THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS ON 30 JUNE / 1 JULY

Thanks to all the volunteers who stepped up last weekend to allow sailing to go ahead.

 

These were: John Casson, Tony Padbury, Gary Burrows, Barry Duce and Alex? (hopefully the right Warrington!) – and of course thanks as ever to those with duties who were there.

 

We have a significant number of people dropping out of duties this year often at the last minute and with no good reason which just makes it harder for the rest of us.

 

So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – if you have a duty and can’t do it for any reason do the following as early as possible:

  • Mark as SWAP REQUIRED on Dutyman and actively look for others to swap with.
  • Approach others who are not looking to swap – often they will swap with you if you ask.
  • Or find a future Vacancy on Dutyman and swap with that

If all else fails please let the Duty Officer know asap and at least a week before so we can advertise for a replacement

If you need help with Dutyman (it’s easy when you try, honest ) just contact me at [email protected] I will assist.

When people have made a real effort and have a reason they cannot do their duty we can often help but that is difficult if things are left until the last minute.

Dear Commadore, Vice Commodore, Committee and members of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club,

It has been 6 months since I started as Catering Manager at the club which Jenny and I have been members of for 17 years and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in the new venture which now allows all the staff to work together as one.

I would like to thank Donna and all her team for working hard with me to embrace the changes made to improve the service to the members and their friends and families.
Also thank you to Sara Speller for her hard work and support promoting Friday club nights.

I would also like to say a special thank you to Barbara Herve and Margaret Kennedy for their endless supply of fresh herbs from their gardens which are readily utilised and much appreciated.

It was an honour to cook for those members who attended the 70th anniversary celebrations, huge congratulations to Anthony and Lisa for their organisation over the whole weekend the club looked fantastic. Speical thanks to Mick Kilkelly for his assistance and support at the Christmas and 70th ball.

My final thanks goes to Janet for her daily help and support to enable the smooth running of both the club and kithcen.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the Summer months to enjoy the Balcony Menu that has now been launched. There is a busy Summer ahead with Cadet week, Moth Nationals, Kestrel Nationals, Hornet Europeans and Cadet Nationals as well as the regular Oppie Beach club.

Once again, many thanks to you all for your continued support.

Kind Regards
H
