Upcoming Events in February

I just wanted to quickly let you know about some of the upcoming social events going on at your club.  I know that at this time of year it is easy to batten down the hatches, but there are some great events happening at the club that you should strongly consider attending.

  • 8 February at 1700 - Appy Night for John Pirquet.  This is our opportunity to support John's Family, and remember this amazing man and sailor. Please bring a dish (appetiser)
  • 16 February Awards Night - This is a great event to celebrate all of the amazing sailing that we had as a club over the past year.  This is not just for racers.  Cruisers and Junior fleets are encouraged to attend.  The night starts at 1700 with dinner (Steak, chicken or Vegetarian) at 1800 and the awards start at 1900.  Cost is $15, with sign up at the bar.
  • 23 February Commodore's Ball - This is the high point of our entertainment year.  It gives us all an opportunity to celebrate the year that was and the year to come. The local sailing community joins us for an evening of fun and dancing at the Naden Wardroom.  It is my opportunity to formally recognise all of the hard work that the Executive Committee and volunteers have done on your behalf.  The club simply would not run without the amazing people that make up our club.  The night has some great food, music and dancing planned.  Please join me, cost is $75 and begins at 1800 with a special drink event for 1900 dinner.

As a reminder, please sign up early and sign up often for these events.  The volunteers who organise these things generally get nervous and would like to know who is coming.  

I hope to see you at one of these events soon.
