Footy Captain’s ~ John Cadenhead has advised us that the next Footy open sailing event was due to have been the Cadenhead Trophy meeting at Southwater on September 28th. Unfortunately, due to the likelihood of them not being able to get enough people together to run this event on that particular day, it has been decided to reschedule the event to 30th November. Sorry for any confusion this may cause, but on the bright side, not so many of you will be on holiday at that time. The NOR and Entry Forms will be sent out in early November.
Ok now the Exceptionally GOOD NEWS.
Now that you have a free Sunday, Mike Mayhew, Chairman of Clevedon & District Model Boat Club, is very eager to take up the space and is prepared to help with the event with some of the member’s assistance as well!!! Thank you Mike
Even Better News ~ He has also said that he would like Clevedon to be a regular event in the Footy calendar. So I believe this is a wonderful chance to come and try out the lake and experience the clubs hospitality.
Footy’s are starting to become popular with local club members who are fascinated by their size and performance. Members have also invited Lawrence Hartley and I to display models at the Clevedon Festival and have also asked me to give a talk on Footy’s and Bottle boats at the clubs meeting in October.
I do hope you support me with your turn out to this event?
I have already had confirmations from a number of Footy Captains so this has the makings of a good day even more so with the excellent facilities by the lake.
Clevedon is reasonably close to most of you and very close to motorway connections being beside the M5.
All the usual details will be sent out as soon as I can get them typed up – Please put Clevedon in your diaries for 28th September.
