Talks, Walks, Dinners and much more……
A reminder of our next talk on Friday 10 February entitled “All about Sails” by Nick Head, manager of SKB Sails in Penryn. Come along and find out all there is to know and pick up some interesting tips and advice at the same time. The following afternoon (Saturday 11 February) there will be a visit to the Sail Loft. The talk will commence at 8pm (small charge of Â£2.50 to attend), and suppers are available from 6.30pm.
John Head’s talk on Friday 17 February, ‘Farming in the 1990s’, is extremely popular with over 60 people signed up so far. His reputation of being extremely funny is obviously well known! Bookings are still being taken at the moment but please be aware that seating will be in the Lower Deck or Bar area and we will have to close the list soon.
Men’s Dinner and Ladies Dinner
We are pleased to welcome back Commodore Jamie Miller CBE Royal Navy Regional Commander as our Guest Speaker at the Men’s Dinner on Friday 10th March. Some of you will remember when he was Guest Speaker at our Dinner back in 2010. Needing little introduction, Commodore Jamie Miller has a long and distinguished career and is an excellent speaker; he is described as being ‘disarmingly charming’.
Meanwhile, the ladies are set to be entertained by Hilary Keam, a retired Primary School teacher, who has been writing and performing her own Cornish Dialect poems for the past forty years. She was very proud to be made a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh in 2010, and her Bardic name is ‘Degor Hwarth’, which means ‘Bringer of Laughter’. Hilary is in constant demand to entertain various organisations throughout the County, and she uses the presentations of her poems and ‘yarns’ to raise money for Cornish Charities.
The lists for both of these dinners are now up in the bar, and the menu will be advertised next week. Both dinners are ‘formal’ (black tie/cocktail dress).
Our next regular Quiz Night is on Wednesday 15th February with Peter Hackett as Quiz Master. There is a charge of Â£1 per person to enter the quiz, which forms the prize money at the end of the evening. Suppers available to order, free nibbles during the first round. Everyone welcome!
New Â£10 Sunday Carvery… A crackling great success!
Members’ reactions to the new Sunday Carvery were generally excellent judging by comments from a total of nearly 70 people who came last Sunday. Having tucked into roast pork and roast beef with all the trimmings, Members were buzzing with compliments such as “Brilliant”, “Fantastic meat”, “Great atmosphere and service”, “Good value”, “Well done Brian and Tasha!”. A few teething problems will be ironed out (warmer plates next time) but otherwise the Team look forward to welcoming you to the next Carvery on Sunday 12 February. Remember it is only Â£10, fortnightly, and makes Sunday lunch simple, delicious and fun. Advanced booking would be very much appreciated by calling 01326 311105 or signing the events book in the bar.
Screening is at 8pm
No charge to attend.
Suppers available from 6.30pm if desired.
