This group has been in decline ever since these changes were made and the club was disbanded. When we were a actual club our first meet rounded up 20-25 cars.... this season there was about 6 that showed up for the cookout.

I've never been in or run a club so I really don't have a frame of reference.
First and foremost, I think we need to decide what we are. There's not a lot of point in debating and opening a discussion if we're just content being just a website. If we want to be a legit club, we're going to need to have some kind of structure and we'll have to live with the fact that we'll never generate the interest we want to. If we do decide to put in some structure, I think we need the right people in place who's priorities are going to be growing the club, maintaining a suitable image, and helping us drive forward. Also, what do we have to offer? Common interest? Member benefits? etc.
Once we know who we are and what we have to offer, I would love to see a more unified presence at shows, even if it's just regionally. I realize we're rather dispersed and we have a number of cars that aren't road-ready, but I don't see us generating a lot of interest without having the visibility that comes with showing as a group.
Merchandise! Flyers, some cards both would be good to have with a unified presence and to post in parts shops and whatnot. The site also needs a front page and a face lift; posting events on the front page, etc. Public notices, etc. T-shirts, hats, calendars, stickers for sale or as part of full membership.
For members that don't seem to hang around, I really would be curious to know why and possibly work towards making changes to keep their interest.
I think once we have a footprint, we can get into affiliation, public activities, perhaps parades? etc etc etc.
anyway, just some thoughts. Feel free to pick em apart and call me a dumbass or point and laugh, I have no problem with constructive criticism.

I personally don't have the free time to take on a leadership role. I admit that I tend to let things slip with the website aspect, but I try to keep things up as best I can.
