Dollie management....

Secretary

The club is aiming to fix the dollie situation.

If you have a dollie in the clubhouse, make sure it clearly identified (e.g. painted a special colour or labelled, etc, etc).  Better still, if you aren't on the ground floor, think about taking it home over the next few weeks and using one of the club's aluminium dollies as they are being commissioned.

The idea of the club dollies is that they will all have the same solid wheels and nest properly on the racking.  It also means the logistics of getting in and out of the water is easy - grab the closest clearly identifiable DBSC dollie.

While it is perfect to arrive at the club precisely at 1pm for the briefing, then rig your Laser and get changed, and be in the water by 1.30pm it doesn't leave a lot of time to properly deal with a dollie wheel that falls off or is flat.

If a wheel falls off a dollie, or has a flat tyre (we don't have all solid wheels yet), try to fix the problem rather than leaving it aside.  The Centre of Engineering Excellence has a supply of wheels and you can always find a split pin.  Additionally, make sure the axle fits the wheel and is not to large or problems develop.

PS: The last two weeks have seen wheel-less dollies on the beach and wheels floating in the water or left in the park.
