Latest News - From the UK S2000 Owners Club

2015 S2KUK Calendar Competition - ENTER NOW!

We will be producing another S2KUK Calendar this year, so now it is time to start getting your pictures or cameras out, and to submit your photo entries!  Please see below for rules and instructions - ESPECIALLY the first one!

RULES AND REGULATIONS

We all want to see great shots of the S2000, so we have high standards for submissions.

  • Photos need to meet a minimum resolution for print purposes. That minimum is "high resolution" - at least 150 dpi, in tif, png, jpg formats. As a guide, photos should generally be 3-4 MB or more
  • You CAN obscure license plates if you wish
  • Photos need to be cropped "loose" this is to avoid having some great submissions that we can’t use because the image was already cropped too tight to the S2000.
  • Try and leave some space around the S2000 so the image can be cropped to fit the calendar. 
  • No watermarks allowed.
  • NO NUDITY - images must be work and family safe.
  • If there is enough demand for hot ladies (or men!) posing we may do a short run of an alternative calendar.
  • ONE ENTRY ONLY per person (so choose wisely) You may if you wish supercede your entry as many times as you want

TIPS

  • Photos can't just be "driveway" shots, no hose and bucket in the background. You need to be creative, artistic, and unique! At least find a scenic spot to take the pic!
  • Lots of people take the ubiquitous 1/4 front or 1/4 rear view, and we can only have so many similar poses in a calendar, so taking the time to do something different and interesting will count toward the submissions
  • The calendar is not for profit, and stresses the love we have for our cars. 

How to make a submission

  • When you have a photo to submit, rename it with the following format:  "Real_Name.jpg" (YOUR NAME not actually Real_Name.jpg!)
  • Email them to: calendar@s2kuk.com
  • Photos have to be emailed for entry. This is your tacit consent that they can be used in the calendar, and on the S2KUK website.
  • Submissions not following the criteria above will be rejected without notice so please follow the instructions! 

Submission deadline will be October 5th 2014 at 23:59

Submissions will then be put on the S2KUK website for voting.

Remember, submissions need to be EMAILED.  

If they are not emailed, they are not entered.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COPYRIGHT

By entering this calendar competition you are giving licence to S2KUK (UK S2000 Owners Club) to use your image for publication in the calendar and on the S2KUK website.  

IF YOU DO NOT OWN COPYRIGHT of the image - that is if YOU did not take the photograph it will not qualify for the competition. 

DO NOT ENTER WITH A PHOTO YOU DID NOT TAKE, as it can have serious consequences if it is published. 

By entering a photo to the competition you are agreeing to indemnify UK S2000 Owners Club against any action regarding copyright should you have entered a photo of which you do not own copyright.

Committee Vacancies

  We have 2 vacancies on the Club Committee of S2KUK.

Following announcements at the AGM we have 2 positions on the Club Committee, we have some interest but as not all members were at the AGM we have to open it up to everyone and follow the process of election as set out in the Club Constitution. 

We will take nominations (some were given at the AGM), if you would like to put yourself forward:

You will need to propose yourself and have someone to second you, both you and your seconder must be paid up Club members.  Once nominations are in there will be a members' vote on the candidates to decide who takes the positions.


Treasurer

After 10 years service to the club and being a founding member, Ade has decided it is time to hand over the baton to someone with more day to day involvement in the club.  We would like to thank Ade for his hard work keeping the accounts in shape.

Key responsibility is financial control, keeping accounts up to date and filing in line with legal requirements. 

Honda/Dealer/Discounts Co-ordinator

This will involve engaging with Honda (UK) on various subjects, recruitment of dealers and suppliers to the discount scheme, and keeping the discounts up to date.  


Interested?

If you'd like to put yourself forward for either of these roles, you will need to propose yourself, and you will also need someone to second you.  Once all proposals are in, appointment would be by a club members' vote.  You can do this by emailing via the Contact Form using the Contact Committee option from the drop down menu.

Both roles are voluntary and will take up a little of your own time, however it will not be onerous.


Other help

We are also keen to have more regional event organisers.  To volunteer please also email via the Contact Form using the Contact Committee option from the drop down menu.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss, one of the committee will be happy to help, please just get in touch!

Thanks to all the friends of Ian Sunley

Here is a lovely picture and message received from Nicola Sunley following the tragic death of her husband Ian Sunley in December.

Following Ian’s death in December, I wanted to personally thank all those who donated to the charities that I chose in remembrance.  I was very touched that the club did this in his honour.  The club and members were a big part of our lives for the last couple of years.  Ian was fanatical about driving and wasted no time in planning all the events he wanted to go to. So for the last couple of years, we attended many events up and down the country and thoroughly enjoyed the events and the company we found ourselves in.   Many of you know that Ian was diagnosed with heart disease in the early summer of last year, he was awaiting a triple, possibly quadruple bypass. This was hard news to take considering he had been an active and well man for many years.  This meant that he had to slow down, take medication and wait for an operation.  During this time he took things a little easier and attended all the events and weekends away that he could. He even went down to the Druids run without me – I was not up for the early start, but Ian returned smiling from ear to ear, complete with a burnt face from the sun that day (or was it from the wind, I cannot remember).

When Ian’s dad had a heart attack 10 years ago, and underwent a triple bypass in his 60th year, Ian made a decision that we were not going to wait until we retire before we start and see the world and this is one thing that makes it a little easier to bear.  We had a wonderful life together, were blessed with three wonderful children and for the last 10 years have made an effort to enjoy life and see some of the amazing countries and sites there are to see.   I have many memories of Ian and the years we shared together.  I’m sure many of you have your own memories of him, I expect most of these include Belgium beer! Ian was a kind man who would do anything for anyone and would think nothing of going out of his way to help out.  He loved to burn the candle at both ends and enjoyed the driving and social aspects of the club.

I would like to thank all those who donated for Cancer Research, Help for Heroes and the British Heart Foundation. The club raised £637.50. I am amazed and touched by your generosity along with all the kind messages received.  I hope to meet some of you again soon. Enjoy your S2000, I know Ian did.

Nicola Sunley

Tragic Loss of a Very Special S2KUK Member - Updated

It is with heavy hearts, shock and sadness that we hear about the death of a dear friend from the S2000 community.

Ian Sunley tragically lost his life on Thursday afternoon.  He was a lovely man, always happy, smiling, having fun, he was a very enthusiastic member of the club and was the life and soul of the party.  It was only last weekend that many of us were blessed to have him and Nicola in our company at the annual S2KUK Christmas party.

RIP Ian, you were a true gentleman.  All our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Nicola, their children and the rest of Ian's family and friends at this very sad time. 

UPDATE:

Ian's funeral will take place at Sherwood Forest Crematorium, New Ollerton NG22 0DY on 27th December at 12 noon, then afterwards at White Lion Pub, West Street, Retford DN22 6ES.

The club is accepting donations towards the nominated charities; Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes and British Heart foundation via the donation button below.
