RCYC and RNSA Meet at Fowey 29/30 April
Well done if you spotted the mistake in last week’s newsletter – the subject heading was incorrect in reading 29/30 May – the Fowey meet is next weekend, 29/30 April !
Our traditional and always popular first meet is at Fowey over the first May Bank Holiday. I have booked a reserve pontoon but as there are a number of other meets at Fowey over that weekend we do not know which one it will be yet. I have asked for the pontoon to be designated from the Friday for those of you planning on arriving early.
On Saturday we shall have a pre-dinner pontoon party – weather permitting. I have then arranged for us to dine ashore at Fowey Gallants at 1930. Menu attached here – please let me have your choices asap. We will not commit until the Wednesday before when hopefully we will have a good idea of the weather but I need your choices and the numbers attending well before then please.
Any cancellations after we have committed on the Wednesday may have to pay for their ordered dinner. There is very little scope for ‘drop ins’ so if you don’t book your meal then you may not get fed if you just turn up.
Numbers intending to go and menu choices asap please. Thank you!
