QuizeesThe annual CVSS Quiz Night on Saturday 12th April was a great success ..but how could it not be – clever questions, good company, fish and chips and brilliantly organised by Barry Slade (our quiz master) and the lovely Timandra. They were assisted by Nick King and Robin Smith, who ensured it all ran smoothly and broke up the fights between tables – only joking!

A big Thank You to the organising team and all of you who came along and raised £651.63 for CVSS coffers (a fifth of a katakanu, or a tenth of a 303, in CVSS terms).

We look forward to seeing you all at the Lake or, if you support us via quiz night, at the Quiz Night in 2015 which we sincerely hope the Slades will organise.

And here is a "poem what they wrote earlier" from Timandra and Barry

"We've added the money
and we've sorted the float
With another nine quizzes
we can buy a new boat"


Eat your heart out Carol Ann Duffy!

Our volunteer training day went well, a dry day with some sun and challenging gusts!

We had a great turn out of old (or should I say established) volunteers with some new faces - a great mix.

It allowed us to try out some of the new ACCESS dinghies all of which look "tres chic"

Steve Sawford joined us to take away the old H pontoon and have lunch.

Our next event is Parents and Assistants Training on Thursday April 24 - and then the 2014 season begins on Monday 28th April.

Thirty members attended the EGM on 12th March at BLYM. They voted unanimously to adopt CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) status for CVSS. This will not change our activities or our policies and procedures but will give the committee and trustees more protection. Our charity number has changed to 1155165. We will be changing our publicity material to match.

Thank you to all members who attended the meeting – it was good to see everyone.
