Evening All! as it looks like this cruise is going to be a big one I Just thought I'd post up how were going to be handling the launchings etc on Saturday.

Our setting down area and car park is relatively small and gets congested quite quickly on busy days such as this one, therefore upon arrival myself or Tom will be looking to unhitch your boat and move it with the Tractor down onto the foreshore as quickly as possible, once your boats there you can take as long as you like to take straps and towing gear off/ kit up etc.
Bill is going to be in charge of overseeing the parking of the tow vehicles, 4x4's can park on the grass verge and 2wd will be parked around the perimeter of the car park. This way we can easily accommodate everyone.
It looks like there is approx. 25+ ribs to launch and all for 10am, so we will be looking to start launchings just after 9am. Gary will be in the water undoing winch straps and ensuring your safely afloat, John will be assisting hitching and unhitching trailers higher up on the foreshore, this way me and Tom can go as quickly as possible with the Tractors. Most people prefer to be in the boat during launching which requires us to go deeper with the trailer for it to float off and not risk grounding the hull, if you prefer to be out the boat and therefore have a shallower launch, just let us know. Think I've spoke to most who are coming over on Friday and leaving there boats but just a reminder to give us a ring en-route if your eta is going to be after 7pm. Wish you all a safe journey here, need anything i'm on 07917859345. Chris.
PS: May I be the first to say well done to Nick for organizing this one, think you've done a very thorough job! if i'm still standing by 8pm i'll get you one in!

Last List before the Big Day

Well here is the last list and PD has just made it! There is plenty of food available I am told the hog roast will feed 60 easily so any late comers will be most welcome. Just a reminder the evening do is upstairs at the Old Market Hall. The stairs are on the right as you go through the door. Meal tickets are available on the door at 12.50 each and food will be available from 8pm.

Thanks Chris for the parking and launching instructions.

Looking forward to meeting you all and have a great day!

Nick

Rocky will roll up at 9.59 am and be back at 10.59 am. Hardly seems worth it!

Might see you all in the afternoon, as waiting for a fuel pump.
