Colin Diffy will be running and organising a 200 club, starting in May 2014. If you would like to enter, you will need to pay a small fee for a number between 1 and 200. If your number is selected at each month's committee meeting, you will win a proportion of the total entrance fee's!
Geoffrey Fryer mentioned in his safety report this month that crews should remember to check their heel restraints are working correctly and that crews should always keep an eye on the weather before they go afloat to make sure that the conditions are safe for your ability.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly for most of us, there will be a significant change to the way regatta fee's are paid this year. In the past the fee's have been collected at boat loading or even after the event. The club is still owed money for regatta's last season, including from people who put up an entry but never raced.
In future, the club will expect the money for your race before the entries are submitted. If you have not paid either myself, Terry (treasurer) or Waddy (captain) before the entries are sent off, your crew will not be entered and you will have to apply for a late entry if you still wish to race.
Keep an eye on the notice board for regatta posters beginning to appear.
