Helpers Party (Not long)

The club could not put on the Annual Regatta nor the Class Nationals that come to Tenby Sailing Club every year without the willing band of volunteers.

As a thank you from myself the Commodore and the Committee we would like to invite all that helped to a gathering at the club on Friday 4th Oct. Food will be provided for all that helped and a drink to wash it down with. There will also be entertainment by the Llewellin Duo. So, look out for your invite in your inbox for all others there will be a nominal charge for the food.

Commodores Quiz

This year we are raising funds for a Defibrillator to be sited outside the club at the bottom of the stone steps by the big doors. Due to the location this will also have to be a heated cabinet, the defib will then be listed on the local network and will benefit the wider community and visitors alike as there will be a defib situated on the harbour. Due to the location the defib box will have to be a heated one for obvious reasons, and they carry the cost of £1300 complete.

The next quiz will be held tomorrow Sat 28th September at 1930 so come down the club and have a bit of fun while raising money for our Defib. Cost of the entry to the quiz is £5 for a team of up to six people or £1 if you think you can go it alone. There will be a league running for the whole year up to the final in November, you don’t have to be part of the league just come for a laugh whilst raising money. Alongside the quiz there will be a raffle, all prize donations will be gratefully received.
