    New club clothing

    Hi Mark, it is obviously still early days for the new clothing range, as it has only been available since the launch of the new forum. I know there have been a number of purchases already, but outside of the other committee members I can't say who they are. @Matt brown and @DeanRudkin have both bought quite a bit from the range though and I know they are happy with what they received. Will let them say more though.

    S7 Sprint

    Unfortunately the only way to know for sure is if you have the original paperwork, or like with mine, you find the date written on a part somewhere (Mine was on the fuel tank). Now, someone far more knowledgeable on the history of robin hood than me will probably correct this, but as far as I recall, the the dolomite version would have been introduced in 1990. The Sierra version I believe came in in 1994, and in between that there was the cortina version. So using some fag packet maths I would say it has to be a 1990 or a 1991.

  5. Hi Stuart,

    my flying club has decided to stop producing plastic membership  cards.

    I reckon this idea is worth considering for us too

      Hi Bob, I know, for the moment at least, we are keen to keep a membership card, we have made some changes though to reduce waste and costs.

      The Civil Setvice club in London which I was a member of gave a plastic credit card sized membership card initially and sent out stickers for the back every year you renewed.

      it presented a high quality front with simple sticker with the membership details on it.

    Haha. Was something I’ve always wanted to do, and didn’t take long.

    Might take you up on that. Haven’t really had time to dive into it yet as a lot of my spare time is being spent learning c# and writing automated test software as part of my cpd for work.

    Glad you like it, reminded me I needed to update that to be the default theme today

    Given we are now in December I have activated, and set to be the default, our Christmas theme for the website, I hope you like it If it is not for you, scroll to the bottom of the page, select “Theme” and you can set pack to the normal default or one of the dark themes and the forum will remember your personal setting. We will also automatically set back to the normal theme after Christmas. Oh and if you are on mobile, be sure to check it out on a computer for the full effect!

    That one is a quick fix until I can sort out the other dark theme to be all dark, rather than just a dark background. Unfortunately there isn’t a standard dark option, and a lot of themes we have to pay for, so that was the best free dark one I could find. Eventually the “dark theme” will just be a dark version of the default theme.

    Sigma RWD conversion

    I can't recommend any company form experience, but a quick search on google and I would say start with these guys - http://www.specialisedengines.co.uk/ - if they cant do it, I would say it is likely they could recommend someone who can. EDIT: See Bob Tuckers post below - Seems this company is best avoided!

    Hants & Dorset Xmas Meal Sunday 2Nd December

    Not sure how but Bob was at 150% of his message limit... @fry61 I have increased the message limit for Area Secretaries a bit so you can continue to receive messages, but if you could have a clear out of some old messages that'd be helpful.
