New Editor for Viking Magazine

#1 Post by djt2912 » Wed Apr 16, 2014 9:37 am

Hello All,

I would like to introduce myself as the new editor of Viking. I met John Batchelor and other club members at Pride of Longbridge and I have agreed to give the editorship a go. Currently, I am acting as a freelance writer and researcher for classic car and aviation museums across the country, notably the BMH at Gaydon and also the RAF Museum. I am a qualified journalist with accreditations with the International News Syndicate. I hope I can live up to the quality established by previous editors of The Vilking!

My car is a 1994 220GSi which I am currently subjecting to a mini resto alongside my 1960s Triumph saloons. I also own a brace of 'bubble' 200s while my wife uses a 400 hatch for work commuting.

My plan is to begin work on a new look edition of the magazine during the Summer with the intention of Autumn publication. After I have had a few more discussions with members, I will announce a proposed format and would invite anyone to send in stories about their restorations, their cars, club meets, driving routes experienced here and overseas or competition driving. Also, if you have had good experiences with particular parts suppliers or garages, then let other members know through the mag!

Please feel free to post any ideas or suggestions on the Forum or you can e mail me directly at darrell94@btinternet.com. Photos are always good. I will upload some PoL pics shortly.

Thanks all!
Darrell Teaves

Welcome aboard we look forward to meeting you, just let the committee know if you want anything and we're get it sorted. I'm sure there will be a few write ups about shows/events we've attend during the summer.
Just as a matter of interest are you a paid up member?

Welcome to the club Darrell. John can you put Darrells username on the form when you send it to Tom so he can be turned blue.

Welcome onboard Darrel, what are your initial thought's regarding the magazine?

If Smithy can turn you plum and set up access to the committee page, you can set out your proposed agenda.

Welcome Darrell! Thanks for taking the Editor role on!

I wrote one or two articles about experiences with my 216i Cabrio here in Malaysia - just seeing if that have been passed on to you. If they are of interest I can send you relevant photos.

Hope to hear from you!

That's my fault - I 'lost' the file but recently found it again, so I'll send it tonight :blushing

Tony, pics would be good to go with the article :)

John - not to worry - I re-edited both articles last night and sent them off so delete the earlier files I sent!

Photos will be sent by end of today.

Regards

Tony
