Sporting Fiats Club

I will put my hand up now and say that I may be upsetting some people.

For those that are unaware the Sporting Fiats Club (SFC) is an evolution of the once well respected Fiat Twin Cam Register (FTCR).

Now I'll leave you all to research / dig / etc. the SFC, but as the Fiat Forum is the biggest UK on-line participation stage I'm interested in how many people are also SFC people?

There is some humble intent here. The FTCR was great. The SFC had an initial follow-up (post FTCR) and now today on both Web and Facebook seems to be dwindling.

Being a Fiat / Italian car owner with passion for over 47 years it pains me to see and Italian car club die.

So I'm asking if there are any SFC members here on the FiatForum who think that now is the time to try and integrate the SFC (feelings/ethos/etc) into the Fiat Forum?

Re: Sporting Fiats Club

It would be interesting to know how many SFC (paid up or just web members) actually are here on FF.

If you are an SFC member (paid or web) then do you spend more time and visits here or on SFC?

These are serious questions because:

1) There are many (IMHO) old FTCR/SFC members with sheds load of information, experience, etc. that have dwindled/withdrawn from participating in other sites. At the same time the SFC site does not meet/fulfil their needs as it is all but dead!

2) We can not afford to loose so much "value".

I don't want to get into politics, disputes, etc. but would just say if you are an old FTCR/SFC or current SFC member then please seriously look at:

1) Kick the SFC in the but, HARD and show your displeasure. Some of us have tried but not enough of us!

2) If you are already here on Fiat Forum then please pop your head up and take active participation.

NOTE! I'm not as long term member of the FTCR as just someone else here. I invested a lot of time and effort into the FTCR (as it was) and it really hurts me to see that the SFC is all but dead apart from posts by the current "chair person" who refuses to see, agree, accept that the SFC is not working anymore. I doubt that this will change but the SFC does have a little hope if it were to "incorporate" itself along with the FF.

In my dreams but as they say "there is always hope".

Re: Sporting Fiats Club

Not me.. but I like the sentiment

The FIAT BOO archive is a prime example
