Seavets Needs You: Situations Vacant. Honorary Secretary, Newsletter Editor and Committee Members.
Since Steve Fletcher is stepping up to be our next Chairman, we are in need of a new Hon. Secretary. As one of the four officers of our club, the Secretary's post is important, but not onerous, comprising chiefly of producing the agenda and taking minutes at committee meetings (4 times a year), and at the AGM, and some small administrative duties. Please contact Derrick for details.
After 10 years as the all-important newsletter editor, Tony Chandler is standing down from that office as well as from the committee after the AGM in March. He has produced 6 newsletters each year, so has totted up no less than 60 editions. Details from Derrick and/or Tony.
There are also two vacancies on the committee.
Race Event Entry Fees: Fees charged by many of our host clubs have been rising steadily for the last few years, to the point where we lose money on some events once we have bought prizes. While we will maintain our present level of entry fee at £15 at most events, at the following venues we will charge £17: Grafham, Whitwell, Bala and Stone S.C.

Winter Lunch 28th January 2017. We visited for the second year running the Bird In Hand at Knoll Hill

one of us enjoyed an excellent two or three course meal and we are indebted to Steve Fletcher for organising
this. An excellent pre-season get together with lots of news to exchange.
