JNS Forum World Tour 2018 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Martijn Meerts

We have a small container car with the JNS Forum logo on it, that members have been sending to each other to take picture of and run on their layouts for a bit. So it's been going all over the world. Although, it's on hold for now due to the virus and fear of it getting lost in the mail. I currently have it sitting on my storage yard.

Pretty sure that's possible. Paul (the original poster of this thread) is mostly taking care of the project, so he'll have more details. Right now I still have the car, I was about to send it over to / visit the next person in line when the whole virus thing started happening.

 

I'm not sure when it'll be started up again, but either way, I guess we can continue sending it to people if and when people are interested. Not even sure it was ever determined what would happen with the car once everyone's had it, I was extremely busy with work when it was all planned 🙂

Hi Gents,

hope every one is safe and well👍👍😀

when I discussed it at the very start with Jeff I think one idea we had was that we could perhaps auction it off and the money donated to a children’s charity,nothing was set in stone and it was only one suggestion,so the answer to that question would be to say nothing definite has been decided as to what will happen to it.

Any suggestions or ideas would be welcomed though gents👍👍😀

I think for now there‘s still a few people interested in receiving it after the pandemic so I guess we should continue the journey of it a little longer 😄

You mean auctioning the JNS forum wagon to a member? That may depend on the charity in question

Auction would be for whoever wanted to bid with the understanding of the charity that would receive the funds. Costs and efforts to make the car were from mostly Paul and it should be him to make the decision on that and then decision on if individual members would want to bid with the resulting win funds going to that charity is up to them.

 

it may be better to start a new 2020 one here to get a new circuit to pick up new interested members once international shipping is going better. And do the new loop with new participants who didn’t get in 2019 getting priority. But it may be a while before we do this as I doubt inexpensive shipping options will come back quickly here.

 

the 2019 got a pretty good run with those that were on the initial interest list, so maybe time to retire it and do the 2020.

 

these projects require a whole host of folks to make happen and at times things happen to slow things up. We also were trying to sequence the shipping around the world to reduce shipping costs and potential customs issues.

 

ill probably post the 2019 decal file up here so folks can also make their own containers if they want by printing decals (we sent a bunch along so each participant would have a set to make a pair of containers).

 

cheers

Morning gents,

I would imagine it would be a member as as far as I m aware we re the only ones who know about it.

As for the charity,I m hoping that would be decided between ourselves when the time comes but I m guessing that could be a while yet.

no point doing it now because we don’t know how long that’s going to be.

Hi buddy,

all too often these things get started and fall by the wayside.

The car has been half way around the world and it would be a shame for that to happen.

The decision to suspend its travels during these dificult times was made purely to protect it from getting lost.

We all know how good and special this forum is(take a look at some others if you do nt believe me😂😂) what we are doing is not a new idea,but I wonder just how many of these projects actually get completed.

I give you all my word that I will do my upmost to make sure we see this through. It ll be quite an achievement everyone👍😀

Hi Jeff,

that’s a great idea mate but can I make a suggestion please😂?

Given the current world situation and the uncertainty of when the car resumes it’s travels I ve a feeling this could well run into 2021!😂😂

 

why not hold off on the decal till it actually finishes and print accordingly here for people to print their own off.

it s looking like it’s going to be World tour 2018-2021.

just a thought marte👍😀
