The Comrie team all got together last Thursday evening for a competitive night of Go-Kart racing at Team Works indoor karting in Digbeth, Birmingham.
With bragging rights the next working day at stake the Comrie team was raring to go. A few racers had their excuses prepared – “the kart goes faster if you are lighter” etc etc.
We had a great evening, which was partly to celebrate what a great job the Comrie team had done over the previous months converting all our fruit machines, digital gaming machines and amusement machines to accept the new £1 coin.
With the new £1 coin finally here we are already seeing the new pound coins in the cash box, but as with the new £5 note they will be rapidly appearing in peoples pockets. It has been a long and costly process to which the government gave no help in monetary, subsidies/grants and very little advice. Even the prototype coins we were sent to help us in advance were changed a few weeks before implementation date, making the job even harder!
Even so with a great team we got there and all Comrie’s customer’s machines are now taking the new £1 coin in their fruit machines and digital gaming machines. If your pub or club fruit machines are not taking the new £1 coin as yet then speak with your supplier as you will be missing out on profit and more importantly the old coin will be disappearing from circulation. Or give the team at comrie a
call to chat about our great deals on fruit machine hire that are the latest machines and all new £1 coin ready.
The Go-Karting results! As you can see by the photos above, three of the Comrie team (Mark, Jimmy & Justin) are looking very happy to be on the podium. A great night was had by all and we finished the night off with a couple of pints and a curry whilst ribbing Jason Miles one of the Directors for not only coming last but also by getting beaten by his son, Jack.
