The subscription for our membership to the ABVWC has come up for renewal and because it is based on the number of registered members on here, it was quite expensive in comparison to last year's figure. This is because we regard every registered member as being in our club.

The moderators - kiteman, irishman - and I have discussed this and we agreed that we very much wanted to continue membership of the ABVWC but perhaps needed to tailor our requirements more specifically. The major advantage to our ABVWC membership is the public liability insurance cover which we need to enable us to have club pitches at shows. It was agreed that generally, only owners of BraziBays will want to come along to pitch with us at such events. Therefore it is wasteful paying a subscription to the ABVWC for members who won't need to be covered by such insurance. We don't like paying for something when we don't need to, right?!

So, as of today we have a new set of membership categories. We've carried through the aviation analogy as it's a bit of fun and it fits well. The categories - or 'cabins' - are as follows:

1. Flight - the admin and moderation team
2. Business - advertisers on Brazilian VW Bay.com
3. Club - registered members who are Kombi owners
4. Economy - registered members who are on-board but don't yet own a Kombi

The old profile category of 'humour' has been ditched as hardly anyone used it and if you now scan the Members list you'll very quickly see which cabin each registered member falls into. We will now pay the ABVWC for members who are in Flight and Club - saving the Club a reasonable amount of money.

Remember use of the forum and membership is free and we are determined for that to remain so. The financial input from our advertisers, plus you good folks buying stickers, door sill covers etc all helps with covering the costs.

When someone new registers their cabin will automatically set to 'Economy.' If they fill in details of their Kombi, one of the Admin team will upgrade them to 'Club.' Simple as that.

If you think you've been put in the wrong cabin - please let either me or one of the mods know. Further, with immediate effect, new members will have to state what year of registration their Kombi is or state 'none' if they don't own one.

All the best

Tim

So the new cabin groupings have given up the interesting stats that we have 120 Kombi owners on here and 8 business members. That leaves (today) 119 potential future Kombi owners. Will the factory be able to keep up?! Smile

...or potential Kombi renters.... So since they are in 'Economy', I will offer a 10% discount off of the published daily hire price to any members of this forum who would like to hire Tallulah, just PM me to confirm details.

Great idea Tallulah. Hiring a Kombi was one of the best things I ever did. 2 weeks later I bought Max.

We hired a BraziBay last September and Scooby arrived in November Cool
