Future of racing
Lawson reported on the meeting after the first winter series race. OD rota had been sorted and a further meeting mooted for the
final Sunday of the series to discuss the summer incentive being a mini-xmas
party ie mince pies etc. Confirmed
that outsiders were welcome to compete in the series. The series would be a
morning handicap race followed by a pursuit race on a sliding handicap basis in
the afternoon (since then this has been transformed in to an afternoon series
with a sliding handicap whether pursuit or handicap by popular vote on the
day._) 4 results to count from the
8 race series
Dinghy park work day
2nd Dec 11am canoeists would be welcome.
AGM Membership fees - no need
to raise them. 1st Feb
is the date. Money in the bank is
c.10K but earning no interest. Various
ideas as to suitable accounts to put it in to raise interest income. Andy
offered to enquire of Arnside, Lydia will sort out website info for Martin.Money
who gives advice.
Anti-slip jetty surface current surfacing was failing and there was no point
in relaying the same. Paint and
small mesh stuff was suggested Derek to investigate via a jetty builder.
Health and Safety Pete enquired of the KSA policy on heart attacks! What is our best evacuation route do ambulances know our
postcode and do WE know it? Queried
whether service station or sailing club shoreline was easier evacuation
route up grassy slope to service centre was likely to be more problematic than
ambulance access to slipway at KSA. Agreed
to install a written notice to members (visible through window from outside)
with Grid reference and post code so that they can inform emergency services.
Geoff undertook to do this.
AGM - It was felt that we should
request a windsurfing and canoeing report at this AGM since they were equal
partners in the KSA. Geoff will
invite appropriate representation. Ian
also asked for help to stuff envelopes at the work day.
Water report the long and winding road continues!
We have paid 2.5K for our access to the new freshwater supply which will
be going live this year. Bendrigg
got switched on today. Plumbing
will be needed which Geoff will sort out in time for the imminent switchover.
It is a private supply so we are responsible for any damage eg bursts.
Metering will have to be installed
Septic tank aka Klargester- new bloke was now in situ instead of previous
and we would ask him for advice about its rapid filling and the alarm problems.
The sensor was presumably knackered and needed sorting with full NBCD gear a
volunteer to descend into the pit was sought to no avail
Pete enquired of the possibility of a sound dampener for the main room since it
was difficult to hear. Lots of
discussion but eventually the likely cost and cleaning maintenance made the
decision to be NO.
Open meetings for 2007
3000 for one of the days 23/24 june
RYA youth squad trg for a day no fee to be charged but check insurance
enquiry was made if anyone knew of cheap accommodation eg service station hotel
but thought to be a boring place to spend the night!
Thorns hall or the Bull in
Sedbergh might be approached
Family club Pete enquired whether it would be all right to set
something up to encourage more kids. Approved.
Apparently several adults interested in running it.
Pete will follow up on this interest
Store Geoff expressed concern that it was being used as a dumping ground eg
buoyancy aids Rob Blair explained that they had been offered to club
shame to turn them down. Geoff
offered to provide weights to get them tested
sails had been kindly donated by Paul and Lydia and it kept this good set out of
general circulation for leisure use.
had been placed there to wash wetsuits in by Pete
Security alarm our callout had been downgraded due to power outage causing
clock to be out of synch. Is it
worth it? Are there insurance
implications? Can we upgrade to a
fully serviced contract whereby these problems get fixed for us?
Andrew to investigate insurance and contracts.
OF NEXT MEETING WEDNESDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 7.30PM
IT IN YOUR DIARIES NOW.
