The evening starts at 7pm and everyone to be seated by 7:30pm promptly hopefully this will give us more time for the disco.
Please collect your members menu choices and place them on to tables of 10 larger tables will also be acceptable. Larger clubs I would really appreciate this in Spreadsheet form as well 🙏 as I have to forward these on to the hotel. 
Please explain that people can NOT move tables whilst eating because the hotel use your table plans to bring out the food correctly ( this happened last year and caused major problems) 
I also had a complaint from the duty manager regarding bottles of NON PURCHASED Wine being placed on the table, and leaving empty bottles thereafter.

The "Daily Echo Trophy" in Memory of Arthur Chatfield.

The "Daily Echo Trophy" in Memory of Arthur Chatfield.

The "Daily Echo Trophy" was presented to the Association in memory of the late Arthur Chatfield and is awarded annually, at the Presentation Dinner, by the Association, to an individual for Services to the Association and to Coastal Rowing.

It was agreed that Clubs would be asked to nominate candidates   for the award and that the Association's Executive Officers would make a final decision on who should receive the Trophy from those nominated. Nominations do not have to be, and arguably should  not be, from your own Club. It should be noted that the award is   for services to the Association and Coastal Rowing - and while    there are many deserving Club members who have made a significant contribution to their own Clubs - with this award we   seek to recognize significant contributions to our Association and    to Coastal Rowing.

Could your Club, therefore, please give consideration to who you may wish to nominate for this Trophy and send the nomination to me at 10, Brookfield Gardens, Binstead, Ryde, Isle of Wight, PO33 3NP or by E Mail me at by the 5th October, 2019.
