Contribution to the Club
As well as paying a subscription, all members are expected to play an active part in some aspect of Club life, at the very least by assisting with race organisation up to four times a year. The success of the Club depends entirely upon the commitment and enthusiasm of its members. In reality the number of duties varies depending upon which duty you do, Race Officer, Assistant RO (no experience necessary), galley and bar come round about three times per year, whilst safety boat crews do between three and four duties per year.
There are spring and end-of-season Work Parties (usually April & October) to tidy the grounds and prepare for the season or winter. Members muck in with all sorts of jobs ranging from tree lopping to tidying up the container or clubhouse. Any and all help given is much appreciated.
are the benefits of membership?
All members are issued with a key and they have access to
the clubhouse and lake every day of the year, subject to observance
of the Club Rules. These rules are simple and as non-restrictive
as possible. Many of our members use the premises for a 'day
out' with a picnic or barbeque. There is a kitchenette in
the clubhouse which is always open, as are the social areas
and changing facilities.
The Membership Secretary will always be pleased to give
information over the phone, but potential members are encouraged
to visit the club on any Sunday to obtain fuller details -
that way they can also meet other members and appreciate the
club atmosphere. Temporary membership may be granted whilst
formalities are being processed.
