Club GTI Newsletter for August 2014

Dear Members,

July was a show-packed month, and for once, the weather held out for all of it! Let’s pray it can continue into August as it’s shaping up to be another busy month with show, track and even rolling-road events. With Club GTI celebrating its 27th birthday and a successful GTI International for 2014, everyone is on a high and looking forward to August.

VW Festival, VW Action and our own Club GTI rolling-road day at one of our sponsors and supporters Badger 5, to name a few, will be the highlights of the month. If you haven’t already done so, please head over to the relevant forum threads to lend a hand, or to sign up to put your car on the Club GTI stand.

It’s also a good time to remind you of our September Curborough event to take place on Sunday 7th Sept. This is a fantastic day for everyone so make sure you head over to…l-you-be-there! and see what everyone is saying. A report on this event will be up next month on the front page; please keep an eye out for it.

Lastly, a reminder to check out our social network links. We have integrated facebook into the forum now so you can ‘like’ away (please no farmville requests!). Or if you are a Twitter fan then follow us on the link at the bottom of the page.

Have a great August!
