2014 AGM

FHYC hope you all have had a very good Christmas and an enjoyable New Year.

We are holding our 2014 AGM on Saturday 1st March in the clubhouse. The meeting will commence at 19:30, the bar will be open from 19:00. As I’m sure you all know, this is a very important event in the FHYC calendar and a full attendance by members would be appreciated.

As usual, part of the night will be devoted to the election of Flag Officers and a Committee for the forthcoming season. The nomination forms will be posted in the clubhouse over the next week or so. If anybody is interested in applying for any position or wishes to know more about the format then please reply via email or telephone me personally.

I have said many times in the 3 Degrees West magazine, that a club is only as good as it’s members’ and I sincerely hope the club goes from strength to strength. It does, however, require input from “the ranks” and a good and functional Committee. We can achieve this and would value your input, thoughts and actions.

Enjoy the 2014 sailing season, Reverie has been out on a couple of the tides this January and has enjoyed some rather good sailing. After all, that’s what it’s all about…………

Take care, see you 1st March
