I know what you mean Jas but if you remember it was originally taken down for supposed improvements but I think the guy that was running it got fed up with it and instead of handing it back to Thrasher, he wanted to kill it.

I admit that it was offline for so long that most of the membership fell away and went elsewhere, I personally come on the site at least twice a day but I don't own a 4x4 anymore so I cant contribute first hand.

We do still have monthly meetings locally and a few of the die-hards still show up and it would be good to organise more local meets around the country again.

I think that in general the off-roading scene has declined so much though and formerly eager people have done something else due to costs and family commitments.

Personally I don't want to see the demise of the club, I have had many hours of fun and met some really interesting people through it.

It is still a resource - so no, it won't be put down!

Sorry I didn't speak up earlier, I was in the pub with Timmy.

I think most on line forums have suffered, like most of my students it's all about instant contact via an array of social media.  There are still a significant number however who stay in touch and enjoy the sense of belonging, albeit to a very quiet club.  At the moment.

to be honest i come on at least twice a month but i never see anyone posting anything. I believe this is the first post this year which is bad considering we already pass half way though the year. iv just recently moved from milton keynes to Northampton so i am looking for a club to join so i can go do some green laning in a good sized group. will people from here be going to the billing offroad shows this year?????
