The IOW Car Club AGM and awards ceremony took place at Quay Arts Centre on Friday 1st April, a healthy attendance of over 50 members, once again showing the current strength of the club.
The trophies had been sorted, polished and positioned ready for receiving, this in itself not a small undertaking. Steve Stotesbury works very hard to ensure he gets them all back from last year, organises all of the engraving and gets any new ones needed made to order. There were some extremely nice new examples on show and for this we must thank Steve for all of his hard work.
With no new members voted on and nobody stepping down the committee are to remain the same, the work they do for the club is very much appreciated by all. Year on year the club is growing and in part this has to be down to the way the club is run so a big thank you to all of the committee members.

The marshals’ award was given to Brian Robins for his tireless effort in not only marshalling at every event but also lending a hand whenever needed; you are a true clubman Brian.
And last but by no means least is the Ray Bell clubman award, this is usually voted for by the members and awarded to the person who the club feel has given the most over the year. This year it went to Andy Williams who not only found us a new venue for this year but has provided a great many venues over the years. Andy also keeps the crowds refreshed bringing along his burger van and is just one of the many people that help make this club what it is. Well done Andy!
And that wraps it up, the end of a season.
The new season begins on 24th April at IOW college.
