Presentation Evening – Friday 21st October

Good afternoon,

As the end of the season draws near, and a fantastic season it has been, I can now give you more details about our Presentation Evening.

It is once again at Cowes Community Club, on Friday October 21st. The first thing you will notice is the increase in the cost of the meal. I have spoken to John and unfortunately the cost of everything has gone up. Recently whilst in Cornwall, we paid £17 for fish and chips in a pub. For £20 we are getting a 3 course meal, with tea/coffee and mints and the meal we had last year was excellent. I do hope the price of the meal will not put people off.

I am sending you the menu and need your choices, with money by Friday October 7th at the very latest. I will leave some menu choices in our Clubhouse. I do need your choices written down; please do not tell me over the phone as this can cause mistakes!! Payment can be cash or cheque in a named envelope, or direct payment to Cowes Medina Account.

I met with Mark Baker and Steve Lewis this morning, and Mark has agreed to order all the trophies we need, (at least 28). It is now time for all captains to contact Mark with their choices. Please do so by September 12th at the latest. The captains also need to make it clear to Mark what the award is for.

Steve has the task of collecting in all the cups presented last year. If you are in possession of one, can you please return it to Steve as soon as possible.

Netty Smallman and Carol Wootton have offered to run the raffle on the night. Any donations for this raffle can be given to them in advance, or brought along on the evening.

I am delighted to let you know that Margaret Rylands has agreed to present the trophies. She was thrilled that we asked her!

I am always optimistic that we will have a great turn out! Let’s make it an evening to remember … it has been a marvellous season and let’s celebrate that in style!

Any questions please call me.
