Ian,my Drott website is at www.internationaldrottclub.webs.com
There must be in excess of 2500 machines of all types in Ex Cat club ownership.I do not take a lot of notice of the counters as I get a lot of emails and phonecalls.
David Wills has drafted a letter to be sent to UK members.Have not had a chance to read it yet.
Getting a fait bit of backing from the US Acmoc boys who are also not satisfied with the magazine and Presedente Sobell.
Just see what happens.I get the feeling that GWH is sympathetic to our cause.The new club would be not linked to ACMOC USA but we may get some support from UK CAT dealership as we have a good relationship with them.

Just a note to ACMOC members as was. You will be getting a letter from our chairman David Wills shortly.
A new club looks like being formed,the club will be formally launched at Tractor World Malvern show in March 2010.The AGM looks like it will be held at S E Davies and Sons Astwod Bank.( very big collection there of all types of plant).
A very warm welcome will be given to old and new members.
Existing members,please could you get your subscriptions into John Gaunt as soon as you can.Thanks
Looking forward to meeting up at events next year.
Martyn

Here is an application form for The Link Club (formerly ACMOC Chapter 2).

We would be delighted to welcome anyone who shares our interest in preserving old machinery for future generations to enjoy.

We publish the Link magazine four times a year which has 24 pages, 16 in full colour and is A4 in size.

As well as our magazine, our members organise working events around the UK, currently we have a programme of 14 events in our calendar for 2010 !

Martyn, I have no problem at all with this thread, but I dont want CMN getting involved in the ACMOC-"fight".

Hi Holger ,I do know how to click on to Thumbnails ,I ain't that dumb .What is was getting at was there had been a reasonable number looked at the thread ,BUT the counter on the photos said zero .I looked at a couple of photos ,and yes by clicking on to them,when i clicked back off the counter still registered zero . That is when I put my post up . I have the same trouble with view all new posts. I come on atleast twice a day to have a look but a lot of new posts don't appear on there for some reason. NOT having a go at you ,but just drawing your attension to problems i have found . ian.
