November 2016 New Full Members Welcome!
« Reply #25 on: November 07, 2016, 01:00:35 »
Eleven (11) Full Members have joined our mids this month of November (please see there names/handles below).

Should you be a Guest or Associate Member reading this and wondering how you too can join our site as a Full Member for a minimal Membership fee of $30- US simply go to this link —-> sl113.org scroll down to page 2 when our main page opens and click on “Membership” it lists all the Benefits and Steps how to do it. The membership fee when you think about it is less then 0.08 cents per day and returns to you almost in full by way of two (2) great Pagoda World magazines per year (valued each at $11-US plus postage).

Please help me to welcome those new Full Members when you see them in our forum. I purposely show the general location of the member(s), it might just be that the new member resides near your area. :-) Ten of the Members are from the US this month and one is from the UK. This makes it 124 Full Members from the Americas that have joined us so far this year (Garry Marks handles all International New Memberships, I’m just helping out till he returns from a 2 month trip). Garry is now back and will post out the International New Full Members as they join our Group (see his post below).

To this Months New Full Members

Gentlemen, welcome to our SL Pagoda Group. and thank you for your support of our truly International group. I don't like to repeat myself, therefore, time permitting scroll thru the posts above (1 to 24) you will find many useful links to help you manoeuvre around our site.

When you see your name below then your welcoming package has been mailed and you should receive it within 5 to 8 business days for the USA, the International one(s) might just take a bit longer. Your welcoming package includes a welcoming letter from our President, one of our Pagoda World magazines that is now issued twice a year to our Full Members and two windshield stickers of our logo for your car.

Should you wish to add back issues of our Pagoda World (PW) magazines to your collection then check the link below for available issues and ordering steps (Full Members only can order Back Issues). Back issues are only available as long as they last.

I would like to pass on my thanks to Rolf-Dieter who has been looking after my responsibilities for new members for “non Americas” whilst I have been away for two months attending the Euro Tour this year.  I arrived back today after a very long boat ride from UK to Australia.

These are voluntary positions and Rolf Dieter has continued to do his “Americas” new members as well as ones that I would normally do for the rest of the world.

Thanks Rolf-Dieter.

On this note, I believe Rolf Dieter is stepping down at the end of his term as the Membership Administrator for ‘Americas' due to family needs and we will be looking for another volunteer for that position.  Ideally it would/should be someone from USA or Canada to both balance the Board of Pagoda Group but also to be able to continue mailing from USA or Canada.  It is not an overly onerous task but does take a couple of hours a month.  All costs for mailing out are of course reimbursed.

If you think you would like to help in this taks please let me or Ray Hays our President know.

2017 Vacation Trips for Garry Marks and Dieter
« Reply #30 on: June 20, 2017, 19:22:59 »
Dear Members,

I'm posting this note to let New Members know that there will be no postings of our Welcoming Package to New Members during the period of July 3rd to August 2nd 2017. Garry and I will be on holidays during this period.

Garry Marks and myself are embarking on our 2017 vacation trips. Garry already is well on his way going North down under where he will soon find warmer weather :) his plans for returning will be sometime late in August or early September when weather starts to get warmer in Southern Australia.

I will be leaving for my Euro trip on July 3rd and will return August 2nd. it will be my first trip back home in 5 years. My trip will take me to Amsterdam, Enkirch for this years Mosel Tour, ** Düsseldorf, Wien, Stuttgart, Affalterbach to the AMG Engine Plant for a private tour, Frankfurt, ** Berlin and ** Hamburg before returning to Amsterdam for a few more days before returning to Canada. It is a trip that has been waiting to be crossed off my Bucket List :)

I will be looking after Garry's postings of the Welcoming Package to International New Members until he returns from his holiday trip.

I ask that you be pationed in receiving your Welcoming Package if you should join as a Full Member between the period of July 3rd to August 2nd I will post them as soon as I return from my trip to New Members for the Americas and International New Members that joined our Group between the aforementioned period.

