Firstly, a very big thank you to the many members who turned up for the working bee last Saturday to clean all the dust and move all the equipment around the clubhouse to enable the carpet to be laid in a dust free environment. Given how good the renovation is looking, the Executive Committee have taken the opinion that the tiles in the entrance foyer let all the work upstairs down horribly. Possibly this was an oversight, however I’m happy to report that these tiles will be removed this Saturday and new tiles, more sympathetic to the overall interior design, laid the following week. These last-minute changes require co-ordination and I am thankful to Brian and Lisa for accepting the decision of the executive and moving extremely swiftly in accommodating this request. We had at least 50 members turn up throughout the day those who hadn’t seen the renovation previously were extremely impressed with what has occurred.
For those OTB sailors wanting to know if they can go sailing from the club, the simple answer is YES, however you must:
- Come dressed to sail and return home the same way.
- There is still no organised racing or club events until further notice.
- The clubhouse and change rooms remain closed until further notice.
As soon as anything changes regarding the club running organised events and races all members will be notified ASAP. We will be having another Working Bee on the 13th June (see details below) so hope to see plenty of you at the club then.
