Annual General Meeting

The 2017 L&OBMBC AGM took place on Wednesday night at the King Alfred and was well attended by our members.

The treasurers report detailed out the following points:

- Membership income was UP by £800

- Race entries were UP by £1400, this is especially good as we lost 3 meetings due to poor weather conditions

- The revised format race program & revenue gained by additional advertising created an increase of £5000, the best by far for numerous years

- Gate receipts were UP by £1300, the best results since 2013

- Catering income was UP

- Caravan income was UP due to the additional program sales

     In total we had an increase of income this year of £12000 to over £35000, a level that we’ve not seen for 8 years. This is a fantastic achievement & shows our hard work is paying off! Our expenses remained pretty much identical to the previous season.

     This is the 1st true trading profit the club has made since 2012 when only £200 was made, this years increase is the best since 2007.

All in all the above speaks for itself, we will continue to improve into the 2018 race season & with the European OSY championships scheduled for July it promises to be another fantastic year for the UK’s premier club.
