It seems every few months we have these discussions, but then interest dies off rapidly...like the valley is a black hole for Subaru fans...

I know I suck ass at updating the site and replying to emails. After working on computers all day long I hate coming and home and doing it ;-) I am not making excuses, but that is the truth on why it doesn't get updated as much as it should... I will try harder...

This forum is far better than any other website forum for planning events and such, as the userbase in the SWIC is much larger than a club site would be. As Bud said that is why we went this route back in the day.

bugnuts seemed to have nailed it as well. Subaru's are a little different than other cars. Not to pick on Hondas, but the honda club scene on average has younger people involved than the Subaru scene. Different people are looking for different things, some people will never show up to a drive, some will never show up to a BBQ, etc.

If you look around the SWIC there seems to be events quite frequently. In the last month or so Vivid had a big bash, their was an AMP track day, an Auto-X, Trucking nationals, the prescott drive, etc. I think that is a pretty good month. While the "club" didn't plan any of them I think there was a lot of things to do for Subaru guys and girls.

I think a monthly get together would be a good idea. As fun as they are, it is hard to talk to other Subaru fans at race meets and drives. It would be great if we could just pick a day/night every month to have a meet. I know the local DSM guys have a SSS (Second Saturday Sonic meet I think) every month. It would be cool to have something similiar.

Always open to suggestions.

Regards,

Aaron
