Club Development / AGM Ideas

Another year has come and almost gone and we’re looking towards 2015. Last year we asked for ideas / suggestions that members wanted to be considered which might require raising at the AGM.

With the AGM not too far away, we ask you to do so again. Please provide any thoughts through the feedback form below or through the forum.

One thing to note is that many ideas do not require AGM discussion and can be picked up and worked on ‘in-flight’ through out the year. The Club Development forum has been set up for discussing such ideas on an on-going basis. Please use it! Alternatively, there is a Shotwick Lake Sailing Facebook group for general discussion.

As well as getting ideas in as early as possible, we’d like to ensure the ideas have had some exploration before the AGM. To enable this, we would like members to consider the following points.

Please raise ideas as soon as possible to enable some discussion before the AGM itself. Ideas raised before 7th January 2015 can be discussed at the next committee meeting with a view to helping develop them before the AGM;

Also, it would be good to discuss ideas with other club members to further develop them and get greater input before the AGM. To assist with this we have created an on-line forum where ideas can be shared and discussed. The forum can be found here – to access, you’ll need to register on the website. Please use it!

I joined the club in 2010 having just not long completed a RYA L2 training course elsewhere. Spent a year sailing casually on a Saturday before taking the plunge and starting racing in Autumn 2011 and never looked back. I've been a bit of a boat 'tart' considering I haven't been sailing long having owned a Topaz Magno, a Laser Vago, an RS Vareo and lastly a Laser 1. I've had the Laser for over a year which is a bit of a record for me in terms of boat ownership. I have recently joined the Club committee in order to help with running of the club - 'The more you put in, the more you get out'. Having come to sailing later on in life, I'm very keen to look to ways to support and encourage adults to enjoy the sport and to look at ways to bridge the gap from the end of an RYA L2 course to fully confident and competent sailing.
