VASK 20 Years old?
« on: June 13, 2022, 10:13:51 am »
I just had a thought this morning, is VASK 20 years old? I can't recall if VASK 1.0 kicked off in 2001, 2002 or 2003. Does anyone recall?

it was pretty well established when I joined in 2005, I just looked at the membership list, but it only goes back to 2010

VASK in its current iteration started on 15th Dec 2004, and we were around for a good while before then, must have been at least a year or two!

10 days or so later I joined vask...
It's certainly been going for a long time.

I visit very occasionally now I have no VAGs, only old Benzes, but can find my very first posts from early 2005: https://web.archive.org/web/20050206060758/http://www.vask.org.nz/index.php/board,12.0.html
I was talking to VASKers maybe a year or two before joining this forum in 2004 however (from memory) so yeah, 20 years is about right
