Commodore’s Notes 23rd July 2014

If a week is a long time in politics, it is very short in Budworth!!
As I cheerfully ‘penned’ last week’s Commodore’s Notes, I remained blissfully unaware that in fact I should have been bringing you news of a new Saturday Captain!!! Therefore let me put the record straight, immediately, and let you know that Paul Foden, the Treasurer, has offered to look after the Saturday Sailors as well. So, first and foremost, a big “Thank you” to Paul for ensuring that Saturday sailors now have a voice.
Also, Wednesday Midweek Finale in on AUGUST 27th (not as in the handbook).
Lots more so please read the full article [read more...]
