On This Day In 3Ts History

Post by Richard » Fri Dec 28, 2012 2:45 am

I would like to try and set a challenge for everyone in the new year.
I thought it would be a good idea to see if we could complete a full year of historical events that took place
in the three towns, whether it be a birth - marriage - death of someone well known who made a major
impact on the world or the opening of a new building in the 3Ts or the closure of a local business etc etc.
The event can come from any category whatsoever, all that I ask is that it is strictly related to any
of the three towns of Ardrossan, Saltcoats or Stevenston.
I contemplated attempting this on my own, to start in January 2015, but found it far too hard and after
taking some advice have decided it wiser to try & get as many people involved as possible by setting this
challenge. That way we have a far greater chance of achieving it, I think ?
It would be excellent if we could get a minimum of one post per day for each of the three towns, but even
that may be asking far too much ? So if we could get one post per day connected to any of the 3Ts then I
think we could call it a success ?
I am posting this just now to give all those who may be interested some advance notice that I already
have something in mind for Ardrossan, to get us started on the 1st, and to give yous a chance to gather
ideas for the 1st (and any other dates).
Remember:
The event can come from any category.
It must be strictly related to any of the 3Ts.
It has to be posted on the appropriate corresponding day.

On This Day is a great idea, Richard.

I'll contribute where I can.

Richard,

The topic has the potential to introduce items which might not otherwise be posted.

I think it will be very interesting

I've already drafted something for the 1st of January.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

We were heading for conflicting posts with there virtually being three topics in one. :shock: I've added a sub-forum under the Threetowners' Lounge and split the posts to each town's new topic. You can do all the usual stuff there other than start new topics. 8)
