No 26 : Sailing Taster Day

No 25: Farm BBQ Sat 11th August 2012

From: Emmanuel Coccolios

I’m having a BBQ on my farm on Saturday 11th August 2012 and you are welcome to come along (including family).

Feel free to bring along some outdoor games, there is plenty of space so kids can bring their bicycles too if they want. I will arrange for people to have a go at Clay Pigeon Shooting and there could also be tractor rides.

Since I will not be able to cater for everyone’s dietary requirements, please bring whatever you would like in terms of food and drink. There are toilets and running water, but no electricity. Chairs and tables are limited also, but there is plenty of grass around for a picnic.

If it’s raining it may be cancelled/postponed, so bear this in mind.

Kick off time will be around 12pm’ish.

Address: Nutberry Fruit Farm, Portsmouth Road, Ripley, Surrey. GU23 6BA (note that this is the nearest postcode and SatNav’s will take you 500m away from the actual gate).

Hope to see you there,

If you need any further information, let me know and finally, please RSVP so I can gauge numbers.



No 22 : Dates For Your Diaries

Hi All

Just a couple of dates for your diaries so that you don’t miss out on our annual events:

Sunday 19 August Club Picnic

Saturday 1 December Club Christmas Party at the Cricketers with a live group this year.

More details to follow nearer each event.

Look forward to seeing you all then and hopefully before.



Quiz Night

Hi all

Chris broached the idea of a quiz night with me at the pool last Thursday. His thinking is that if we have regular events, like a quiz night or a games night, we get a much better turn out, which could lead to more regular attendance on Thursdays. I agreed with him and promised to raise it with my nearest Committee member, who tells me that she won’t be at the next meeting, hence the email.

The quiz would be diving related, but not exclusively to the diver training programme syllabus. It would include for example seamanship and related subjects. Chris is happy to prepare the questions and his idea is teams of four, choose your own team, old and new members mixed , (so the oldies are not too embarrassed when they lose).

It would mean hiring the meeting room. Perhaps a modest entrance fee, with a small prize for the winners?

If you think it’s a good idea all Chris needs is a date.
