Dear All

Some dates and information about racing and activities below. First, saving the ODC


We are going all out to save the ODC, and need all members involved. How? Well, however you fancy, but here are some suggestions:-

Save Your Sailing Club Poster
-       This has been sent out to all members. Pass it on. Get it up in a local shop or club, etc, etc. Get the word out.

Petition to Save The ODC
-       The petition has also been sent out. See if you get get 10+ signatures. Return to Andy Monk or me (and I will pass it on). We want as many as possible.

Party On The Green, 5th June
-       Sunday, 5th June we will have a stand on the green by the Clockhouse. Tell your family and friends. Come and sign the petition in front of everyone and tell everyone else too! Come and help run the stand (Phil Wicks and Vic Smith are in charge, any volunteers email me or contact Phil / Vic direct).

Why are we doing all this? I think the answer is simple, but important. The more people who know about our plight the better. The more who express support the better. If and when the time comes we may need to show how united the village is in supporting our search for a new home. We want the council and press and parish council to know how much support we have, and to do that we need to show them!
