I am launching a new website called the Rover Automobile Resource Site 
for North America. Go to RoverNA.com to tour the new site. RoverNA is 
NOT a business and it is NOT a membership organization.

Simultaneous with the launch of the RoverNA site, the RSTCA website has 
been withdrawn from the web.

The Rover Saloon Touring Club of America seems to have pretty much run 
its course, at this point. We don't have many heavy concentrations of 
Rover owners anywhere in the USA, and it is very difficult to maintain a 
traditional club organization when the members are rarely able to get 
together and socialize. Fortunately for those of us in the USA, we are 
able to participate in the Rovernet which serves to bring us together in 
a community that is both technically helpful and socially satisfying. 
So, the RSTCA will be laid down, at least for the time being. The 
RSTCA.com domain will remain available in case some group of Rover 
lovers hoping to begin a traditional club in the future sees some value 
in continuity.

At this point, individuals with initiative and drive are organizing 
Rover events in the USA quite well as independent enterprises such as 
the event Dirk Burrowes has planned for late May 2008. Steve Manwell and 
John Burkhardt are maintaining a directory of Rover vehicles and their 
owners. My Rover "calling" is to maintain a presence on the web that 
simply provides some basic information and points new Rover people to 
resources they will find helpful, including TARC,  RCCC and the 
Rovernet. The website at RoverNA.com will serve this purpose.

My thanks go out to all of the people who have supported the RSTCA with 
their hard work or with their presence at RSTCA events over the years. I 
look forward to continuing to work with all of you on new Rover projects 
in the future. Let's all stay in touch!

Sincerely yours,

Glen Wilson
