The mad Scots' January 1st BBQ
Cancelled as the mad Scot is regretfully otherwise engaged.
Our website coordinator has a tradition of BBQ'ing on the 1st of January! After a pint at the end of the committee meeting, at least one member was heard to state 'I'm up for that' so it looks like there may be more people involved this year! Be warned, 1st January 2013 vas very cold, survival suits were worn, but it was a beautiful clear night and I'll be doing it I'm here, so if anyone wants to join me please let me know! If there are several boats involved, the plan will be to go to Hemphome for the night of the 1st January
Our AGM has been scheduled for the 9th April 2014, again in the Foresters 19:30 for 2000 with a buffet and drinks afterwards. Please come along and support the organisation if you can make it.
We intend to hold our normal litter pick day in conjunction with the IWA, date to be confirmed.
Early season cruise
An early season cruise to North Frodingham was discussed, as we have done in earlier years, however it was felt that a cruise to Hull Marine for a night, possibly to coincide with the official opening of the ERYC viitor berths on Beverley Beck would be a better idea and a good shakedown cruise following the winter. The exat date to be confirmed but the weekend after Easter is a possibilitiy.
Cruise to Trout Inn, Wansford
The committee discussed the posibility of a dinghy cruise to the Trout inn at Wansford. This would likely entail taking larger boats to Brigham, then proceeding by dinghy to the Trout inn the following day. Beverley Boat Hire have stated that they may be able to make boats available for this for people who would like to go but do not have theur own dinghies.
North Frodingham cruise
The traditional North Frodingham cruise will take place at the end of the summer once all the travelling boats come back, probably in September as in the last few years but the date will be decided nearer the time.
Yard Tidy day
This years yard tidy day was not a great success, with only one person (thank you Mr Chairman!)managing to turn up. Unfortunately a lot of members had other committments, work, and an assortment of other 'good excuses' but we would like to make the effort to get together for the annual tidy up next year.
