Dear all

A busy day on Sunday with lots of boats out enjoying the breeze!  Look forward to next week – details below.

We celebrated John Harris’s life in grand style on Tuesday – see the report below.

On Thursday 6th Zoe Adams regaled us with tales of her non stop walk for the British Heart Foundation back in the heatwave of July (remember that?).  A great talk, with contributions from the Scottish wild life.  See the report  below.

Looking ahead:

Christmas Lunch Preparation – morning of Saturday 15 December
We have a full house for our Christmas Lunch this year and will be seating circa 104 people!!  Calling any volunteers who can come along at 10am on Saturday 15th to help lay tables and prep the veg for our Christmas Lunch on Sunday 16th.  It’s always a jovial morning with a great atmosphere and lots of laughs, maybe with a coffee and a mince pie thrown in as well.  Everyone is welcome, it’s a huge help and as they say many hands make light work!  Let Nicky Johnson know if you can help at all on nickyjohnsontamesis@gmail.com.
AND – If anyone has a microwave they could bring to the Club for us to use on Sunday 16th at the Club – please let Nicky know
Sunday 16th December – Christmas Pudding races with a prize for the best decorated boat.  We will have the usual 1030 handicap followed by the class races from 1115.
Followed by:
Christmas Lunch – fully booked to include special visitor.
Wednesday 26th – Boxing Day.  Races from 1115 – no 1030 handicap.  Classes race for the traditional silly prizes.  Come and get rid of those Christmas cobwebs and join in the fun.  There are no staff so we ask you to bring your pot luck contributions to lunch.  The bar will be run by volunteers.
See you soon
