HSSC update Friday 16th August 2019

From the CLUB SEC

Dear Members,

Pontoons - Members are reminded to take care on the pontoons. They can be slippery when wet and can be a trip hazard when screws become loose and protrude above the surface of the planks - we have a regular maintenance programme to keep on top of this issue.

Notice to Berth Holders - Weather Conditions - Over the past week we have had some very unsettled weather and berthholders are asked to be prepared and ensure boats are well secured with no loose equipment or covers.

WInter Lift Booking Forms and Pricing - Booking forms are attached or are available from the office. Please complete and return to the office to secure your winter lift for 2019/20.

Lost Spectacles - Anyone finding a pair of specs (varifocals) in a black Bolle case, please contact Geoff Goodwin on 07887 780595.

Junior Lifejackets Required - Do you have junior lifejackets surplus to requirements to fit age 10 and 7 years old? Please contact the office.

Fri 30 Aug Curry Evening - from 7pm All are welcome. We have taken a significant number of bookings already so please book in advance and let us know any special dietary requirements.

Sat 31 Aug Gin Night - from 7pm. Please book to secure your place. We will be tasting a range of different Gins with a variety of Fever Tree mixers to accompany. Price is £20 per person and includes canapés. If you are not a Gin drinker and want us to provide an alternative tipple for you just ask. There will be a Caribbean theme to the night for those who want to dress accordingly otherwise dress is casual.

Sat 14 Sep Battle of Britain Night - Open to all members and guests. This is a formal dinner evening with pre dinner drinks, 4 course meal and toasts. Please book early.

Coming up, Rugby World Cup - Dates and times of matches will be promulgated soon - watch this space!

Berthing Buddies - Those doubled up are reminded to please put boats back into their allocated berths and not leave boats in adjacent berths.

Waste Disposal - Please do not use the waste gash bins for the disposal of hazardous waste including waste oil. The Club has a facility to dispose of waste oil on behalf of members - if in doubt please ask. This week Biffa refused to empty a bin that contained paint and oil - please dispose of such items responsibly.

Your Health and Safety is Important to us! - Please report any H&S breaches or recommended improvements and please follow the Club's H&S rules and guidance. If in doubt ask.

Car Parking in FB3 - Please note that use of the car park is for use on Hornet or JSASTC business only. We are seeing members park in Hornet/JSASTC and walk on foot into Gosport. Please do not abuse this parking privilege.

If the car park in FB3 is full please use the over-flow that has been set up on the main hardstanding inside the wall.
Reminder to Carry Membership ID - Please remember to carry your in-date Club ID cards at all times and to show to security staff on request. New 2019 stickers are available through the Office or behind the bar. If you require us to post to you please contact the Office.
