Weekly News 29/11

It was busy weekend here at the club with both days packed with events. We had a very successful Quiz night last Saturday. Special thanks to Sid Livingstone for hosting and organizing  the event and the staff for providing a delicious mezze!

Ant Law Reports...
As there is not much sailing news to report,  a wealth of historical news is available from some of the logs submitted for this year's prizegiving event. Reports of cruises to remember, or possibly forget, are available from Peter Hooper and Iain Simpson. Please click on the names to view.

We still need your help...
The Cadets are looking for a 4-6 horse power engine (suitable for an 8 foot dinghy) and somebody happy to donate it for the Cadets to use. Let us know if you can help.

We are looking for volunteers to help put up the Christmas decorations in the club. We are doing it on Thursday, December 7 from noon onwards. Any help will be much appreciated! It should be a fun day!

This week at the club...
The kitchen will be closed this Thursday evening due to staff holiday. The bar will still be open as per usual.

Friday Night is Sole & Steak Night.  As usual, our Dover Soles are limited so please make your booking early to avoid disappointment.

The club will be packed this Saturday evening with both a private and a member's event happening simultaneously. Please note that the bar and the dining room will be very busy for the private function.

Sundays are proving to be popular and it is getting busier and busier every week. Please help us plan our meals better and book in early! We are having Roast Sirloin of Beef and Roast Pork Shoulder (with the crackling of course) all supplied by our local Secret Butchers.
