Hi HSC Members,
We have nearly made it to the end of this crazy year and we hope that everyone has managed to navigate the last few months safely and healthily. With a bit of luck, 2021 will be a bit easier.
Thank you to all who attended our first ever virtual AGM at the end of November, the meeting went very smoothly and your new Committee is now in place and ready to get cracking sorting another fun year at HSC.
Looking ahead, we are beginning to discuss member training needs at the club, we are considering everything from RIB handling refreshers to kayak/SUP coaching. Also, now that we have a really great hire fleet, we would very much like to build a youth programme for our younger members so we can get everyone out on the water. We will be contacting you all in the new year to establish more detailed requirements of your training needs. Let's see if we can work together and build an all inclusive programme for everyone, the infrastructure is there, we just need the ideas and the volunteers!
Thank you those who completed the watersports survey, over 40 of you responded and it has enabled the Sailing and Watersports teams to start work putting together a programme packed full of racing, paddling and social sorties for next year. We really hope that there will be something for everyone in the line up. The programmes will be launched in the New Year, when we kick off the big volunteer sign up process once more so keep an eye on your in boxes.
We haven't finished the year at HSC yet however, we still have two events for you to enjoy, one wet and one dry.
THE VIRTUAL QUIZ IS BACK!!!
Following the great success of our last Virtual Kahoot Quiz, our wonderful quiz mistress, Ms Melanie Blackman, has offered to host another quiz for us all.
Just like last time all you need is an ipad, tablet or laptop with the capability to run Zoom plus a smartphone for "fastest finger first" round (via Kahoot). You will also need a pen and paper plus a name for your team. There is no need to set up any accounts or passwords, it is all very easy.
Quiz Night will be Monday evening 21st December, start time 7pm.
Please contact email@example.com if you fancy giving it a go and Janet will send you the link. Oh and apparently Christmas themed outfits are obligatory..... well top half anyway.
Hope you can make it, last time was a real laugh plus someone needs to try and put Parasite Eve in their place ....
LAST FROSTBITE RACES OF THE YEAR....
... this Sunday 20th December, start time 10:30....
...and the weather is looking pretty good at the moment, the long range forecast is sunny, 10 degrees and a southwesterly F2-4. Sounds like the perfect way to end the racing year. MSC are laying the course, and HSC are running the racing from the balcony. Hope to see you on the start line.
