September Newsletter

As the sailing season starts to draw to a close, we have a few events to draw to your attention, along with a request for help!

Events:

Working Party and Annual Dinner

On Saturday 22 October, we have a working party during the day, storing away everything for the winter. Many hands make light work, so do come down and lend a hand, as well as working up an appetite for the evening…..

…which is our Annual Dinner & Dance and Prize Giving. Arrive from 7pm ready to sit down for dinner at 7.30pm. This year our dinner is being catered by Café 51, so the food is sure to be good. The cost of the evening is £25 per head (with a reduced rate for children), and tickets can be bought in advance from Café 51 on Southwold High Street, or by emailing marielouisebell@hotmail.com.

 

After the meal there will also be a Disco until 11.30 so bring your dancing shoes!

Menu
Starter
Goats’ cheese mousse with roasted beetroot & crispy shallots
Squash, pea & chorizo salad

Main
Daube of beef with rich red wine sauce, bacon & mushroom with creamed mash potatoes
Fillet of cod with cream leeks & roasted potatoes
Moroccan marinated vegetable skewers with tzatziki , quinoa & green beans

Dessert
Apple & blackberry crumble & custard
Salted caramel chocolate torte with cream

Café 51 have asked for all menu choices by 15 October, so please ensure you have got your tickets before then. This is a lovely way to round of the sailing season, so if you haven’t been before, then do come along.

Children’s Christmas Party

We are also bringing back the Children’s Christmas Party this year, on the afternoon of Sunday 11 December. We’ll have party games, food, a roaring fire and a special visitor! More details to follow, but for now, get the date in your diary.

Social Sub-committee

Our Social Secretary Marie Bell is keen to organise a social sub-committee to help put together events for next season. For anyone interested, Marie will be hosting a discussion group at her house at 5 Mallard Road, Reydon on Wednesday 5 October at 7pm to put together a list of events for next year and to check that they don’t clash with other local events. If people are interested in coming along, then please email marielouisebell@hotmail.com

Committee Vacancies

Following our AGM earlier this month we have some key vacancies. As well as general committee members, the key roles of Commodore and Membership Secretary remain vacant. If you would like more info on these positions or feel you could help in any way with the running of the club, please get in touch via the email southwoldsc@gmail.com
