BYC Spring Work Party
Message from Chris Cox - Rear Commodore House
Thank you to all the members and Cadets who supported the Spring Work Party.
Unfortunately, there were only 76 on Saturday and 59 on Sunday members in attendance, which is not really good when we have a total membership of 800 people.
We are a members owned club which rely on our members to perform much of the work required to our site and property.
For those members that did not attend, please make the effort to support the Autumn Work Party in October.
Again, thank you to all those members that did attend.
New Caterer at BYC
Effective Tuesday 31st March, Kim, who has worked for many years as part of our bar team, will be taking over the full responsibility for the day to day running of the kitchen, providing food to our members during the day times: both weekends and weekdays.
Kim will bring fresh new ideas and a selection of food choices. Obviously, these will take a few weeks to fully implement and Kim is open to suggestions from our members.
Please visit the club and support Kim in her new venture.
