***Your club needs you***

Listen up #TeamYellow for news of two great opportunities to get more involved in the running of our brilliant club.

Opportunity number 1
Could you be the next flag head honcho? Keeper of the flags? Care for our race flags lovingly and bring them along to our races throughout the year and display them with pride? If this sounds like it might right up your alley please let Jim know.

Opportunity number 2
How's about being our social guru? After years of sterling service and many memorable events, Paul Snelling is going to stand down from the role of social secretary after 2018.
Could you or a group of you take on organising our calendar of social events?
Although Paul is carrying on for another year, we're hoping that his successor(s) can get involved soon and work with him/shadow organising the biggest event of the year our club presentation night in February.

Does this float your boat? Wet your whistle? Rock your socks? Then Jim or Paul are the chaps to chat to.

Sodbury Slog
