I'd like to get your feedback with regards to having specific social activities for the my-kart club. This has been a topic which I have been advocating for sometime now, and recently gained an impetus after Yusnee and my meeting with Brian Palmer.
One of the things that makes any club successful is its fellowship, networking and family involvement. Brian gave some examples of such practices in other parts of the world. He states that many motorsport clubs in Malaysia hardly organise any race events and worse still do not hold social events. Social events are ways for members to get to know each other and allows them to understand more about the club as well as gives the informal feedback on how to further improve the club's activities and networking opportunities. This also provides outsiders with a chance to get to know more about the club.
I would like to re-activate this initiative, and have a monthly club night. In fact many other clubs have regular teh tarik (TT) nights. I'd like to suggest a monthly club night on say the 3rd tuesday of every month. The aim is for members to get together and have some food & drinks, whilst getting to know each other and their partners & even children. We can also use this my-kart night to bring contacts and people who want to know more about the club.
Please give me your views on -
- monthly club nights
- 3rd Tuesday of the month
- venue - someplace comfortable & accessible via highways (to avoid jams)
