This is the first year we have asked members to volunteer in the Canteen. Thanks to everyone who has helped thus far – the toasties have been scrumptious. The Canteen Crew appreciates all of the help and has asked if the member on canteen duty can also assist with clean up and wash up at the end of the day. This will ease the burden on our regular Canteen crew and will be a huge help.
Also, it has been noted that in recent months the COTD/CoCOTD have not been sticking around after sailing to help pack up the club (think awnings, hoses, dollies, tables, chairs etc). This is part of the duties of the COTD/CoCOTD and has been overlooked recently. So, if you’re on duty, please make sure you schedule your afternoon so you can help with these end-of-day tasks.
Lastly, it is important that you make Mark Crowhurst or Dene Bergman aware of any gear which is missing/broken/faulty. As we saw on the weekend, is it critical that safety equipment is fully operational because when it is needed, it is needed! This applies to all members, at all times of the year. You do not have to be rostered on to find faulty gear. Safety is always our top priority so do not be afraid to suggest upgrades, improvements or changes which you feel may make the club a safer place.
Thanks to everyone for your understanding and assistance.
