The first, and most important are as follows.
1. Shropshire Suzuki will, from this point onwards, be an internet forum/community.
When started, SS was a local club and resource, as it's expanded, the benefits of becoming a member (primarily, events, and associated insurance) have dropped off. As we now have members all over the UK and worldwide, it was felt that a 'free' forum/community would be more beneficial for most members.
2. SS will be a free resource.
We're still sorting out how to fund the forum in the long term. The likelihood is that we'll offer a donation system, and ask for (modest) donations whenever funds are low. no profit will be made from SS. Any money raised will be used solely for forum costs (server fees etc).
You kind folks that are currently paid-up members have the option of requesting your membership fee back. if you do not request it back, we will use it for future forum costs, with thanks.
More changes will be forthcoming (including that server move...), but our hopes are that we'll create an even more open and friendly place for all us suzuki (and other 4x4) nuts to meet up.
SS is run for you. I'm talking to you, yes you, [you]. we'd like to know what you want from the forum.
Cheers to you all.
