General Meetings
Tuesday 20th February 2018
8pm

The Club has been asked to update it’s Constitution by the SCA & RYA, to bring it into line with the Equality Act 2010 and to bring it into line with requirements for affiliation to these two organisations. The Committee has also taken the opportunity to update & clarify elements within the Constitution that have been noted by members since the last revision in 2009.

The purpose of the meeting above is to present this revised Constitution to the membership for discussion prior to taking a final copy to the AGM on 29th March for adoption.

Copies of the existing & proposed Constitutions will be available for collection from the clubhouse week commencing 12th Feb 2018 or can be viewed via these links.

JACKET FOUND

Happy New Year to you all. Hope 2018 brings you all that you need and want.

We have a Hogmanay mystery to solve and are looking for all the folk who saw in the New Year at the Club to take part.

Sort of like musical chairs, when the music stopped one of our members had no jacket to travel home in. His house and car keys were in the pocket. It had been hanging in the Members’ Lounge/ TV Room. Can you all check the cupboard under the stairs (note the Harry Potter reference) or wherever you hang your coats, to see if you have an extra black North Face jacket.

If you find it can you drop me a message at secretary@rwsabc.com and leave it with the bar staff in the clubhouse.

Hogmanay at the Club was another popular and good event. Thanks to the band for all the music, also to Liz and her helpers for working the bar.

Yesterday was the Annual New Year’s Day Swim, organised by Joe & Willie. There were 20 brave soles who ventured into the river and 6 kayakers providing safety cover for the bravest of them, who swam to Madeira Street and back. As well as those on the water there was a good crowd of spectators on the Esplanade. There are a lot of great photos from the event on the kayakers Facebook page.

On Friday at 6pm we are looking for volunteers to help take down Christmas. There might be left over biscuits and cake to sustain the workparty. All welcome.
