Congratulations for October 2009 go to...................

ALL THE NPOC GUYS AND GALS (and their guests) who represented on the NPOC stand at JAE 2009!


In this special Feature Of The Month (to replace our traditional COTM), we'll try bloody hard to look back and take it all in (again), as we review the club cars, club members, club activities and well... Just review it all! This feature is purely one dedicated to the NPOC and what we did at JAE!


Anyways.. WELL DONE to all of you who were there, you did the Club proud! You'll see photos of the NPOC cars splattered all over the place in here.. They looked amazing!


The Intro:


JAE (Japanese Auto Extravaganza) is a long standing Jap car meet and over the years has grown from what was originally a weekend get together for some Old Skool Datsuns, to the biggest annual Jap car meet outside of Japan!!


The whole event runs from Thursday through to Sunday.


What you'll find at JAE is the UK's finest Jap Car Clubs (and some from Europe too), their members chilling out and a few thousand serious Jap cars!



The meet was still held in September (changed from July in 2007) and the Jap car Gods made sure we were blessed with glorious sunshine each day and plenty of sun burn at night, to help us through the chilly tenting! We have a massive club stand at JAE and we all camp directly it and socialise on it for the whole event.. We lovingly call it the "NPOC Village"! We had around 70 club cars on display and our numbers (members and guests) totalled around 100!





For some of the Club members (the Elites), JAE started early on the Thursday. The Club Owners had invited the Elite members to join us a day early, so that they could help us with the stand setup and also enjoy a private party… The party was to say thanks from the Club Owners for all the Elites give to the club.



The Thursday night party went on late into the morning and we had some ugly looking members come sun up on Friday (when I say ugly, I mean uglier than normal!) Friday was the official day for JAE to start and the rest of the club arrived through out the day and early evening.




Friday saw the start of the JAE sporting / inter club events as well.. Every year at JAE they have events that encourage the many car clubs to take part, this year NPOC entered everything we could.. Why not I guess, you were all up for it and so we arranged it.


Friday only had the one event and that was the karting! This was the 1st year JAE had held an inter club karting event (mainly due to this being the 1st year JAE was held anywhere with karts!).. The competition was eagerly awaited (as was the format).. In the end the JAE organisers went with a 2 person team per club (1 male / 1 female) and a clever twist of a clothing change midway through the race! It was more a comedy fun event, than a flat out pro kart event and was better for it too.








We didn’t win anything here but it was funny as hell watching and our team did us proud!!


The rest of the day was also taken up with the members spending hours detailing their cars and bringing them up to an incredible standard for viewing.



Friday night was spent chilling out in the NPOC village.




This is pretty much the “all systems go” day! The public roll in through the gates to check out the cars and the clubs lock horns and continue the sporting battles, including the JAE official Show ‘n’ Shine competition. I’ll cover all of this in more detail below.



In between all of that, the NPOC members also found time to continue prepping their cars, for the public viewing and also the NPOC competition.


As mentioned above, we also held our own annual car judging competition on the Saturday on the NPOC stand, the cars were absolutely stunning!! It was constantly mentioned that judging and voting was just soooooooo hard, because the cars were so evenly matched.



The NPOC Sporting Teams:


We entered teams and individuals into every event at JAE and before we cover any of that.. MAHOOSIVE RESPECT to all of you who represented the club here.. AND a big shout out to all of the remaining members, who supported from the sidelines too!


The Footie – Again we entered two 5 a side teams:



The Tug Of War – You should all know that the NPOC (and their team know as the Bears), were defending JAE Tug Of War champions from JAE 2008, so the Bears were hyped up and bigger than before to keep that title! To make it even harder for them, we entered a second team this year, “the Cubs”.





Bears Vs Cubs:

It is with great pleasure that I can announce and remind you all… The NPOC Bears won the competition for the 2nd year in a row and retain their title as JAE Tug Of War champions!! They also bagged a very nice trophy (as well as individual medals) for being the winning team.


Special mention to the NPOC Cubs, as the hardest pull the Bears had, was against the Cubs.



The Car Pull – We entered this for the 1st time this year and not satisfied with winning the TOW competition or tired from it either.. “JC#79” picked up the rope and pulled the Nissan! He won that as well!!




Bungee Running – Not sure if I’ve got the name of this event correct, as it was last minute event at JAE.. But anyways, strap yourself to a bungee rope, jump on an inflatable castle and off you go!! One of our member’s guests (son) “Andy”, was honoured to be chosen for this event and got stuck in.




Gladiator Jousting – After I had bagged “Andy” for the above event, I figured I’d also bag his old man for another event too.. So without any hesitation “Shadow” stood up to the plate and represented the club here.




