FAST BOATS 

fast boats will be allocated a time slot to allow them to run without endangering the other models on the lake this time will be designated by the officer of the day.

Membership

Due to concerns among many of our members with regard to attendance at the lake on Sundays, it was stated that several members have not been to the lake on Sundays for the whole year and said it was not fair to potential new members who have been on the waiting list for sometime. The Committee initially did not agree with this as stated at the AGM but we have had to rethink this and have agreed that any member that does not attend at the lake on Sundays at all will render their membership to be reviewed and their membership could be offered to the next person on the clubs waiting list, reasons for total non attendance must be given to one of the Senior Committee for evaluation.  

 
Would all members please note that they should have their hazard warning lights on and not to go any faster than 5 MPH or go onto the grass when driving down the lane to the lake.

Please Note
Any Money that is to be paid to the Club for ANY REASON must be paid to the Clubs Treasurer, on no account will any Club Official accept Money from members
or anybody else, Also any queries regarding subscriptions etc the above also applies.
