Rotary Owners Count

This would maybe give the Club some idea of future Events to run.
Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself...
But i can always do with some help now due to, my advancing years!

I guess the poll results so far explain why I haven't seen another FC on the road for some years :)

But surely amongst our membership there must be more than 4 runners...!  If I've worked it out correctly from the DVLA figures for 2015, there were 35 NA's and 61 Turbo's licenced at the time.  I'm sure those numbers have dropped a bit and probably included some cars that were not actually runners.  Even so I was expecting around 60 or so, and maybe 50% of those being club members?

I think it would be good to get a better picture of how many are still in use, so come on those who have not yet responded.

Cheers
Ken

The poll begs a few questions doesn't it? While you are at it how about widening the scope to honour the intent?

FB-RX7?  I don't suppose there are that many on here for one reason or another but as I read it there are at least two in Colchester  :D
FE-RX8?  Probably more of these than the above - at least one in Colchester :D
You might also add a button for 'other' otherwise there are things like the yellow peril that won't get counted. 

More complicated but providing a more complete picture. 

Now, if you can just work out how to show multiple ownership by fleet operators....see notes re Colchester above!
Can you add a "Comments" box to allow people to add 1xFD + 1xRX8 or something similar? (I would do it but 1.Can't and 2.Am no longer a qualified voter)   ::)

Not sure we can gain much from the FB/FD/FE poll here as owners may not all be looking at the 2nd Gen thread (much as I very rarely look at anything other than FC related stuff).  If the poll is to cover all models then it really needs to be moved outside of the 2nd gen section.  Either that or a poll in each model specific section - doing that would also overcome the multiple owners issue.

Looks like Colchester is the place to be!  As far as I know there are only 3 road going RX7's (1 of each model) in the entire county here!

The poll only allowed one choice, so I went FC, but I also have a running FB.

By the way, I couldn't see the poll on tapatalk, so had to look via the webpage to find it!

Poll was intended for just a general count of running members cars, and model. yes have asked for Poll to be moved, my error:)
