For those of you unable to get about the Club and who are not on Facebook, the new Boathouse on the beach is now finished and handed over to the Club for internal fit-out.

Thanks to this incredible donation by Ogilvie Homes we now have a great facility in which to store boats and equipment.

Sporting Convenors will be discussing and agreeing the final internal layout, but it is ready for use right now. One of the Skiffs and the Club RHIB have already been moved in.

If you look above your head when you next sign out a boat there are keys on very big key fobs. Have a look around but remember to turn the key once to dead lock it on the way out and return the key to where you got it.

Formal handover will be agreed with Ogilvie Homes, at which we would appreciate a good turnout by the Members to show our appreciation.

To help pass those dark winter evenings the Club will be running some Movie Nights in the Hall using the data projector & big screen. The first of these is this Sunday at 4pm.

The MPLC License does not let us publicise the movie name on open websites or social media sites, only within the clubhouse. There are notices up now advising what the movie will be. I can say it might relate to two gentlemen trying to get home for Christmas using various forms of motorised transport.

There may be tickets that come available in the next couple of weeks, so it might be worthwhile adding your name to the waiting list.

All monies raised from the ticket sales will go towards the ongoing fundraising for a Publicly Accessible Defibrillator, to be fitted to the outside of the clubhouse. There will be an article in the Greenock Telegraph in the coming week highlighting our fundraising efforts over the last few months. Your purchase of tickets for this event will add greatly to this worthwhile cause and demonstrate our club’s ongoing involvement with the local community.

Due to the increasing popularity of this event and the potential for overcrowding on the night, the Management Committee has taken the decision to limit the numbers and ticket the event this year. All the proceeds from the ticket sales will go towards the ongoing fundraising for a Publicly Accessible Defibrillator, to be fitted to the outside of the clubhouse.

The list will be available from 3pm this afternoon.

In order to make the process a bit fairer we have a few Terms & Conditions.

1. Tickets are £5.00 per adult/child. Inclusion on the list will only be made when payment is received. (If your child takes up a seat then they need to be paid for)

2. Members are restricted to 6 tickets each, including themselves.

3. Member buying the tickets must be present on the night to sign in their guests

4. If, after you have purchased your tickets, you find you cannot attend, please let us know and we will attempt to resell them to members on the waiting list.

5. We will have a Waiting List running, so if you want up to another four tickets add your name to that too.

6. There will be no seat allocation, so if you have a preferred location it would be advisable to get down early. Club opens at 6:30pm.

Couple of points of note.
a. No children are allowed in the Bar.
b. The Bar will close between 11:50pm and 00:10am to allow the bar Staff to see in the Bells
