All:

This weekend I was elected Membership Chairman of the Shenandoah Valley British Car Club.

One of the things I want to make an effort to achieve is recruiting young members as most of our members are 50+.

I would appreciate any suggestions from the forum membership.

Thanks,

Larry Gray

I have found that the best way to get young people involved is include them in events where they get to ride in the cars. Take them along on a rallye and let them be the navigator so they can be involved. We used to run poker rallyes and time/speed/distance where we were given clues and a map. The kids had a blast looking at the map and helping locate the clues to tell us where to turn. after that you can get them involved with things like tune ups etc. Let them turn the wrench. Next thing you know,they'll be hooked like us. My Nephew is a pretty good mechanic and regularly helps me with my car, and it all started with me giving him rides. I taught him how to drive a standard gearbox with my TR6 and I know he will look after it when I'm gone.
