April Working Party

CSCC Working Party

Sunday 28th April – 2pm onwards

This is a great opportunity for us to make the Club clean tidy and welcoming to the Hasler Race event coming soon.

  • We need much grass cutting (bring your own mower if you wish and a strimmer).
  • Boat trolleys can be put in a tidy pile in the South East corner. Boats on trailers can be put in tidy lines. Some very scruffy boats, making the place look unkempt; need a good wash & brush up.
  • Steps and slab surrounding the jetty steps need resetting.
  • Ideas for revising the hanging facilities in the buoyancy shed would be welcome. Please lease with Jane.
  • Total revision of the SUP storage system is needed; ideas please. Please liaise with Cathy.
  • Our ‘Painting Officer’ Julie may care to issue directions for further external painting.
  • Doors and other timber items, adjacent to the bonfire site, need dismantling and sorting into useful, rubbish for burning and non combustible. (The external refuse skip should be onsite before the event).
  • Polo goals shall be moved to clear the area for visitor boat parking. It may be advantageous to clear the area between shed 9 & 10 (OOD Shed) of boats and KataKanus to allow for visitor boat parking.
  • Changing rooms to be cleaned
