AGM & Awards Evening
On Saturday the 3rd of March the IOWCC welcomes its members to the Quay Arts centre for its annual general meeting and 2011 season awards evening. As ever the fastest chef on the island will be serving up a cracking 2 course meal. The club will cover half the bill meaning we just need a menu choice and £6 from you by the 17 of February to participate! Doors will open at 7pm with food served for 7:30.
The Menu for the evening can be found here Payment via Paypal is available http://iowcc.co.uk/payments/, once paid please email name & menu choices to firstname.lastname@example.org. For cash payments please contact Matt Price on 07894050791 or Toby Allen email@example.com, please note you cannot pay on the evening.
There will be awards for last years season handed out after the meal. Regrettably this does mean if you were fortunate enough to win a trophy last season its time to give it a polish and return to Steve Stotesbury. You can arrange delivery direct with Steve on 07855877282. Alternatively Jai Nolan has kindly offered to be a drop off point for trophy’s at the Gun shop in Newport.
Finally there will be the AGM, its at this point the 2012 committee will be voted in and is your opportunity to voice any thoughts you have over the coming season. Anyone who can, should attend!
8pm Wednesday the 21st of March at Camphill Prison club in Newport will host a refresher to Marshalling at events. We implore you to come to this. Whilst we have some well seasoned Marshall’s in our midst the efficiency and understanding of the job is key to not only the safety at events, but also fair scoring and number of runs you get in at each event! Additionally there happens to be a bar selling drinks there so you’d be a fool not to come.
Membership forms for the 2012 season can be downloaded from the clubs website here http://iowcc.co.uk/payments/ . Membership and event prices have been frozen so remain exactly the same as last season. The agm and Marshall training evenings will be an ideal opportunity to settle up for the year. Alternatively you can pay online through Paypal at http://iowcc.co.uk/payments/ and post the printed and signed application to the address at the bottom of the form. Members shall default to their race number from the previous season.

Safety at events is imperative, your committee has therefore deemed it necessary to enforce some new reg’s for the up coming season.
Cars in all classes
To be fitted with bodywork including a driver compartment isolated from the engine, fluid filled batteries, gearbox, hydraulic reservoirs, transmission shafts, chains, belts and gears, brakes,
wheels, suspension components including their operating linkages and attachments, petrol/fuel tanks, oil tanks, water header tanks, catch tanks and fuel system components. Vehicles to be fitted with a bonnet covering the engine and all its’ major components.
If batteries have been moved into the drivers compartment and there is no bulkhead to separate the driver area from the battery, a battery box must be used.
Where a radiator is not isolated from the driver a suitable deflector is to be fitted to prevent fluid directly coming into contact with the vehicle’s occupants
Have positive fastenings for all doors and all hinged or detachable parts of the bodywork.
Classes 1-4 only (not class 5)
A) Body shape must conform to the original silhouette of the vehicle and retain the original layout of engine and transmission.
B) Any areas of window, opening or transparent material originally specified as part of the vehicle to provide Driver visibility must remain consistent with he original specified dimensions and position.
C) If originally fitted with driver/passenger doors, hatchback doors, sliding doors, opening boots or tailgates, these must be secured in the closed position during events.
For clarity, Points A,B & C must be adhered to for classes 1-4, if you fall outside of this you will compete in class 5.
Finally all cars must be silenced and reasonable measures should be undertaken to keep cars quiet. At the discretion of officials cars may be excluded due to excessive noise.
You may or may not be aware every time you pay for an event on the day, £1 goes into a pot for the clubs chosen charity. In recent year this has been the IOW hospice and the club shall be proud to present a cheque to the hospice early later in the year. We are considering changing the charity for this collection so if any members have any recommendations please let us know!
All the best and hope to see you all on the 3rd March!
