CBBC next saturday

July 7, 2013 No Comments

Hi all,

CBBC TV is broadcasting live from the Oasis Centre from 9am to 10am on Saturday 13th July, the ‘WILD’ show

The club has been asked if we can have a backdrop of various craft on the water and children seen enjoying themselves. Les Collinson hopes to have some Kayaks on the water, I shall be out with my Catamaran and a young crew as will Mark Lees. Tim or a colleague will have the safety boat there and will possibly take a camera man out to get close ups of the activity which might also include a windsurfer/kiter.

Snettisham Sailing Club I believe will also have a Rib on the water.

If you wish to be on the water with your Son/Daughter/young relative, for a bit of TV fame, you will need to sign a form agreeing to filming of the offspring. I will have the forms.

Please let me know if you can/will join us by next Wednesday at the latest. Its all good publicity for the club

Sunday 14th April saw the arrival of 12 Kings Lynn Sea Cadets all eager to get on the water in some form or another. Unfortunately we had high winds all day though by mid afternoon we had them down on the beach with the help of Beth Harding , Dad Dave, Tim Starling, Steve Hunt n Dave Gumb. They were able to experience Windsurfing, sup boarding and would you believe SWIMMING Brrrr.

We managed a healthy Barbecue Thanks to Carol, Sandra and Sue  and at the end of the day the Cadets were asking to come back for more in the future !!! A great day despite the weather. Thanks go to Bob Panrucker of the Sea Cadets for organising their trip to Sunny Hunny.

Dont forget the AGM this Sunday at the Fire Station 3pm folks. See you there .

Welcome to our new website

WELCOME

Hi folks and welcome to our new website. This has come about by the good offices of member Marcus and his Son Jack together with Liz Pendleton and John Matthews. I shall try to do an update Monthly now and this should mean I no longer need send out missives via email to 150 plus members forgetting to delete all those email addresses . I apologise if you have been upset by my inability to comprehend the technicalities of the system and did not delete your email address before clicking SEND. !!!

 

The AGM is on 21st April 3pm at the Hunstanton Fire Station. You will have all received the Agenda and papers so do come along and help us decide if there should be a CLUB  NAME CHANGE or not. Dont forget you can arrange for a proxy vote if you are unable to attend.

 

The New Committee boat Sarah D (see photo opposite) is almost ready for launch. Thanks to all who came down last Sunday and helped get the Trailer base ready and in situ. Will Rockliffe has done a brilliant job of building the trailer and all it needs now are for the wheels to be fitted and a repaint. So do contact Tim Starling and find out how/when you can help.

 

REBUILD
You will see we have a separate section for the rebuild so  hope to  keep you all updated on progress.

The portable cabin is in situ and the keys are in the coded locked box on the front by the door. Its the same code you used for your keys safekeeping in the past. If anyone is not aware of that code please phone or email Tim Starling or me, as we don’t want it broadcast to the world for security reasons.
