Pie & pint night

Last bookings for our Pie & Pint night are being taken. Please book and have responded to the reply with the pie choices before 8am Thursday 14th if you would like to come.

It was a fantastic evening last year – great fun with great food, so do come along and join us!

Thank you to those who have already booked – we look forward to seeing you.

Meeting this fridaY

Don’t forget we have our Volunteers Meeting this coming Friday 8th March at 7pm.

We invite ALL current and new parents of our juniors to attend. It’s a great way to find out how you can help – either afloat or on shore.

We run solely on volunteers and are always so grateful for any help that can be offered – however big or small.

Members rigging

We have a large number of rigs in the container that appear to belong to club members (sails and foils). Unfortunately, we are currently unable to allow storage of private rigging at the club and need to reclaim the space.

Please contact Fiona or Marcus if any of it belongs to you to arrange collection. We need it moved by the 15th March please as we intend to have a clear out and reorganisation of our storage facilities.

Many thanks,

Fiona & Marcus

Fundraising

As you are all aware, we recently had the engine stolen from one of our RIBs (the biggest and most powerful). This is devastating following two previous winters where the pontoon has suffered massive damage in high winds, costing us dearly. We also had gearbox failure on another RIB at the end of last season so are needing two new engines to enable us to get sailing in April.

We would be incredibly grateful if you would follow the link below read more about it and to donate. Every amount is hugely appreciated, no matter how big or small.

Many thanks in advance.

Bsc socials

Thank you to everyone who came to our bingo on Friday and well done to those who won! Marcus did a stellar job as bingo caller – I think you’ve found your calling there!! Many thanks to those who donated to our bottle raffle.

It’s really important to support our socials as not only is it a fun way to spend an evening, catch up with friends and make new ones, but it is also a great way to support our club.

All monies raised from any social event goes straight back into the club – funding is vitally important to keep the club running and improve our facilities – all to enable everyone to enjoy sailing, kayaking and paddling – something we’re incredibly lucky to be able to do here in Burnham.

Our next event is our ‘Sensory Quiz’ this coming Friday 22nd. A quiz testing all your senses – there will be things to smell, touch and taste blindfolded plus we’ll be testing your eyes and ears. Should be slightly crazy but lots of fun. Please email to book a table.

On Friday 15th March we will have our Pie & Pint night. This was incredibly popular last year and the club was full to bursting. It is essential to book – once you’ve emailed to book I’ll respond and let you know the pie options. This event falls on Red Nose Day so please feel free to wear your red noses. We’ll be collecting donations on the night for Comic Relief.

So pop the dates in your diaries, book your places and we look forward to seeing you at the club!
