Club vice-captain Mike B writes: As the evenings draw in, and the leaves turn to gold, thoughts turn to our AGM and the election of a new Committee for the year ahead.
Click here to view or download the Calling Notice for our AGM, to be held on Tuesday the 25th of October 2022.
There are a number of cut-off dates before the AGM itself is held, for nominations to the Committee and for submission of items to be discussed at the AGM itself, so please do read the Calling Notice carefully.
If you have any queries relating to the Calling Notice, please feel free to contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
There’s a sheet up in the shed for nominations for officers and committee members.
Club captain Marianne adds: Do think about joining our Committee. The club cannot run without the time and effort that the Committee, and others, devotes to the club. With that said, thanks to Alan S, Louise, Douglas, Beth, Scott, Anne, John, Lesley and, of course Mike B, for all your help and support over the past year.
Events – lots to look forward to!
North South race/Andy’s Race Day, Saturday 08 October
Sign-up sheet is in the shed for this exciting day we’re planning! Also, Anne F is looking for help with the race timing operation.
Tweed Row, Sunday 09 October
This is a five mile row from Berwick to Paxton House and back. There is the opportunity to change crews at Paxton House, where the traditional picnic takes place.
Freshwater Sprints, Saturday 29 October
This is the last event of the season where we take part in sprint races not as a club, but as part of South East region. It takes place on beautiful Loch Tummel, with Schiehallion looking down on proceedings. It’s a great social occasion and I’d recommend you think about taking part. Anne P will be co-ordinating the south east team.
Sign-up sheets are up in the Shed for all these events.
Oars – testing, testing
We’re looking at replacing oars (though the current sets of oars will still be available to use). As part of working out our requirements, we’ve borrowed a similar set from our friends at NQ. We want you to give them a try and note your thoughts on sheets provided on the noticeboard. Thanks to everyone involved, particularly Douglas, Alan D and Louise.
Mark and Douglas will be taking Ferry Maid off the water for an extended period of maintenance. This includes painting, which needs to be done before the colder weather sets in. Rachel has organised for seats to get some much-needed tlc, which we’re very grateful for.
Be kind to each other.