Tyre Endurance – A strangely named event for this one, seeing as there were no tyres LOL (there were last year and I guess the name just stuck) but anyways, “Lurch” gave it his best at holding up the tyres (I mean springs) but there was no win for us here.

“JC#79” who was just standing around, asked the organizers if he could have a go (just for fun).. They agreed and he beat everyone else at that as well.. Sadly no trophy for that, it was an unofficial entry etc.


Jap Eating Competition – This was the 2nd year for this event and we had member “Tsunaii” step up to the plate (pun down!) and represent the club. Personally I missed this event sadly and more sad is the fact that we have had no photos appear of her taking part? If anyone has a photo please get in touch as I’d love to add it.



At the same time as the sporting events were taking place, 6 of our members (with super shiny and sexy cars), rolled into the official JAE Show ‘n’ Shine competition. They were entered into the Nissan Group (unsurprisingly!). We all know the score with what can be expected with Primera's in the JAE Show ‘n’ Shine and I guess we weren’t disappointed with the outcome! No win for any of our guys until attitudes and opinions throughout the universe change! BUT a massive thanks to you 6 for taking part, you represented NPOC and your cars were outstanding.



Once all the official JAE events had finished, the NPOC guys and gals returned to the club stand and everyone got handed out the NPOC judging form, to judge the cars on our stand.



This is our own club competition and EVERY member who has a car on the stand could win a trophy. What makes this a special event is that the judging is done by the members. Anyone who won anything can be happy that they won it, due to the admiration and respect of their fellow members.


The votes were counted up and shortly after the club BBQ in the early evening, the NPOC awards ceremony took place.


The trophies were presented as always by "essNchill" and here's the categories and your winners:



Best P10 and winner of the trophy was: Sprint

2nd place - Tom-P10

3rd place - prim-n-proper


Best P11 and winner of the trophy was: JC#79

3rd place - Quaily

2nd place (TIE) - Shadow & Quaily

3rd place - Angel1


Best Primera on stand and winner of the trophy was: JC#79

A big well done to all of you.
There was also a private NPOC trophy up for grabs at JAE as well!! Members "Nookie" & "MysticMike", who both drive gorgeous P11 GTSE's, decided to have a competition to see who would bag the most votes for having the shiniest Mystic on the stand. They paid for their own trophy and a show of hands by the members... Announced "MysticMike" as the winner - It was very close though! Here's the winner bagging his trophy:

Straight after we were done giving out trophies on the NPOC stand, the club legged it over to the main hall for the official JAE awards ceremony! After all, we had 2 club trophies collect.


Here are the NPOC Bears picking up their medals and Tug Of War trophy.



“JC#79” picking up his trophy for the Car Pull.



We were just about to exit the hall (some had already left) when out of nowhere, the announcer mentioned NPOC winning another trophy!! No one really knew what this was about (mainly because we weren’t expecting it)… Without any hesitation “Biojoba” headed for the stage and bagged the trophy..



Followed closely by “essNchill” and then a stampede of NPOC’rs!!



It was only afterwards that we figured out we had won the trophy, called “It’s A Knockout”, because NPOC had won more of the sporting events than any other club!! We were made up.


The trophies and the club returned to the NPOC stand and the partying started and went on through the night.

Charity Fund Raiser at JAE (and also afterwards):
"Ant-Dat" came to the Club Owners before JAE and asked if he could raise some money at JAE for a charity dealing with Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). He recently lost his father to this rare illness. We were happy to support and back this one.
Using his mechanical and technical knowledge of Nissans, "Ant-Dat" performed some diagnostics and alterations on our cars for a small donation. Both NPOC and the NCN took part in this over the weekend.
The total amount raised at JAE was £500
With the few weeks since JAE and some more donations coming in, the total stands at £700 - AWESOME!
Big big thanks to all involved and all who donated.

The Nissan Club Nederland (NCN):


In 2008, we invited the NCN members over to the NPOC village as our guests, we had such a great time with them, it only seemed right to have them back again!! Their numbers had increased for 2009 (great to see) and so Saturday night they were invited to the club party!! Here they are:

The NCN also presented a pair of mighty fine clogs to "essNchill" as a thank you from them (to us as a club) for our hospitality:
Here's their feedback and some quotes from the NCN Members:

"DaMasterPNut" wrote: "I had a great JAE again, just like last year!! Many thanks to all NPOC'ers who gave us another warm welcome. Really, you guys rule! An especially a lot of respect to Shaun's misses for all the cooking, well done. Cheers to everbody"


"Sylver84" wrote: "What a great weekend, really was bloody great to share this with you all. Caroline, Shaun, G, ANT, Ade all off you, many many thanks, you make the whole crew right at home. I will be back next year."


