2019 Saw a slight change in the way that TIPEC Scotland was organised.  Instead of an RO and two AROs it was decided to spread the workload a bit more evenly and have a management team (or committee) of six members all with an equal say in matters, although for administrative reasons we would still keep the three “official” posts.  Under the new Management Team’s care in 2019, we attended nine Car Shows during the summer, had two Weekends Away (Spring and Autumn), six Lunch Runs and numerous social events that included a Burns Supper, launch of the new 911 at OPC Perth, BBQ at Bo’ness, visit to Zoldani at Dunfermline, visit to Tesla Edinburgh, Ten Pin Bowling Night and a Xmas Dinner and Party Night.  A number of our members also attended shows at Essen and Dinslaken on the Continent, Silverstone and Spa Classics and various Track Days/Nights. On behalf of Team TIPEC I’d like to thank everyone that supported us and hope that you agree that we had a very successful year.  Hopefully, 2020 will be every bit as good.

As mentioned above, our annual ten pin bowling night was held at Deer Park, Livingstone in November and a very enjoyable time was had by all those that attended.  Various prizes were handed out with John Davidson being crowned as the overall winner.  Thanks to Neil Baird for organising this.  In December, our annual Dinner and Party Night was held at the Selkirk Arms, Kirkcudbright and as usual was well attended and enjoyed by all.  Thanks to Nick Marshall for organising this.  Also in December, we had a Curry Night at Indie Roots, Bathgate which was well supported and again was a great success.  Thanks must go to Tim Price for this one. The Burns Supper at Railbridge Bistro in January (still to be held at time of writing) is being organised by Brian Hutchieson.

At our December Meeting the Annual Awards were announced.  These were the result of a members’ vote and the winners were as follows –

New Member Award – Brian Hutchieson

Technical Award – Martin Whitelaw

Member of the Year Award – David Clelland

Spirit of the Club Award – John Park

December’s Meeting was also the Scottish Region’s AGM where the old Management Team stood down and a new one was elected.  A list of nominations was read out and since there were no new additions, the following members were elected to represent the club during the coming year – David Clelland, Tim Price, Neil Baird, Andrew McDowell, Nick Marshall and John Davidson.

There was no January Meeting due to the fact that the first Wednesday of the month landed on New Year’s Day, so the first Monthly Meeting of 2020 will be on 5th February.  Hopefully this will be well attended by old and new members alike.  A list of events has still to be finalised, but some provisional ones are as follows –

5th February 2020 – Monthly Meeting at Bo’ness Motor Museum

16th February 2020 – Lunch at Louis Brown’s, Dalgety Bay (TBC)

4th March 2020 – Monthly Meeting at Bo’ness Motor Museum

15th March 2020 – Monthly Lunch Run (TBC)

1st April 2020 – Monthly Meeting at Bo’ness Motor Museum

19th April 2020 – Monthly Lunch Run (TBC)
