Member's Quarterly Meeting - Save the Date

Members Quarterly Meeting
It seems it will be some time before we can hold a members meeting at the clubhouse, so a meeting will be conducted by Webinar on 17 November at 7pm.

This will be in the usual format with reports from the Commodore, Treasurer and Club captain and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any club matter.

You will receive an email closer to the meeting with a registration link.
