Annual General Meeting 6th March 2022

Here's a short summary of the main points we covered at the meeting:

Committee Elected -

  • Chairman - John
  • Secretary - Eve
  • Treasurer - Norbert
  • Membership Secretary - Darren
  • Welfare Officer - Graham
  • Committee Members - Andy Pepper, Dave x 2, Mike, Gabrielle, Angela

Subscriptions - same rates as last year, but without Covid discounts - ie. £125 individual, £180 family & various other categories

Membership stands at 124, up from 85 last year. Yes, really!

Stand-Up Paddleboarding - temporarily suspended due to United Utilities' ban. We hope to turn this around, but it could be May or June before we can permit SUPs once again and then only if UU can be suitably influenced. Indications are encouraging.

Filming of the Ridley detective drama for ITV is proving very beneficial to the Club's finances. We hope to begin spending some of this income over the next 18 months, though will be wary of spending too much on infrastructure improvements until we negotiate a new lease with UU. Top priority is a replacement boiler and we hope to improve the car park surface too. Another proposal is for a permanent container store to replace the temporary one used during filming - this will release space in the clubhouse.

We ran through our likely programme of events for 2022.

We've done some minor tidying up of the Club Rules.

We have a new YouTube Channel - details now emailed to members - contact is Graham.

Plan to be up Sat afternoon for beer, BBQ and camp overnight. Might even pluck up the energy to go out on the water :-)

Great time at Fleetwood. Just Eddie, me & a kitefoiler. Beach start, hook in, planing, straps, single reach 2 miles to Wyre light. Gybe, then back & repeat. So that was 8 miles in the 1st 20 minutes!

John L - 07/08/2022 - 07:34

Graham is coming too, so that’s at least 3 of us.
