Just to remind you all that Saturday 9 November 2013 is RNLI Conwy Day. The Fun and Festivities go on virtually all day and start off with the Lifeboat Coffee Morning at the club to which you are all invited. Needless to say this is very worthwhile and all takings are donated to the Lifeboat. I can assure you that there will be all sorts of things going during this part of the event day and the Club Bar will of course be open as usual. Later on during the evening the Gallant Crew of our Lifeboat will all be present in the Club Bar affording us a fantastic opportunity to “Meet The Crew”. This evening is always really good fun with Dave Howard no doubt providing some entertaining anecdotes!!
Please do your best to come and join us all in support of our Lifeboat, Those who Crew it and those who give so freely of their time and energy to support the RNLI Onshore.
The next day Sunday 10 November is of course Remembrance Sunday. Those of us who wish to attend the Conwy Remembrance Service and Parade at Bodlondeb usually meet up at the Club by approx 1015 for Coffee/Tea prior to making our way, as a group, up to Bodlondeb to represent NWCC at the ceremony . On its completion it is not unknown for us all to return to the club to privately Toast the Fallen in a traditional Cruising Club manner! Following on from this, as you will be aware from our club programme, there is at 1330 a lunch laid on at the club for those that have booked for it. Regrettably this part of the event is already fully booked but the club will of course remain open for service to all members who wish to remain.
Last but by no means least re;events on this message, Saturday 16 November is our Aladdins Cave Market Day at the Club. This is an “Early Bird” Christmas Shopping opportunity not to be missed with all sorts of goods from Jewellery to French Garden Art to RNLI items for sale at absolute bargain “Once in a Lifetime” prices.
This event will also help our Club Funds because, with the exception of the RNLI, all stall holders will be contributing a percentage of their takings to the Club.
Needless to say refreshments will be available throughout the day and the bar will be open normal Saturday Hours.
Finally, if you have not heard via the grapevine, as from this Friday 1 November Elaine our Steward will be able to provide hot food over the bar during its opening hours. Initially we have aimed this to provide good quality Chicken Curry(with rice), Beef Hotpot(with Fresh Bread/Butter) and Vegetarian dishes at a cost of £4-50 each. There will also be Naam Bread, Baked Potatoes and hopefully a Pudding available at a small additional cost. You will I know all appreciate that because we do not know what the demand for this facility will be it is necessary for us to err on the side of caution in preparing these meals to avoid any financial risk to the club. For this reason it may well intially be that the prepared stocks fall short of what may be requested. Should this occur please do bear with us for a short while as the service develops.
Thats all from me for now. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
Yours in Sailing