Meanwhile Enjoy the Summer and Safe & Happy Pagoda Drives wherever it might take you :)

Best,

Dieter

** I will be visiting the Classic Remise (prior name was Meilenwerk) in Düsseldorf, Berlin und Hamburg (great places to visit where Germans park there toys and have them looked after by mechanics and at the same time give the public a chance to admire them). I will be taking photos of any Pagode/Pagoda I spot and share them in another "Photo" tread later. If you ever find yourself in those three cities or near bei a visit to the Meilenwerk is highly recommended. Just Google "Classic Remose" to learn more about it and see some great cars, not as great as our Pagoda of course :)

EDIT; Added the new name for Meilenwerk now named "Classic Remise" also added 4 photos from my visit to the Düsseldorf Classic Remise (Mielenwerk). I spotted 5 Pagodas at the Classic Remise in Düsseldorf, 1 as seen in photo 3, 3 Pagoda's can be seen in Photo 4 and a black one it is a 280SL (center in Photo 2) I spoke to the owner of the black 280sl as he drove the car in, he told me that he drives this car every day and works at the Classic Remise (nice work if you can get it) :) I will be adding a thread later with more photos in our Photo Forum Area once I get over my jet lag ... Amsterdam ... Paris ... Toronto then driving to London, Ontario totalled a 14 hour trip.

And if some don’t believe Rolf Dieter, here is a photo of my vehicle out side the Birdsville Pun this morning.  Birdsville is about as central in Australia as you can get. Today I drove from there to Mt Isa the nearest big town, a total of 670Km. A fair bit of dirt, but not as bad as the day before that was 700km (420 miles) all dirt and rocky road. And only shredded one tyre yesterday.

Pagoda World Issue 21 arrived in Canada

My new supply of Pagoda World Issue 21 arrived on my desk for distribution to New Full Members that are joining our mids. Our Magazine always contains great technical as well as other great stories. As our Editor mentioned we always can use more stories to use in our magazine now that we issue Pagoda World twice a year (Our early Spring issue and our September issue). So if you have a story about your Pagoda, do send it in to our Editor it might just be published in one of our next Pagoda World issues. Don't worry about grammar or spelling we have many volunteers (including my daughter) that will look after those minor issues. So why not send us your story or something you did yourself on your Pagoda. 

Our September Issue #21 contains amongst other stories three stories about;-

Part 2 of Alfred’s story about our “Horn” with detail photographs.

Al’s story about his “Shatzi’s  (also Part 2) how he made her more perfect.

Robert’s story about “Re-Upholstery for the Do-It-Yourselfer”

I now have PW Issue #10 to #21, someday somehow I like to get hold of Issues #1 to #9 for the contents are truly first class and something each Pagoda Owner should have part of his library.

Some "Back Issues" can always be found in case anyone is interested….

Here ——> https://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?topic=11537.0

You will find "Contents" of our "Back Issues" as carefully prepared by our Member waqas

You truly have joint a very knowledgeable and dedicated Group that shares your interest for the Pagoda we all drive (most of us anyway) so don't be shy to ask questions and do post a photo of your car no matter what condition. We all love photos. Better yet take a moment and interduce yourself in a special thread one of the original founders has set up many years ago. I love that thread it makes for very interesting reading on a rainy day :)

This will be my last post on this thread as a Membership Director for North America. For personal health issues and commitments to my wife as a full-time caregiver, I will not seek re-election to the board. As of December 1st, 2018, Gerry Marks wilL post Welcoming Packages to new Full Members that join our Group. Garry offers to do this until a new Board Member is appointed with this task.

I hope that this thread has helped New Full Members over the past 3 years a bit to get to know or contact Members in their respective areas, Also I tried to point New Full Members in the direction on this site where they could quickly get familiar with the site (with the various links I posted). I don't know if it did help since I only received one thank you note :) 

It has been a pleasure to help out and give back to this site a small token of thanks for the knowledge I gained about my car and being part of this Group.

Thank you,

Rolf-Dieter

Your assistance has been invaluable to me, helping to spread the load and also in your constant assistance and welcoming to new members and others that have contacted us seeking help during your time in the position of Membership Director Americas.


Wishing you a full recovery and look forward to visiting and catching up again next year in my travels.

