Anecdotal evidence indicates that the production of ‘hard copy’ handbooks may be an unnecessary expense, as members tend not to use the books for reference and once received they are ‘filed’, never again to see the light of day. Postage alone costs in excess of £120 and the printing c.£500.
Your General Committee has therefore agreed that as a cost saving exercise, the handbooks would not be posted out to all members as a matter of course. A smaller number of 2016 Handbooks have been printed this year.
The vast majority of members now have access to the internet and this much improved club website which contains all the handbook detail (including Sailing Programme, Fleet List, Members contact details) within the private member’s area https://www.dee-sc.co.uk/members-area/. (The information currently contained on the website will be updated with the new 2016 Handbook detail.)
If you would like a copy of the handbook, you can collect a copy from the bar at the clubhouse. Please only take one if you are going to use it.
A copy of the handbook will be posted to our ‘Outport’ members.
The Annual General Meeting of the Dee Sailing Club will be held on Sunday 22nd February 2015 at the Clubhouse. (Time to be notified.)
All members who are eligible to vote are requested to attend. It would be great to see a good turnout of members, so exercise your vote and use the opportunity to have a social drink and natter before the 2015 season kicks off.
The House & Social Committee has arranged a cocktail party to be held at the clubhouse on Saturday 5th July 2014. All members and children are invited to attend 16:00-19:00hrs. (Later for those wanting to make an evening of it!)
Canapes will be served and excellent alcoholic (and alcohol free) cocktails will be available for purchase at very reasonable rates.
Entertainment will be provided by a musician and a magician.
Dress Code: Ladies cocktail dresses and gentlemen, lounge suits, please.
The House & Social Committee has made the effort to arrange this event for the membership so please show your support for them and the club.
Please try to get down to Thurstaston this Sunday for some good sailing and after sail socialising.
Racing starts at 13:55hrs.
James Douglas will be providing some pre-race tips from about 12:00hrs for those who wish to gain from his and others experience.
