so i was planing on joinin scikotics. but there is a need for people in my area..so anyone from around Lynchburg.roanoke.Blacksburg. you should look into joining them.
I know the feeling bro. The last three days I think I've met about 10 owners all who have no idea about clubs or anything. Not even the events that Scion sponsors. Honestly it's not our fault or theirs'. I think it has everything to do with the fact that we are a rather small society in a huge area. Getting the word out is one thing but trying to do blanket coverage of areas to get awareness out is what advertising companies make and spend Billions of dollars on. The only thing we can do is just talk to as many people as we can.Sorry to dig up this topic, but it reminds me of going to the movies a few weeks ago. I saw a black tC pull into the parking garage with HID's. When the driver got out, I came up and started talking with them since they noticed my xB. He asked if I knew of any clubs in the NOVA chapter and I almost laughed.
In this day and age of the internet, how are we clubs failing to reach out to interested owners? I googled NOVA scion club, SE was the 3rd hit, Scikotics the 5th, and the official Scion website even lists the clubs in the area. We promote our clubs and Scion events heavily on the Scion sites (Scionlife, club forums, ClubxB, Club-tC, etc.) so where is the communications breakdown? Maybe we need to make news available to the local dealerships, perhaps set up a meet and greet with our non-sponsoring dealerships in the area and just let them know we're here if their customers ask. I'd suggest listing all the local clubs in the area, not just your affiliated one, to keep out bias. We all love our Scions, now we just need to get the word out.
