Good Turn out for the 2011 AGM.
After a general discussion on the accounts for the year it was voted that the subs for the year 2012 would be increased by £2 across the board which isn't bad I think as its the first increase since I joined the club in 2006!, add to this the fact that food at all the social events, ie 2 Quiz's and hot pot supper's, Venetian Night and Frostbite Day have been free in the last couple of years, plus the subsidising of the coach trips you are certainly getting your monies worth.
You don't go to any of these events did I hear you say? we we can't drag you to these so its your own fault isn't it!.
The results of the yearly competitions were as follows.
Me presenting the Velda Teal trophy for the first time.
I was very happy to see that our departed members Graham Harling and Velda Teal were remembered for their services to the club by having a trophy named after each of them
The Graham Harling Trophy for best "J" Class sailor over the year
The Velda Teal Trophy for the best Static Model Or Diorama of the year.
Very nice thought from the committee I think.
Just the Frostbite Sail Day (27th December) now to round off an excellent year of events and activities, if you missed them as I did though no fault of my own or you just didn't bother perhaps next year will see another good year where we can support the club and continue to broadcast the club round the country.
Not forgetting Bob Abell's excellent Adventure to be coming up on BBC, the new series of "Coast" with his wonderful Cable laying Great Eastern filming over the summer, looking forward to that!!
Well what more can I say other than,
A Happy New Year.
To all club members.