Thank you, Mike, Garry, Peter, and Ralph,

For your kind comments. I was fortunate to find a good replacement in Hugh Rawling, he lives just slightly 1 mile from where I live. Hugh and I had a nice meeting yesterday and he will carry on where I left off once he is ready to do so. Meanwhile Garry thanks for holding the fort till January 1st for me I do appreciate your help very much.

We will see what the future holds in store, I will probably offer to serve this fine group again when it becomes possible.

Thanks again,

Dieter

Re: Help to Welcome New Full Members that joined in June 2020
« Reply #42 on: April 26, 2020, 17:37:34 »
I originally opened this thread to help New Full Members find other Existing Members within there area for meet and greats, as well as point out some of the excellent help threads that have been included on this site already. Unfortunately, I had to give up my position as Membership Director in December 2018 due to health issues. I am fine now after treatments in 2019 and now only hold a very minor position on the site as Audit Comity Member. It is a position not requiring much of my time so I can continue to add New Full Members here having joined our SL Pagoda Group.

The purpose of this thread is actually three-fold.

It gives existing Members here a chance to welcome New Full Members.

It gives New Full Members the opportunity to find Members within there area where they live.

It helps New Members within the area where they live to organize get-togethers like coffee & cars.

We do have large get-togethers like our PagodaFest in 2018r in San Diego, California. However, smaller get-togethers are also great fun. I know we are living in difficult times right now due to COVID-19 and now one knows how long this new normal we now have to live by will last. It should not stop us to maintain Social Distances for our coffee and cars meet and great get-togethers within the areas where we live.

During our final dinner at PagodaFest, I mentioned that we have an existing program on our site that easily lets you find other Members within the State/Province or Country, you can sort this program by LOCATION then scroll thru the pages to find your State or Country. In the link below you will find a PDF File that provides some step by step pointers for Members that are not too computer literate ....

https://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?topic=30026.msg217495#msg217495

 .... why not give it a try and find out how many Pagoda Members live within your area of residence. Then organize something to arrange a get-together or cars and coffee, it will be great fun even if it is only 3 to 4 Pagodas :-)

Here now are New Full Members that have joined our SL Pagoda Group in 2020, welcome them if you see them in the Forum. If you are a New Full Member to our Group check out some of the helpful links on pages 1 and 2 of this thread. Also, check out the thread below that was established by one of our former Presidents .... if you are a New Member find the time why not tell us how you found your Pagoda or if you are looking for one. The tread provides interesting reading (it has been read nearly 516K times) and allows you to get to know some of our Existing Full Members.

Hello to all of you.

A great welcome to all new members joining us during this f..period of quarantine.
Here in France the atmosphere is so and so. And no way until next Monday to put the car on the road. What I will do for sure. :)
All of you please keep strongly safe, Frederique and I would be so happy to meet you again in the next Event. It will be unforgettable!

Take care.

Long time watching but now joining as my dear wife has given the green light for a W113 Pagoda to join the garage. This has also been her dream car and I'm not going to disagree.

Covid19 is partly responsible for this as you never know what life is going to throw at you so seize the day.

All we need to do is wait for the right car to come along and join an eclectic collection in North West PA.

Welcome Peter and Nicola.


Hope you enjoy the international comrade of the Group. As a past resident of Bucks County and having revisited there last year in my Pagoda, i can appreciate the beautiful countryside around there and the pleasure of driving with the top down.


Totally agree with the “seize the day “ in these very testing times for everyone around the world. I think a lot of people will be having a re-evaluation of their life and it’s future.

Reserved for 2021 ...

I update this thread only for our Members, so they may look into this tread once in a while to see who may have jointed close to where they live. It is a tool for you to contact one another for coffee, exchange information about your cars in a smaller group (3 to 5 cars etc.). We keep saying ...

It's not only about cars it's mainly about People

So check into this topic once in a while (or monthly) to see who might have joined within driving distance where you live, find out what they do with there Pagoda, you make new friends, after all, that is what it's all about.

Completed adding New Full Members that Joined the Pagoda SL Group from January 2019 (when I stopped doing so for health reasons) to YTD
