our great Christmas competition. Full registration info is on our website at www.jaguarforumsuk.com under the tab 'Register Here'.

    We are really happy to be able to announce that Chris Pethick of 'Banana Creative' has joined the team here, and as a consequence we already have our new logo's. A massive Thankyou to him for his work on making this happen for us.

    We have two shiny new logos! Chris has designed two incredible new logos which you may have noted we have rolled out across our event website, Facebook page and group, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Our new logo makes it easy to recognise us, and all the signage at our 2020 event will have the new logos on them making it easy to find us on the day.

    Visibility of event officials was an issue in previous years, with attendees sometimes having issues tracking myself or anyone else helping organise the event - this year we will all have high Vis Vests with 'JaguarForumsUK' on the back, making us easy to spot wherever we may be on the day.

    I have requested quotes for our new signage for our next event, with our new logos and am waiting for them to come in. The roundabout entrance to the main event will be clearly signposted, along with the route in, and where we have had an organiser table in previous years we are planning on an organisers tent, with almost double the table area for everything..

    Here are the statistics for this week, so you can see where we are with things:

    Our forum threads have amassed over 9,600 hits
    Our Twitter feed has 612 followers
    Our Instagram feed has 467 followers
    Our Event Facebook Page has 49589 friends
    Our Facebook Group has 685 members
    We have 18 sponsors confirmed to-date
    We have 8 Trade stands confirmed so far
    We have 3 club/forum stands/allocations confirmed
    We have 1 Talk by The Pro session booked so far
    We have 5 confirmed awards
    And 30 Jaguars signed up so far spanning from 1994 - date

    Have a fantastic weekend, and remember to register for our next event soon, if you want to be able to enter our Christmas competition
