Summer bash and AGM Calshot 15 July 2017

Gary at Lepe

Lepe & Calshot

We like it here! This is another one of those venues where Jo Public windsurfer rarely ventures and we usually have the entire place to ourselves (plus a few day trippers but it is rarely crowded). If there is wind in The Solent, it is usually one Beaufort stronger here because of the prominent position, being the closest point to The Isle of Wight.

Event report Event report Event report for Summer bash and AGM Calshot 15 July 2017
The Summerbash!! This is the most popular event of the year, and this year it's also the venue for the continued AGM, where the committee will be looking for members to determine the future of the club.

We have to provide details of campers at least 7 days in advance - I need your responses by 7 July, that is just 10 days away!

Time to post some details, the most important of which are, at this point in time, ...

The Fees

Camping:
- Small tent (3 person or less) 8.50 per adult, 3.10 per U18 per night includes one car only
- Large tent or Camper/Caravan (4 person +) 19.00 per night this is for any number of people + 1 Car
- Launch: 1.00 per board per day. + 5.50 per car per day if not camping (includes day parking)

For example (I'm sure JonL will correct this if I'm wrong...):
- 2 adults, 2 kids under 18, 1 van, two launches (Sat/Sun), staying overnight Saturday: 19 + 2 = 21
- 2 adults, 0 kids, 1 car, small tent, 4 launches, staying Sat night: 8.50 + 8.50 + 4 = 21
- 1 adult, 0 kids, 1 van, 2 launches, staying Sat night: 19 + 2 = 21
- 1 adult, 2 kids, 1 van, 2 launches, staying Fri & Sat night: 19 + 19 + 2 = 40

Please use the Donate - Make a donation to OMWC page to pay in advance, and also include details of what you are paying for. If you can't work out what you'd need to pay for, please comment on this event and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

AGM Continuation

The AGM continuation will be early evening on Saturday, when everyone's had enough sun/surf, and probably in the bar or similar location. Please refer to this article for details on the Resolutions we'll be discussing and voting on, and to this report on the AGM initial session in February, explaining why this is all happening.

OK - that's it! Let's go sailing, before we forget what this is all about...

Don't forget to declare your camping intentions SOON! In fact, DO IT NOW! What do you mean, you can't remember your credit card details?!

We are hoping to be there, Friday too unless the weather is dodgy.

It's Summerbash time!! Please get your camping orders in by 7 July!

Added by johng on 01/07/17

It's the weekend... You're reading your email... And there's another dratted spam from OMWC!! Yes, Summerbash - time to get your camping orders in! Use the Donate page. Do it now, before you forget... and before 7 July!

Added by BeachAddict on 01/07/17

We're paid up, will be down late afternoon on Friday.

Added by johng on 01/07/17

Yup, maybe we should offer a "first in" discount... or price increases daily until the cut-off :)

Added by jonathan on 01/07/17

sadly we have another commitment this year on the Saturday, but hope to get down on the Sunday if possible. Happy to double-check Johng's pricing if required - he needs to be watched!

Added by Yannis on 03/07/17

Most likely Lucas and I will be coming. Eva has all sorts of sports tournaments

Added by Yannis on 03/07/17

Paid BTW

Added by Shef on 03/07/17

We'll be there. Will pay tonight

Added by johng on 03/07/17

Monday - boo... But, how about...

Give yourself something to look forward to! Sort out your attendance at the Summerbash and AGM by using the Donate page and telling us what you're doing. 7th July is the closing date for this!

Added by Clare D on 03/07/17

Sorry I can't make the Calshot weekend as it clashes with my Mums Birthday. Any chance of having the Summerbash one week earlier or week later next year!!.

Added by Gabi-PeteD on 08/07/17

We shall arrive on Friday. Very much looking forward to seeing everyone.

Added by Gabi-PeteD on 08/07/17

So, who remembers Red Thai Curry and Green Thai Curry on a Saturday night of OMWC at Calshot?
I know, the chef has moved on, but what's on offer now?

Added by johng on 08/07/17

Right!! This is it... I will be calling Calshot on Monday to give them the numbers, so book your spot now, using the Donate page!! There are many likely candidates who haven't booked yet, so make sure you're not one of them. Have a great weekend!

Added by johng on 12/07/17

Hi guys. Sadly, I won't be able to make the event this weekend - I had a bit of a run-in with a van whilst cycling last Wednesday, and after a couple of days in hospital I am recuperating at home. All ok, no broken bones, astoundingly, but bit of a bang to the head so I have to take it easy for the next two weeks. So let's postpone the AGM extension for now - nothing's actually broken so there's no rush, but we should take it up sometime, ok?

And, whatever you do, WEAR A HELMET!! I was lucky... I could have been an ex-John!

Added by Shef on 13/07/17

Sorry to hear that John, get well soon
