The Auctions this year were well attended. As always, Messers Brian, Michael and Captain Ron officiated and did a splendid job as ever, entertaining us all at the same time as raising funds.
The auction came in two parts.
It started with the auction of the late Jimmy Millar's items.
Sadly, Jim passed away, earlier this year.
We all hope the fantastic amount raised from this part of the auction will help the family.
Thank you all for digging so very deep into your pockets.
Then came the charity auction, as always a well-attended event, with a huge array of diverse items for sale. As far as I’m aware most of the items were sold. Thank you gentlemen for you bids, the charity to benefit, will be discussed and decided upon at the AGM.
In the galley as always, Jamesie did a sterling job, along with Sandy.
They served a variety of hot food, with the homemade soup being a firm favourite on a cold and drizzly day.
Due to rain and low water level, Fast Robert, was the only one out sailing on the pond (what, no fast electric). In it's place, he had a nice wooden built, Romanian Police Launch, with the top speed turned down, changed days.
Unfortunately, there was no night sail, fireworks or BBQ this year.....
Personally, I hope, it will return next year.
I believe, a good day was had by all, with good causes benefiting from the generosity of GRMBC and other local club members.
A splendid effort everyone and, here’s to next year............
