Many thanks to those who turned up to help at the Working Party on Sun 3rd April (and Sat 2nd for some). As always, the club looks a lot better after all your hard work. However, the number of members attending was a little low, so not all the planned tasks were completed. GENTLE REMINDER...it is an expectation that members attend the two Working Parties in addition to their Sailing Duties. The Club relies on its membership to volunteer their time to keep things ship-shape. In fact this is a crucial part of participation at the Club.
Thanks also to Emma and team for the food, and to John for the drinks.
The Following Was Achieved:
Grass cutting (first cut of the season)/ Additional safety boat launched/ ‘T’ pontoon re-laid/ East 3, 4 and 5 pontoons re-attached to bank/ Rubbish at entrance cleared/ Club boats maintained/ Lower boat park growth cut back/ Fire extinguishers attached to walls/ Gate and winch signs re-attached/ Commodore and prize winner boards erected/ Wireless router re-sited/ Clubhouse and sail shed tidied up/ The vagaries of Heater 7 wiring investigated/ Committee Boat mast repaired/ Flooded boats emptied/ Some ruts on bank filled
