HSSC update Friday 14th September 2019

From the CLUB SEC

Dear Members,

Tonight is Battle of Britain Night - Restaurant is closed this evening. For those attending the dinner start time is 1900 with pre dinner drinks, followed by a formal dinner. Dress is Black Tie or Jacket and Tie with miniature medals.

Forthcoming Evenings:

Wine Tasting Evening - 1900 on Fri 11 Oct 19 in the main bar/restaurant. The event will introduce some new and interesting wines we are proposing to add to our wine list. The cost is £20 per person and includes canapés on completion of the tasting session. Please book your places.

Trafalgar Night Dinner on Fri 18th Oct at 1900 - this is a hugely popular event and is restricted to one full member and a guest. Any additional guests will be put on the reserve list. Price is £28 per person. Please book early to avoid disappointment.

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 do have a regular maintenance programme to keep on top of this issue. Some MOD pontoons on 'Fieldhouse' and 'I' pontoons are in a poor state with temporary repairs being carried out - JSASTC are expecting some pontoon replacements in October and further details will be published when known. In the meantime, take extra care.

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

Coming up, Rugby World Cup - First matches start on Fri 20th Sep Fixture List is attached.

Logs for burning - We still have some logs to give away - I you require any logs please contact the marina staff.

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 - If the JSASTC car park this side of the wall is full then please use the over-flow that has been set up on the main hardstanding inside the wall. The car parks are for use by members on Club business; if you have business in Gosport then please park in the Town centre.
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.
