19th Thur Committee Meeting
2nd Thu Club night at the Kings Head Rudgwick.
16th Thu Committee Meeting
Due to several of your committee members having prior engagements, April’s committee meeting was cancelled. Only 2 events took place in April.
Club night was attended by 12 members. Lots of discussions took place ranging from why some peoples newsletters were going to their spam accounts, the rise in the price of fuel and the war in Ukraine. Watch out No10, C.M.C is on the case.
The second event was the April Fool Navigational Scatter, last round of the 2021/2022 Navigational Scatter Championship. Yet again only 3 crews entered. Unfortunately one crew had to withdraw their entry at the eleventh hour due to Covid. At the start the 2 remaining crews agreed the event should run as Bob and myself had put out all the code boards that morning. Allan and Paul Brown won the event, followed by Jon and Graham Rapley. The final position of the championship have been worked out and can be seen in this newsletter. Bob and I are prepared to organise next year’s championship, it would be nice to see more competitors taking part.
On a sad note, Bob was notified of the death of Richard Wapshott, an old club member. Richard (Dick) was an active club member during the 1980/1990. He was teamed up with Paddy Parker who along with myself organised the Dan Clare Scatter for several years. Bob and I attended his funeral on behalf of the club last Thursday (28th).
On a final note, watch out for invites from other clubs published in the Newsletters. It may give you a chance to compete, Marshal or just spectate on other events outside of this club.
