First, Happy New Year to everyone! Now the festive period is over, its time to celebrate again with the Club Prize-giving for the 2017 season and enjoy our winter social. This year it will be held on:
Saturday 27th January commencing at 15.30 in the Kippford Village Hall
After introductions from the Commodore, the SYC 2017 presentation and the main prize giving, we will be holding our version of the “Great Scottish Bake Off”.
This will be a highly competitive sporting event and members are invited to bring along their baking sensations for “blind" judging by an expert panel, including a VIP guest judge, Councillor Davie Stitt, a great supporter of sport in the Stewartry and SYC in particular.
As far as entries are concerned, anything goes! Judging will consider nautical / sailing / SYC theme, appearance, presentation and such minor details as taste, texture and anything else the judges see fit! Use your creativity!
Valuable prizes will be awarded including highest place Cadet, with worst entry being suitably recognised! A Protest Committee will be on hand should any of the entries be suspected of outside assistance from the likes of M&S so beware!
Once concluded, there will be the opportunity to share and enjoy the fruits of the hard working entrants but everyone, please bring along a "bite to share”, savoury or sweet, (M&S, Tesco etc assistance welcome here!). Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available but if you want to bring anything stronger, please do. Please note, there will be no bar service. If time permits afterwards, we may have “party games” but promise, no boat-building this year!
Why not make a day of it? Between 1200 and 1400 the local RNLI Fundraising Committee will be holding their annual SOS lunch. For a small charge come and have lunch and most importantly, support the RNLI and then possibly, a brisk walk before returning for our event.
Best wishes and "get baking” to you all!
