Club News

We've been working on some updates to our website over the last few months and today we're delighted to be able to bring those changes to you.  We've updated all the software that runs the website to the latest versions and moved to a new host, which should bring you a smoother experience.  There's sure to be a few niggles that we'll try to iron out over the next few days.  If you have any problems, please contact Neil at admin@x1-9ownersclub.org.uk.

Key changes that you'll see are:

  • The site is now more mobile friendly and will reformat itself look better on your mobile device
  • Purchase of membership is no longer carried out via the online shop but now has a dedicated system which should ensure that new members get quicker access to member-only content.

Future changes planned are:

  • A more modern online shop that runs off your main website logon rather than requiring a separate one
  • Improved events calendar

At the AGM earlier this month we discussed some changes to our membership offering. So, we are now pleased to announce:

If you join or renew online there is no longer an administration fee.

We previously applied this fee to cover the additional costs the Club incurred for PayPal transactions, however in the interests of making it easier for people to join or renew without incurring an additional cost, this fee is now waived.

 

Web-Only Membership is now available to UK residents

We know many of you love receiving a printed magazine through your door, but if you're happy to read the mag online, UK residents can now get all the other benefits of Club membership for the price of £15.

 

Printed calendar now included in Web-Only Membership

We wanted to give Web-Only members even better value for money so from now UK and overseas Web-Only members will receive a copy of the Club calendar in the post each year.

So there's no better time to join us!

The committee has been working hard over the last year to reduce the cost of running the Club and producing the magazine.  As a result, the Club finds itself in a financially healthy situation and it is in a position to pass the benefit on to new and renewing members.  Therefore, from the date of the AGM (4th October), we are pleased to announce that the cost of full membership has been reduced from £30 to £25.

Remember, you can join the Club via our online shop which can be accessed here or via an application form, details of which can be found here.

So, if you were debating whether to join the Club, now is the perfect time to take the plunge and enjoy the benefits of being a full Club member.

Many thanks to everyone who came to the Club AGM on Sunday 2nd October.  It was a really constructive meeting with lots of positive ideas put forward for 2017, plus it was great to get another chance to look around the British Motor Museum.  Minutes will appear on the website shortly and in the next issue of Icsunonove.

Words and Photographs by Sharon & Ray Taylor

We really do enjoy being members of Car Clubs; Sharon has the X1/9 Owners Club, of which she is the Regalia Officer. Ray has the GT-R Owners Club, of which he is an “Executive Member” – “something vaguely to do with the Committee”; and of course by no means last - we both belong to EYTCC.

So, it does mean that we need to attend our respective AGMs; that’s when it gets interesting because, apart from the EYTCC (which we miss this year due a GTROC Event) these are held “centrally” somewhere in the UK and involve organising a conveniently situated overnight stay.

This year the X1/9 OC AGM was at the Heritage Motor Museum, Gaydon near Coventry; a superb venue for anyone with an interest in Motor Vehicle Heritage; AND it coincided with the penultimate final “Fly By” by the last Vulcan “V” bomber: XH558. The place was completely “Sold Out” for this unique event.
