Newsletter December 2023
Hi HSC Members
Welcome to the last newsletter of 2023 !
Firstly a huge welcome to all of the new members that have joined since the membership books were reopened in October, we have already seen some of you at recent events and look forward to seeing much more of you in the coming months!! Thank you to the existing members who have welcomed our new members into the club. We are planning a New Members event in the spring to which all new members (joined in last 18months) and current members will be invited to meet each other and members of the committee for a reminder about the many varied aspects of the club.
This seems like an ideal opportunity to remember that our wonderful club is run by volunteers – we thought we’d have a go at working out the ‘man’ hours it takes but we lost count!!!
Its quite amazing that we have 720+ members and provide so much on a voluntary basis. The club can only run with the countless members that regularly give up their time….please think about how you can become part of this…could you be a Race officer, crew the safety boat, help with events, take a turn behind the bar, DIY help IT support or admin help to name but a few – its all totally essential !! Please contact us if you’d like to help! email@example.com
With so many members and methods of communication we need to think carefully so that you aren’t bombarded by messages, as Jim mentions below the All Members WhatsApp group will become the primary method of communication from 1st January and messages won’t be duplicated on other groups so please join the All Members group to avoid missing out.
We would also appreciate it if you could think carefully before posting messages in a club group – before asking a question maybe check the website – there really is an awful lot of information on there, it should answer a lot of your questions, even those you didn’t know you had !! If you have a question about an event check Webcollect too as that may answer your query…we’d just like to reduce traffic on these groups slightly so that important information doesn’t get missed !
All that remains is to thank you all for your support over 2023 and look forward to seeing you in 2024 for more fun on and off the water!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of our HSC family!
