Hi all,
 
I thought i'd post up in this section as the North Wales Region doesn't seem to have that much activity? 
 
Even though I’ve been to numerous national events over the years I’ve only just decided to sign up and be a member.
 
I finally went and brought my 2013 981 Cayman last March, being in a family full of Porsche it took me a good 2 years of looking at different forms of Cayman to finally find the one I wanted.
 
I picked it up with 15k miles in March 2017 and put about 5-6k miles until I took it off the road towards the end of last year. I had the major service down just before the end of the year, and cleaned and sealed the whole underside so I’m looking forward for the weather to tidy up.

    I just looked your post again, are you referring to the North Wales Forum being quiet? If so then I totally agree.

    Hi,
     
    I've seen your car about a few times.... Are you based on the road towards Loggerheads? I think I saw it there too. Looks very nice

    Great car and some of the best driving roads in the UK around the EVO triangle. I love it!

    Hi Nick,
     
    Yes, the NWales region does have plenty of events coming up, which we’re hoping to try attend as many as possible.
     
    As you pointed out it’s mainly on the forum and other platforms that it’s abit quite.
     
    I think if the NWales Region had a better social media presence like the neighbouring regions it would help to encourage members to participle more.

    Hi Andy,
    Thank you 😊
    Yeah, we’re based on the far side of Ruthin, so we tend to go through there if we head Chester way.
