Establishment of new 7 Clubs
Why a club?
Clubs make a very special contribution to the enjoyment of owning a seven. Whether is on the race circuit, being at an event, touring or just meeting in the local pub its more fun to do this with cars that share the same pedigree and like minded drivers. In addition, you get to know people in clubs that you would otherwise never get to know, and from all parts of the world.
Of course, social media groups also cover many of the demands for communication with others and are often an integral part of a club. Whilst excellent for for communication social media groups are are limited as organising groups for events and it is here that Clubs whether small and local or large and national really flourish.
As an example one of the first clubs for seven owners was created in 1981 - the Lotus Seven Owners Switzerland and they created the "International Seven meeting”. One of the first visitors was David Mirylees, who was so enthusiastic about it that he founded the Lotus 7 Club in the UK shortly afterwards.
Many clubs have formed with a focus on the seven, some are just interested in the Lotus 7, some Lotus 7 and its direct descendant the Caterham, others solely on brothers/sisters of the Lotus 7 ; for example Birkin, MK, GBSC, MK and Westfield, and some are clubs with all the family included. There are also Lotus clubs who have branches of their club which focus on the seven of all types.
We are are a broad family, united by our passion for the car and the fun and friendship that being a member of the family brings.
So no matter how large or small your club idea is we can help you with the years of accumulative experience of members of the network.
Our offer to club founders
The association statutes are the "laws" of an association and must comply with the laws of the respective country. That could sound complicated, but it is not. We help you to draw up the necessary documentation.
Do you need membership fees to finance common things like homepage or merchandising? We can help you to work out a budget with you.
How would you like to communicate with your members? What needs to be considered when it comes to data protection and why WhatsApp alone is not enough. We discuss the sensible channels with you.
Club events are at the heart of every club. And there is a lot to do from the idea to execution including controlling. Our team has decades of experience in organizing small or large events and are happy to support you.