"RikP10eGT" wrote: "I felt immediately welcome into your club and talked with some of you guys. Many thanks for the BBQ Saturday. I hope to see you all again next year. I can't say it enough but I was amazed this weekend and this wasn't my last JAE for sure."


"Jano" wrote: "It was one hell of a weekend!! Once again many thanks to NPOC for the open welcome! A special thanks to Shaun and Caroline for the cooking! Really had a blast, just like last year! Looking forward to next year! I can't wait!!"


"Jeroen_NX" wrote: "The others mentioned it earlier but it can't be said enough: A very big thank you to all of you guys for inviting us over on Saturday night again. We had a blast (again..) and will be there next year, hopefully with more people and more cars."



The NPOC pets:


A special mention to the dogs here… Max and JD, great to have them with us all weekend.









The last day of JAE for us all! It's always a sad one, as we all know JAE is ending and we're gonna be packing away the tents and loading the cars up and then having to wait another whole year. We get the morning started off well, with bacon butties and fresh juice for all.. Then it's just a matter of time until the clear up starts. Some left early to avoid the traffic, others stayed as long into the day as they could.



The food, beer and fun:


Every year we do a catering option for the members and we keep it cheap too! £10 of your finest gold coins bought you: Unlimited tea / coffee for the whole event, as much beer / wine / coke as you could drink on Saturday night and a BBQ. Still hungry on Sunday morning? Well we also made you all bacon rolls as well! £10 bargain and if you were an Elite Member, well that was a freebie for you.


"Biojoba" & "essNchill" took on the yearly task of catering for the club as always and were assisted by many members. Special thanks to all the members who helped cook, carry the supplies and clean up - Thank you!


So let's take a look at the chilling / drinking and just having fun and forget the cars, I'll also close this feature with some quotes and feedback directly from you guys and gals who were there..

AWESOME stuff peep's. There were stacks of Primera's ALL presented to a great standard and made me very proud to be included amongst them. Roll on 2010..... count me in. THANKS!"

I hope everyone enjoyed thoroughly."

"Mad Ax" wrote: "Awesome stuff! Was an absolutely cracking time, massive thanks to the club staff for making this an excellent JAE. I'm already super-excited about next year! Respects to all and thanks once again for a fantastic weekend."


I'll see the feature out with the final words and thanks from myself - A mahoooosive shout out to all and any who helped with official club stuff at JAE. Whenever we needed help with moving the catering and setting up, it was the same people who stepped up to the plate - Thank you!

The guys that helped us with the cooking (special mention to Andy "Gizz" as always here). All the guys that took the time to make sure the stand was clean and tidy each morning and for the times you picked up and lobbed stuff in the bin during the day.


In fact worth mentioning all the people who helped other members over JAE.. It was outstanding!! Everywhere I looked there were members helping other members.. It was fantastic and it just backs up why we are so well known for our friendly existence online and offline.


TO ALL THE MEMBERS WHO REPRESENTED THE CLUB... In the sporting events / it's a knockout events / official show and shine... THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH!! It made no difference to me if we won or lost but it meant the world that you wanted to represent the NPOC and that's a win all by itself regardlessly!


When we turned out at the official presentation awards on the Sat night at the hall.. We filled the place, when we stormed the stage, people took notice LOL! We cheered every club and person when they won an award, people took notice... When we won an award, people covered their ears!!


Our members are noticed by the uniformity of our club gear and our cars are noticed now as well... NPOC has become a name people now know and that's all down to you people.


The cars were truly exceptional, we had many many visitors on the stand looking around. Your friendliness to all and any was par for the course and as legendary as the name you have made for the club.


Thank you to everyone of you (including the NCN) who supported us, in supporting Ant's charity fund raiser to help remember his father. Seriously that was massive generosity!


Thank you to the NCN for coming to join us again this year and a bigger thank you to all our members here at NPOC for making them feel so welcome as always. I personally couldn't picture a JAE without the NCN enjoying a beer and a laugh with us, so long may that continue!!


NPOC is more than just a bunch of petrol heads, we are a family and we welcome all into the family. We're more than just a bunch of net heads who hang out in cyberspace too and we never discriminate against others. We offer help to anyone who needs it in here, regardless of who pays and who doesn't. We offer that same help at club meets and to members we meet on the street!


We are a success and one of the big Jap club players in UK / world! That success is entirely down to all you guys and girls who keep putting into the club.. You have made us who we are today and you'll make us bigger and better for tomorrow.


You made NPOC, you are NPOC! I'm proud as fook to be a part. Many many thanks from me!

Congratulations once again to all of you!
