OPEN TO ALL MEMBERS, OF ALL AGES
You can submit up to 6 of your best photos. Please make sure that they arrive at the clubhouse by 1200 on Saturday 13th October. Maximum size: 20cm x 16cm (8" x 6"), unmounted and unsigned. A separate list of titles should be enclosed, together with your name.
Pictures of nautical subjects, very broadly interpreted, or scenes featuring water in any shape or form, are eligible, but landscapes or family snapshots (including family pets) are sadly not. Although the human form often enhances a composition, please don't submit recognisable portraits.
All the entries will be exhibited in the Games Room over the weekend, and there will as usual be an opportunity for members to make their choice of the photograph they would like to see on the cover of next year's Club almanac. Please remember that it's your responsibility to reclaim your photos from the Clubhouse after the exhibition; if you wish them to be returned by post, remember to include a stamped envelope with your entries.
Anthony Cullen has once again kindly agreed to judge the Competition, and he will joined this year by Tim Sandall. We are looking forward to hearing their comments and advice at the Prize giving on Sunday 14th October, at around 1400.
This is the last event of the season, please support it. There’s a great tankard for the winner
Why not sail for the Hapenny Cup on Saturday 20th October, in memory of the film. This is a time trial race with a difference. You predict how long you will take. The skipper closest to their prediction wins the fabulous Hapenny Cup tankard and there will be a BBQ at the club afterwards. The course starts and finishes at the PMSC start line, and is via Cork Sands yacht beacon.
A late addition to our social calendar is a talk by Julian Mustoe about his seven year single-handed circumnavigation in the wake of Charles Darwin's ship the "Beagle". Julian fitted out his boat "Harrier" here in Pin Mill prior to setting off and got as far as Chile where he became shipwrecked.
The Lucky Dip got as far as £400 before it was won.
Friday nights had brought a build up of excitement but also some speculation as to how far it should go. This was discussed at the June General Committee meeting and the decision was made that it should be capped at £500 which is a good sum of money to win. The draw will therefore continue each week until that £500 is won. However, the principle of a weekly contribution to the prize from the bar has to be maintained. Therefore, a second draw (in waiting) will receive the weekly bar contribution and when the £500 is won, the second draw will come into play at whatever figure it has then reached.
Good luck! and don't forget that you have to be in the Club on a Friday night at 9pm in order to have a chance to win.
The club is pleased to announce that we now have some wonderful PMSC mugs for sale, at the excellent price of just £6.00 each.
They are available for purchase from the clubhouse, so just pop in during opening hours.
