    Hi Guys,

    A lot is currently in progress with our event - our RNLI draw for a VIP weekend at the Hilton, worth over £900 is almost finished - you just have until the 5th November to enter it, if you haven't already. ALL monies from this draw go to the RNLI.

    Our next day out event, in March next year, has already been fully subscribed! Incredible

    Plus, as you know, our weekly Monday quizzes are getting more entries each week.. there is no prize for winning by answering all three questions correctly, but you do get a less blue & more Jaguar orientated Monday *and* you get listed as one of most knowledgeable attendees

    Our 2020 gallery is doing well, but we do still have a few gaps.. if you have one of the following Access Pass numbers could you please email your Jaguars picture in, along with your pass number and a few details about your pride and joy and I'll get it popped up there for you..

    002, 004, 006, 009, 010, 012, 017, 027, 028, 029, 032, 034, 035, 036. 037

    If you your Access Pass is one of the above, please get in touch.. stephen.sheldon@jaguarforumsuk.com

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry our weekly stats update is a bit later today, but so much has been going on at this end I am somewhat behind schedule

    Our 2020 Gallery at our event website www.jaguarforumsuk.com is growing rapidly, and is well worth checking out so you can see what Jaguars you will be meeting on the day - a first for us, and I believe a unique feature for our event.

    We have just started listing attendees on the event website - take a look under the 2020 Event tab and you can find everything there

    Registrations have been coming in steadily - don't forget you need to register before the end of November 2019 if you want to be in with a chance in our annual Christmas competition.

    Our event now has forum threads, Instagram and Twitter feeds, it's website, an active Facebook group, and now rather than using my personal profile page on Facebook has it's own organisation Facebook page you can visit, leave reviews, connect with the group from and more.

    I have been working on our Instagram & Twitter feeds this week to raise our profile there this week, and next week will be in contact with our incredible event sponsors to see what prizes will be available in our Christmas competition

    As you now know Frank Woodford MBE, our events Patron will be attending by helicopter, with photo opportunities and more - full details of his timings will be publicised shortly so you can make sure you are around for his entrance - again another first for our event.

    I am also currently in talks with two potential sponsors, who I am hoping will come onboard with us next week..

    So, a lot going on currently

    Here are the weekly stats for you so you can see how we are doing:

    Our forum threads have recieved almost 11,500 hits so far
    Our Twitter feed has 618 followers
    Our Instagram feed has 479 followers
    We have 39 Jaguars booked and 63 attendees
    We have 2 club allocations confirmed so far
    We have 3 Club/forum stands
    We have 8 specialist trade stands
    We have 18 sponsors confirmed and other enquiries ongoing
    We have 5 awards confirmed so far..

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our Friday stats, keeping you in touch with what we are doing, and how we are getting on with things.

    It has been quite a busy week for the event with Frank Woodfords incredible VIP Weekend at the Waldorf draw for the RNLI closing, our annual Chistmas competition getting ready for it's launch at the end of this month, more Jaguars than ever registered for our next event, discussions with more potential event sponsors, and now promoting our supported charity, the RNLI, through our events' forum threads.

    Time is running out to register for our next event, if you want to be included in our annual Christmas competition - we already have Scratchshield & Robornes supporting it, and everyone that has registered for our next event by the end of November will be in with a good chance of a great prsent from Santa for their Jaguar, delivered in time for the big day.

    I know that everyone struggled with our weekly quiz this Monday, and we just had one person manage to answer all three questions correctly so to make our next quiz a little easier for you - please read up on Jaguars activities during the war - some info about Jaguar during the war period can be found on our website www.jaguarforumsuk.com, if that is of any help.

    A massive Thankyou to everyone involved with our event - without you we could not even begin to manage everything we do, whether you be our Patron, Quiz Master, Adviser, Graphics Guru, Sponsor, Supporter, Attendee or Follower - you make our event what it is.. supporting Jaguar owners from all walks of life or financial situation whether their Jaguars are showroom, cherished classics, modern, customised, restored, project or even school run - all equally welcome and viewed equally.

    OK, here are this weeks stats so you can see how we are doing..

    Our forum threads have amasssed over 12,000 hits
    Our Instagram feed now has 506 followers
    Our Twitter feed has 619 followers
    Our new event Facebook page has 4573 friends
    Our Facebook group has 723 members
    We have 18 confirmed sponsors
    We have 8 Trade stands signed up so far
    We also have 3 Club/Forum stands confirmed
    We have 2 Club allocations reserved so far
    We have 5 awards sponsored so far
    We already have 39 Jaguars and 63 attendees registered for the event
    The Jaguars registered so far are already spanning from 1972 to 2018

    We are on schedule for our largest ever event, offering you a convoy/drive element plus main event, specialist advice and talks on site, some work being performed on site too (details to follow), class awards, a prize draw you are automatically entered in, photo opportunities with our event Patron and helicopter, discounted food/drink to ensure you don't go hungry, plus of-course must have items and services at show prices.

    if you are travelling internationally without your Jaguar we can team you up with a British Jaguar owner that is attending, and if you need accomodation we have set up a special deal for event attendees at a hotel just four minutes drive from the start point with fixed price rooms including wifi, parking, and express breakfast so you don't have any surprises, *and* we know this hotel well, we have been using them for some years now so you are guaranteed a good nights sleep

    I hope everyone has a fantastic Jaguar weekend, and if you enjoy our weekly Jaguar Trivia Quizes I recommend reading up on Jaguars wartime work
