What's On

Work Weekend CORONA UPDATE

Starts: 10am

PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THE CORONA OUTBREAK THERE WILL BE NO WORK PARTY GATHERING. THOSE WHO ARE NOT ISOLATING MAY STILL COMPLETE TASKS AT THE CLUB ON THEIR OWN AT ANY TIME. PLEASE CONTACT GLYN OR VIC FOR JOB INFO.

A work party usually takes place on the first full weekend of the month. Occasionally these are moved e.g for New Year, Easter, the Rally.

Please come along and lend a hand as we can only keep fees low by everyone participating and helping out with chores. A jobs list is sent by email to all SPBC recipients a few days before the event.

Work usually starts about 10am. Tea and coffee is provided FOC and on Saturday, a lunch is often provided at a nominal charge.

There is nearly always a social get-together on the Saturday evening of the work party. This may be an organised event or a Free'n'Easy night where folk just gather for a drink and a natter.

We hope you can join us at the next work party weekend.

Committee Meeting CORONA UPDATE

Starts: 2pm

DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK THERE WILL BE NO FACE-TO-FACE COMMITTEE MEETINGS. COMMITTEE COMMUNICATIONS WILL BE VIA EMAIL. Please contact secretary@southpennineboatclub.co.uk if you have any issues to bring to the attention of the committee.

Committee meetings are held in the clubhouse on the Sunday of the work party at 2pm. Observers are welcome. An agenda for the meeting and the unratified minutes from the previous meeting are available on the noticeboard - or ask the Secretary.

 

2021 AGM

Sunday 28 March 2021
Starts: 2pm

The 2021 SPBC AGM is scheduled for Sunday 28th March.

It is unclear at the moment if it will be possible to hold this in the clubhouse, however the nominations process is going ahead and members will receive details with their February edition of the Handspike magazine.

If restrictions prohibit the holding of the AGM in the clubhouse, them it is proposed that the simple voting business (e.g. minutes, accounts, fees) will be conducted online/ by post as last year.

 

Easter Cruise 2021 (thwarted again!)

Saturday 3 April 2021 - 6 April 2021

 

As we are not allowed overnight stays on our boats until April 12th, the easter Cruise is once again cancelled. Hopefully if the weather is nice we might be able to go out for a day-trip over Easter.

We are still hopeful of being able to hold the club cruise to York though. See the Ouse Cruise item.

May Ouse cruise

Friday 14 May 2021 - 23 May 2021

Navigate the Ouse to York (and maybe on to York) with our CruiseMaster, Dennis. Dennis has been up and down to York since God was a boy, so you couldn't have a better guide.

Dennis has spoken to the lock-keeper at Selby and the best date to go to Naburn is Monday May 17th at about 10.30 a.m.

Please let Dennis know if you would like to be included in the SPBC club booking for the lock on 17-5-21 or email social@southpennineboatclub.co.uk

Make your own way to Selby -2-3 days cruise from SPBC. Return lockings can be booked once a plan emerges for onward travel etc

Mikron had to cancel their performance at SPBC (and all their ither performances) in 2020.

They hope to return in October, but we need to comfirm the date. watch this space.

Hope springs eternal! We have booked Joe-James Thomas to entertain us at the 2021 Christmas Party.
