Wanted – Bar Stars – A Special Message from DutyMan
As you all know, the TEYC has a team of volunteer Bar Stars who work tirelessly to serve our drinks, stock our fridges, wash our glasses, and listen attentively to all our tales of sailing derring-do.  Without these selfless souls, our club nights and special functions would be far less enjoyable for us all.  “How can I do my bit?” I hear you say.  I’m glad you asked…

It will soon be time to draw up the Bar Star rotas for 2019.  If you would like to be added to the rota to run the bar on occasional Friday evenings, and possibly volunteer for ad-hoc Club functions, please reply to the latest TheWeekAhead email to let me know.  Naturally, training will be given, although the job is so simple even the Rear Commodore can do it.


Now please see below for details of this busy week’s activities at The TEYC…

MONDAY: 18:45 – 20:00 & 20:15 – 21:30
TUESDAY: 18:30 – 19:45 & 20:00 – 21:15
WEDNESDAY: 09:30 – 10:45
Please book your place by contacting Sarah (see TheWeekAhead email for details): price: £6.

19:30: TEYC At Home The bar will be run by Dawn Burgess and Dave Sporle
The annual @Home is where we invite our local MP Sir David Amess, the Mayor of Southend, and flag officers and members from other local clubs to the TEYC for drinks and we also lay on a buffet.  If you are able to help with the preparation of the buffet could you please let Carol Manning know (see TheWeekAhead email for her address), as this is a lot of work and any help will be greatly appreciated.  Please please try to attend this event and show the other clubs how well we support our own club.

The tension is mounting for the eagerly awaited Firework Spectacular at the TEYC, to be held this year on Saturday 10th November.  Fireworking will commence immediately after the pier fireworks.  We are opening at 18:00 and advise early arrival to avoid the seafront traffic associated with the aforementioned pier fireworks.  See the email for all the details.
