WMC Awards Dinner (30/01/2016)

The WMC Awards Dinner took place yesterday evening, with four of our competitors present to collect their XBC Awards, and by all accounts a pleasant evening was had by all.

The XBC Organisers were not able to attend since they were participating in “Pre Season Fitness Training” (cough!!), snowboarding in the French Alps.

EACC AGM (28/01/2016)

The XBC Team was present at the East Ayrshire Car Club AGM yesterday evening.

We are pleased to be able to report that once again we have the unanimous support of the EACC Committee, who simply trust us to run things professionally.

The EACC Committee had no concerns or queries relating to our plans, and after brief consideration of our proposed revamped EACC Logo artwork in orange and black, had no hesitation in approving it for use on our Web Site and Car Stickers, describing it as “different, but instantly recognisable“.

The positive attitude and willing support in evidence is refreshing, and is much appreciated by the XBC Team members, who are confident of a harmonious relationship for years to come.

Whilst there is no requirement to join EACC to be part of the Championship, we would ask you to consider supporting our Host Club too. One additional reason for doing so might be so that you can participate in the many test days at Kames. The choice is yours!! Please see the EACC Web Site Membership Page for details.

WMC “Divorce Settlement”

Following the September 2015 WMC decision to drop their support of the Speed Championship and Speed events, the terms of our “divorce” were agreed at the WMC Committee meeting of 25/11/2015.

We are pleased to say that after a delay of some six weeks, we have finally received XBC funds that were held by WMC in the sum of £290.87 which allows us to balance our books.

The final position for the 2015 season is that, primarily due to a successful October Kames event, XBC operations for 2015 showed a £263.33 surplus. This surplus has been retained by WMC, and leaves the XBC on a zero balance with which to start afresh in 2016.
