PostSubject: Just so you know ... I do this for the love   Thu May 15, 2014 6:53 pm

Every now and then I ask myself if people think I run this club/forum for a living.  I don't.  I make no money out of it.  All the advertising and the subs from the Executive Club go straight back into paying our subscription to the ABVWC, promotional items and mainly for paying for kit at the KOMBI Sleepover.

This year, because I want us to have a good party, as payment for the P.A. system and lighting, I have agreed to work a day at Sky for my colleague Paul who supplies the kit, because there isn't enough money in the club account to pay for it.

I'm not looking for your sympathy or anything else.  I just wanted you to know that I am 100% behind keeping you guys informed, meeting up and making the most of your BraziBays.   Basketball

I for one really appreciate what you are doing Tim, and I haven't even managed to catch that elusive aquabay yet! Once I do, I look forward to buying you a drink or three at a club event. drunken

Be assured, Tim, that each and every one of us greatly appreciates the work you do on behalf of all of us. Your integrity is certainly never in question and we know that this isn't a money making venture for you.

Once again thanks for all you efforts and keep up the good work.

M&A.  Very Happy

A good way to support the club is to pay the small fee to join the Executive Club section.
Perhaps a few more members could contribute in this way to ease the situation.

Keep up the good work Tim

Personally speaking I think you could be just a little more unselfish, work two days for him then we could have even more speakers! Smile
On a more serious note I don't think even in my former profession I have met anyone with more integrity than you Boss, and I, like the other members if the admin team know how many hours you put into this forum, and it's a huge credit to you!
Now stop winging and get back to work.

Just to balance this out - love your efforts on the Forum but not sure about your musical taste!  Wink

The forum is like a big supportive family helping everyone to get the best from their kombi.

So should we call you Dad or Pops? Wink

Hi Tim,

I would struggle to keep my Dub on the road without the knowledge support and guidance from you and this forum.

I have not been a very consistent visitor to the forum this last year or so, in fact my Dub only did 5 miles last year but was MOT’d yesterday cheers  Anyway, the Executive Lounge completely passed me by (thanks for prompt osg) so you will have a new member very shortly.

I would also suggest to those infrequent visitors like me who have not contributed a lot back to the forum lately, but get valuable advice when they need it, that the Exec club is a small price to pay!

Thanks for all the hard work Tim it’s much appreciated.
Cheers K.

Thanks also from us Tim. Raising the profile of our kombi's and giving freely so much time and effort for us all is much appreciated.
Along with many I'm always looking through the search facility for answers, this forum is a mine of information! So also a BIG thank you to all that post.  Very Happy  Like a Star @ heaven

I certainly appreciate all your efforts. Running and moderating a forum is never easy. It is a mine of information, and there is lots of encouragement for those like myself who have little idea what they are doing most of the time. I can't imagine anyone doubts your integrity.
No idea what you are talking about, but I drink goats milk.
