Hi there folks!
This is a very prestigious event, the 40th Anniversary of the Mirror Miracles Association.
We expect between 50 to 60 boats to compete. Children as well as adults. We as a club have committed to supply full support throughout the week. We need definite offers of help for the safety boats x 4, beach masters, various social events etc.
My purpose in sending this missive now is therefore to forewarn members of the event and its impact upon the clubs future vis a vis National events – and to ask whether or not you are able to commit to supporting this event and in what capacity.
We need to be able to plan ahead, SO if you haven’t committed to next years holidays yet, how about booking these dates in your diary and sending me confirmation or otherwise of your ability to assist?
Please, please don’t wait till a week before the event to offer your support WE NEED IT NOW !!!
Hunts Sailing Club, near St Ives in Cambridgeshire, are holding an annual Laser Open Meeting for standard, radial and 4.7 rigs on Saturday 19th October.
Hunts SC is a family club with about 200 members on a deep gravel pit about half a kilometre square.
They offer keen racing, good food, good beer and plenty of prizes. The details are shown on the poster below.
Hunts SC is near the A14 and not far from the A1, A11 and M11, so driving times might be shorter than people think.
Hello to all our members and especially to all those new families who have joined in the past two to three months. It’s good to see so many young people joining us and wanting to experience the clubs facilities and the various watersports equipment we currently have.
My main purpose in writing is to invite any members who wish to join us at an AT HOME session on SATURDAY 28th SEPTEMBER between 4pm and 7pm.
This will be an opportunity for those of you who wish to access the first floor. See what it’s like now, its potential in the near future, what needs to be done ‘in house’ and of course to soak up the view!!!
We shall be inviting a few of those local people who have supported the clubs development including our Borough and Town Mayors, together with local councillors and business people.
Since access will be via the loft stairs, do remember to wear suitable clothing and shoes folks!
Do come along for a chat, to support your committee, and of course a view of the first floor.
The bar will be open too!!!
I am again delighted to inform members that Ian and Thelma Holland, have in addition to donating new matting for entrance doors,have today presented the club with a brand new much needed Freezer . On behalf of our members, Thanks Ian and Thelma, much appreciated.
YIPPEE we finally took possession of the new club keys today. We are meeting for a Snagging meeting 4pm tomorrow. Wednesday, and will be busy setting up the bar , furniture etc on Thursday and Friday.. Its the North West Norfolk Sailing Association weekends racing this weekend, so the place will be buzzing .
