|Hello Scooby Nation
Welcome to the new format news letter. An online and interactive format will make linking to events, photos and any other info much easier. It will also make it easier to access from any medium or device. If anybody has issues accessing the newsletter or any of the links, let me know and we’ll get it sorted asap.Before I start, it is with great sadness I have to mention the passing of one of our members, Nicolas Jon Spangenberg a.k.a. Scoobysnax. Our condolences to his family and friends, and please if we as Scooby Nation can assist with anything please don’t hesitate to ask.
On to business then. We start with our breakfast run out to Harties which was held in memory of Deon. About 40 cars turned out for the event, and even though the journey there had a few hiccups (which we will sort out), the day turned out to be awesome. With Subaru lovers and friends enjoying the day with a few drinks, a nice braai and laughter, thanks to Gert breaking a ‘stick’ to be used fot the braai, which ended up with half a tree on the ground. Deon’s family joined us on the day as well, and again I want to say our condolences to you and please know you are in our thoughts.
We then had a park-off at Tiger Wheel & Tyre, Gezina which was part of their ‘Sizzeling Saturday’. The day saw 20 cars of Scooby Nation turning up for the event and with us, those beautiful BMW and MX5 of Harry, the turbo Honda’s and Uno turbos they day turned out to be a car lover’s event. A big thanks to Conrad and his team for the invite, the food and drink and hosting us on the day. Everybody from our side enjoyed it.
As ussual we bring good numbers to the Sunday drags at Rock raceway, where it seems like we get new members everytime we attend, and we love it. Rock now also has drags on Wednesday evenings where Scooby Nation also represents in good numbers. If you get the chance to get out there you need to, you won’t be disappointed. Some good old school head-to-head racing which is awesome to watch.
Few of our members took part in the BB Group Track Attack at Zwartkops raceway earlier this month, and even with the weather turning wet and cold the event proceeded with success. The day saw some wicked cars on the track, and once again the Swagon, driven by Hannes decided it doesn’t like it front fender anymore. Luckily the damage was mostly cosmetic and he could keep on competing. We hope the damage is not to much to fix and I’m sure we’ll see the Swagon in good nick again soon.
A big congratulations to PJ and his wife with the birth of their son this month. We wish you all the happiness and joy with your little bundle of joy, and good luck with the little sleep.
Tripple Decker Weekend….What you might ask is that…. It is a weekend away to the Vaal arranged by Zander, which is planned for the weekend of the 5th of November. The weekend will be filled with some awesome driving, good friends and even a surprise gymkhana event. All the details can be found on theevent page on Facebook, or you can contact Zander directly for more info. Note that accomodation is limited so better you act fast to avoid dissapointment.
For those that doesn’t know our friend and fellow member Charl has sponsored us with a branded gazebo. All I can say is it looks awesome, and together with the banners we will surely be noticed at events. A big shout-out to Charl for the sponsorship and may I say, it is awesome to see how passionate our members are about Scooby Nation and the Subaru brand. Have a look out for the gazebo at our next event, it looks stunning.
As some of you might know Jack and his family are going through some trying times w.r.t. his wife’s health. This has prompted Jack to open a small design/print studio to help generate some much needed extra income. They will be able to print t-shirts, caps, mugs, key chains and a whole lot more. So if anybody has printing needs or know of anybody that has, lets support our fellow member. For more info or quotations contact Jack Buys. You can get hold of him via Facebook on the Scooby Nation pages or drop a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put you in touch.
With the website always being updated and enhanced we added a new ‘Classifieds’ section to the website where you can sell any unwanted goods. This means anyone can sell an item or items and anyone can see it and the seller can be contacted directly. Open it here, or go to our website and follow the link from there.
We are also busy with orders for our new caps. Check out Facebook for the designs, which can be customed to your requirements.
