Kitchen Franchise

Published by under Catering

After some years of good service and great food Jo has decided to vacate the Kitchen Franchise.

We now need to find a caterer to fill this position, we have had a number of enquiries to date and we would ask any member who may be able to assist in the search, to fully maximise the club’s options, then please contact me.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank Jo and her team for the dedication and great service they have given to TBYC.

Thank you Work Party

Published by under Club Notices

A big thank you to all those who turned up on saturday in the poor weather, unfortunately we were unable to do any painting however lots of other messy jobs were carried out, slipway scrubbing, race box sorting, fence repairs, drinks cooler moving and lift removal.
well done to Peter Thompson who almost single handed antifouled the slipway on sunday.
The next work party is set for saturday the 19th march
, we will need lots of help to get the painting done on the committee boat and guard boats, if in the meantime you have a spare few hours on a sunny day and would like to make a start please do so, call Barry or Peter for access to the paints etc.
Also thanks to the boys who supplied the tools, Matt, Toby, Anthony & Mike,
