Help required for evening series
Posted: Tuesday, 20 April, 2010
As it is not possible to roster race officers and recorders for Wednesday evening racing, volunteers are required to carry out these duties. There is a list on the noticeboard in the club giving the dates of the racing. If you are able to help, please put your name on the list.

Please e-mail the office with details of anything you believe has been mislaid at the club. This season, items left in the changing rooms will be put in the scran bins after each weekend. The scran bins will be emptied monthly. Smelly socks and knickers will be binned. Other items will be catalogued and stored for a further 6 weeks. If unclaimed, they will be disposed of. Please don’t regard the changing rooms as your personal season-long storage area. There just isn’t enough space! WYC

WORKING PARTY HEROES
Posted: Monday, 15 March, 2010
A huge thank you to everyone who turned up on Saturday to help out. It definitely was the Club at its best.......we even ran out of chilli there were so many of you (sorry about that!). It has made such a huge difference and we have saved a lot of money not having to pay for professional help which leaves more to spend on the important things. What a great start to the season! See you all on the water. WYC
