Mrs Sheila Cotterell
We are saddened to inform you that Sheila Cotterell passed away last Friday, 5th January. Sheila was a very loyal supporter of the Club and regularly attended many of our social functions. She had been a Member for over 17 years.
The funeral is taking place next Friday, 19th January, at Truro Cathedral, 3pm. No flowers requested. The Club Ensign will lay at half mast as a mark of respect.
We have also been notified that Ian McMillan, who had been a Member up until December 2016, has also passed away earlier this week.
to our small team of volunteers who generously gave up their time to come in and help with painting and decorating various areas of the Clubhouse earlier this week – Michael Wright, Chris Williams, Ian Royston, Peter Flutter and Gary Tranter.
Please note the new Door Entry Code to the showers and toilets, which is now 0852
The WiFi access code will be changed to the same number with immediate effect.
A couple of our Blind Week Sailors are looking for dog sitters when they come here from 30 June – 6 July this year. If you think you may be able to help please contact the admin office for more details. Colin and Chris Drummond really enjoyed looking after the dogs last time but are unable to do it this year. The owners have 3 dogs but they can be separated if necessary.
The dogs in the picture are not the actual ones but I am sure they are just as lovely!
FILM NIGHT â€“ Friday 19 January at 8pm
The Club will be screening ARTHUR (1981). Starring Dudley Moore, Liza Minelli and John Gielgud. If you havenâ€™t seen the film – itâ€™s a Comedy Romance and the story of a Happy Drunk who stands to inherit a vast fortune but there are conditions â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦. A good opportunity to catch a classic film and enjoy a laugh at this dreary time of year! Bar and Catering available too.
QUIZ NIGHT â€“ Wednesday 24 January at 7pm
First quiz of the year so get your name down quicklyâ€¦..Grant Walker is our quiz host. If you have not been to a quiz night before it is a lot of fun. Just Â£1 per person to enter, the money then forming the quiz prize at the end of the evening. Suppers are available to order and there are also some nibbles during the first round of the quiz, free of charge.
WALK â€“ Sunday 28 January, 10am
This walk will be around the Penrose Estate and might be an opportunity for you to shed a few unwanted pounds and start out on the road to a slimmer self! If you havenâ€™t taken part before do come along itâ€™s a great way to meet other members. Currently there are about 24 members who walk a predetermined route of about 4 miles (or less), as a group, before heading back to the Club for a roast Sunday lunch, which is not compulsory but enjoyable none the less! Watch out for full details coming soon.
TALK â€“ Friday 2 February at 8pm
â€œImages of the Past â€“ the Legacy of a Falmouth Familyâ€
with Peter Searle
â€˜Falmouth Sunbeams racing past Cutty Sark in Falmouth Harbour, c. 1920sâ€™
The talk will be a short â€˜Who do you think you are?â€™ of Falmouthâ€™s Osborne family who were photographers for over one hundred years (of which some ninety were in Falmouth) and spanned four generations. Many local residents today still recall their visit to Osborneâ€™s for their studio portrait or â€œthat Mr Osborne took my weddingâ€ This will be followed by a showing of some of his favourite, interesting old photographs of Falmouth and the local area from the Osborne Family collection. Peter has given his talk before at the Poly and the Club is lucky to have booked him. The talk is sure to be illuminating!
TALK â€“ Friday 9 February at 8pm
â€œPiloting in Falmouth â€“ Tall Ships to Super Tankers”
with Alex Head
Following on quickly behind, the next talk will be given by Alex Head, who is a pilot at Falmouth. The Falmouth Port boasts one of the worldâ€™s largest natural deep water harbours and Alex will give us an insight into his experience both in his Merchant Navy and pilot careers.
As usual food and bar are open at 6.30pm and the talks starts promptly at 8pm. There is no charge for the talks.
