My first event, the Sailing Officers' Dance on
24th November was great. I hope all who attended enjoyed it as much
as I did. I was presented with the Chain of Office and I wore it all
night - I like a bit of 'bling' as many of you already know and I
shall be wearing it as often as I can! We were joined by some of my
family and friends namely the Taylor family. It was great to see
Auntie Flo on the dance floor entertaining us with her antics, as
usual. It was also excellent to meet our guests, the President of
the North West AWCC, Roland Dotchin and his wife Barbara, the
Chairman Bryan Pollard and his wife Linda and four guests from
Nantwich and Border Counties Yacht Club.
Our meal, prepared and cooked by Majella
McLoughlin was very good and the band 'The Cadillacs' were excellent
and kept us dancing all night. Thank you John and Pam Suggitt, for
organising the band for me. Thanks also to the room set-up team and
the room tidy-up team - your help is greatly appreciated.
Congratulations to Roy Pickford, who was awarded
an Honorary Life Membership for his services to the club over many
years. His award was presented by Garry Dockerty, the club Chairman.
My next event is the Adults' Christmas Party.
There will be a full Christmas Dinner, prepared and cooked by
Reflections and we will be entertained by Nancy, Little Miss
Sixties. The list is up on the notice board and I would like the

The Children's Christmas Party is the next event

party tea and a visit from Santa. The party is suitable for children

The Boxing Day Cruise will again be to Marple

If the canal isn't frozen, then come by boat.
New Year's Eve will be the last event of the
Festive Season. There will be dancing to Double D Disco and a

possible. Numbers and payment by 28th December. Many thanks.
Just a reminder about cheques, please make them
payable to me because if they are made payable to NCCC we have to
pay 50p per cheque as that's a business account.
Hope to see you all at as many of the above
events as possible.
