Club Open Weekend

This year’s open weekend will be over the weekend of 14th & 15th May. It’s never too early to start talking about this because it’s a major annual recruitment event. We really need to introduce some youngsters to Aquarius and any ideas to this end would be gratefully received. I’ve already been in touch with station manager at Radio Jackie who has agreed to broadcast some publicity for us in the run up to the weekend. I will also have posters and fliers available in good time, plus newspaper adverts.

What I need you guys to do is distribute this PR material in good time and talk to friends and family about the weekend. Encourage them to come down and bring their friends. Posters and hand outs should be put in your local shops, schools, libraries and anywhere else that you can think of. Scout, Sea Scout and Guide groups in your areas should specifically be targeted. Let’s see if we can get a record number of people down to the club (and afloat) this year.

2005 Membership/Mooring Fees and Programme

Those of you that were at the AGM will know that AQSC's membership and mooring fees are to remain at 2004 levels. The 2005 programme has now been put together and, on payment of annual fees in April, a copy will be sent to you.
