Annual Regatta and Bart’s Bash, 20 September
A great success, expertly run by PC and PN – thanks! Twelve boats on the water, cooperative wind, good racing, and cake. Possibly too much cake.
Sport England Inspired Facilities grant. As most (all?) of you know by now, we have secured a substantial grant from Sport England to fund the remodelling and extension of the clubhouse – mainly the changing rooms and the kitchen. Building work will start on Monday 19 October, and this will inevitably mean some disruption. Apologies for this – but the end result will be well worth it! Some parts of the clubhouse will be inaccessible at certain times, with limited changing and kitchen facilities, and it will help the builder if we can move some of our clutter out of the way. So:
Fetch your stuff. Do you have clothing in the changing rooms, or unused sails/spars/foils hanging around? If so, please take them home, if you can, before 18 October. After that date, your precious belongings may get covered in dust and/or become inaccessible.
Reclaim your trailer. There is a trailer mountain on the (ahem) North Lawn. Is yours in there? If so, please take it home if you possibly can, to get it out of the way. Unclaimed wrecks are liable to be scrapped. Peter has his hacksaw poised …
Working party, Saturday 7 November. Details a bit hazy at this stage, but we certainly have work to do on the jetties. Watch this space.
Annual Dinner, Friday 27 November, 7.30 pm, Marcia Inn, Bishopthorpe. Further details and menus very soon – but for now just make sure you have the date clear in your diary. Unmissable.
Trophies. Phil Nelson needs them well in advance of the dinner, so that they can be handed out again. If you have any trophies, please return them to Phil straightaway – and by the end of October at the very latest.
End-of-Season meeting. Thursday 10 December. Details to follow.
