COVID-19 - Effect on S2KUK

The Club Committee have been carefully following developments along with Government and WHO advice, to understand the impact it may have on the Club and our activities.  We take the safety of our members and their health very seriously. 

You may already have seen and heard about a number of car related events being cancelled, and we are working with various organisers of events to deal with those which we were going to attend as a club.

The Committee have discussed our position with regard to club organised and attended meets and events and have come to the unfortunate decision, in the interests of health and in line with government advice, we are going to cancel all meets and events through to the end of April.  This includes monthly pub meetings, shows and driving events.  We have also taken the decision to postpone Megameet 19 at the beginning of May - all attendees have been informed of their options.

We are keeping close to the situation and all event organisations we work with and will maintain a 'watching brief' beyond this date.

You will see these events being cancelled through our usual channels; google calendar, facebook and S2KI forums.  For those you have purchased tickets for via the various event organisations, please contact them directly regarding their refund polcies.

So if you are feeling at a loss of what to do, need a break from self-isolation, working from home, or a rest from one of the many services working hard during the situation, head over to our members only facebook group where we hope to keep lots of dialogue going and some fun and interesting things to do!

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Ian, Sue, Colin, Sophie & Steve
Your S2KUK Club Committee

🚨 S2KUK Coronavirus Update 🚨

The S2KUK committee are working hard to keep up to date with the latest situation with regard to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and the effect it may have on events we are organising or attending.  As we get any news on affected activities we will update our members via our website, email and social media channels. Our primary objective is that our members remain safe and that we are compliant with any UK Government guidelines.

For those attending Megameet 19 with us, we are working on contingency plans should any action be required and we hope to have an update to you directly via email in the next few days with our plan.  

Thanks

Ian, Sue, Colin, Sophie, Steve

Your S2KUK Committee

Website Maintenance

You may have noticed poor performance on our website (especially at peak times).  We apologise for this!

We have decided to move our website hosting as a result, and this will be done on Wednesday 11th March.  You may notice some downtime, as the new host propogates, but we hope most people will have very little.

📸 2020 Calendar Competition - DEADLINE EXTENDED

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SAT 5TH OCTOBER 23:59

We will be producing another S2KUK Calendar for 2020, so get your best picture of the season out and, submit your photo entry by email!  

Please READ and FOLLOW the rules and instructions below ESPECIALLY the ones in red!  (You would not beleive how many people do not send a suitably sized file or haven't named it properly!! PLEASE HELP US! Laughing)

 

RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS

We all want to see great shots of the S2000, so we have 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 AT LEAST 4-5 MB in size or more.
  • ONE ENTRY ONLY per person (so choose wisely) You may if you wish supercede your entry as many times as you want.
  • The photo could have been taken BY YOU any time.
  • 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.
  • Images must be work and family safe.

How to make a submission:

  • When you have a photo to submit, rename it with the following format:  "Real_Name.jpg" (YOUR ACTUAL NAME not  Real_Name.jpg! YES people do this!!)
  • 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 5th OCTOBER 2019 at 23:59 Submissions will then be put on the S2KUK website for voting.

Submissions MUST be EMAILED and THE MIN SIZE and NAMED PROPERLY.   If they are not emailed, they are not entered.

TIPS

  • Photos shouldn'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. 

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.

We've updated our Privacy Policy

Boring but essential!  Here it is if you want some bedtime reading!

Website Email Issues Fixed

We recently discovered we had a problem with site generated emails getting through to people using certain email domains - this may have been a problem for quite a while!   It means people may not have been able to retrieve passwords, not got emails when joining, posting or enquiring about a classified ad, etc.

The problem has now been fixed, so if you have forgotten your password, or have just been missing our emails in general, we're please to say it should now be OK!  Please let us know (incomeing email is all OK!) if you do have any problems.

Apologies for any inconvenience!
