MWF Vintage Gathering (from 12 noon) 2014
« on: March 05, 2014, 02:43:58 PM »
Recently some members have been very actively sharing their excellent vintage watches online.
The best is to view it in the metal and get tips from these experienced buyers.

Those who are keen to join such a gathering are requested to make known their preferences and also indicate if they are owners of vintages or enthusiasts who do not own any but wish to learn more.
Kindly provide 2 choice of dates and 1 choice of location and 1 choice of either lunch or yumchar and whether owner or enthusiast.

However, I have a suggestion to meet at MWF Shop (Scott Garden, Old Klang Road) but it is not open on Sundays and also provided that the gtg is held between the opening hours of 11am to 7pm.

If we use MWF shop, perhaps we can collect a small amount from each member who intends to turn up,  so that we can cater for some light snacks and drinks. This is of course subject to prior permission from MWF shop. More details can only be provided once we have firm numbers of turnout.
 
Also note that we can only proceed if there are also enough members with vintage watches who turn up with their vintages.

Sound like a good idea Jo but I never been to MWF shop so I don't know how is the surrounding.

I would prefer noon than evening(unless there are ample light at the venue)

Looking good..
we have more owners than enthusiasts meaning there'll be vintages to ogle over.
Keep it coming...

B U M P

Ok, an update on this proposed gathering..

I'm going to edit the poll since there is already a pattern established.
Will be removing those obsolete options with no votes.

Adding in 1 more date option to see if most of you can make it.

LATEST STATUS

4 owners and 4 non owners although there are 10 ppl who voted, so obviously, 2 voters didn't indicate which category they are in or can't decide which they belong to...

Date- 5 votes for April 5.
Only 2 or 3 votes for April 26, May 3, May 10 so I'm dropping all dates apart from April 5 and adding in 1 more choice.

Location- 7 votes for MWF. Some who voted for PJ informed me about 2 issues they are unsure of.
Security of MWF location and whether venue is bright enough to view the watches clearly and for photo taking of the watches).
5 also voted for PJ (MWF is within KL) although we have not decided on a secure venue yet.

Time- Tea Gathering between 2pm-5pm
6 preferred tea i.e after lunch between 2-5pm whereas only 3 chose lunch

Hopefully a few more will join in by the time the polling and registration ends on 21st March

May I request those of you interested to participate and who have voted,  to re-cast your votes 1 last time on the fine tuned choices. Thank you for cooperating..

Jos,

Those weekends are Ching Ming weekends. May be logistical issues. I would love to attend but April 5 is definitely out for me. 29 is still possible.

Regards,
Fong

Regards,
Fong

Given that tyler and llcj are vintage collectors who aredy make up 50% of owner turnout (2 out of 4 owners who have indicated in the poll), we may need to revise the date otherwise we may end up with only 2-3 vintage owners turning up, hence not achieving the sole purpose of a good variety of vintages for discussion.

As such can you both propose a few dates and see if the other owners can also accommodate

Thanks..

Kindly take note that everyone who is keen to join the vintage gtg should post their comments in this thread so that the others who are also considering to join may take the comments into consideration.

Please do not pm me directly as I will then have to condense your comments and to repost.

From the feedback I've received so far, it looks like the Saturdays in end-March and April are not suitable for many of you.
Some are away overseas, some have to go ching ming, some can't make it on alternate Saturdays, etc, etc, etc.

So this is the final proposal and if we still can't come to a common ground, it will be difficult to finalize any more arrangements.

I've put up a few revised dates leaving out those that many of you can't make it on.

For those of you concerned about security, one member has kindly offered to book a place at
Modestos Restaurant , Ground Floor, The Royal Selangor Golf Club , Golf Club Road, off Jalan Tun Razak , Kuala Lumpur

This is provided the turnout is maximum 20 only and full names and MyKad numbers of participants must be provided for registration.
Also the event must be held in early May as the member is out of the country by end of May.

As such please tick your choices accordingly.

The event will be a Tea gathering (not lunch) as most of you have already voted earlier preferring  a time between 2pm-5pm.

Venue & Date is to be determined by majority of votes.

Kindly cooperate to re-submit this FINAL POLL which will close by 15th April for a decision to be arrived at.
I've reset all the votes to zero.

REMINDER

Please vote instead of posting ur comments unless your date/time is not in the choice.
It will be easier for everyone to view the results and know the majority's decision.

You have up to max of 4 votes i.e. up to a choice of 2 dates, 1 place and lastly, either owner or non owner.
I hope this is clear.
If you are ok with all 3 dates, just tick any 2 or follow the majority to-date.
