A small band of intrepid (or should that be insipid) daredevils have refitted the flag pole tonight. The painting of it was completed on Monday, so ahead of the Doors Open Days on the weekend of 13th/14th September we needed to get the pole back up.

The external redecoration is almost complete, only the refurbished balcony stairs to be painted. Volunteers would be welcomed to undertake the redecoration of the Members Lounge in the coming months.

For the first time in about five years one of the Club’s Jollyboats was “afloat” this evening for a short time.

Sprite was lifted down and launched to check how watertight she is, ahead of a decision about entering her in the Nith Raid from Glencaple to Whitesands in Dumfries. The 6 mile race is being run on the 27th September and is open to a number of classes of fixed seat rowing boats.

Anyone interested in the application that was submitted by Drum Properties should click on the following website http://www.inverclyde.gov.uk/terms-conditions-use and accept the terms and conditions. This will take you to a page where you can insert the application no. 14/0302/IC into the search box and it will pull up the application, all associated drawings and reports.

The Club has received a Neighbour Notification from Inverclyde Council. Comments by individuals should be forwarded to devcont.planning@inverclyde.gov.uk before 18th September. If there is anything you think the Club should comment on we would ask for this before our Committee meeting on Thursday 11th September.

All members are reminded that this event is taking place in Inverclyde on that weekend and that the Club is one of the venues.

Adam Graham was interviewed last week by Inverclyde Radio about the Club and its participation in the event. The interview can be heard at http://www.inverclyderadio.scot/Topics/doors_open_2014.html
