2 December 2017 AGM, Prizegiving and Annual meal  
  Royal Windemere Yacht Club Format AGM Prizegiving...come along (you never know!) Dinner - a mere £10 please book your meal with Richard Jennings - themightyjennings@btinternet.com. and transfer £10 to CSC: 20 45 28 23886964 (or £20 if you can persuade the Mrs, or the Mr. to come along!) After dinner we've got Geoff Yeadon giving a talk. Geoff was one of the key pioneers of the Yorkshire cave diving scheme and he's made the progression from cave diving through early hangliders to paragliding.Having heard just a snippet of his exploits, I think it should be very entertaining If you're just coming to AGM/Prizegiving, no need to book or let us know you are coming, but please book by Monday 27th November for dinner and finally, if anyone would like to come onto the committee to get involved, have your say or give us some new ideas about what you want from YOUR club, please don't hesitate! You can just turn up and stand at the AGM or phone any committee member for a chat about what's involved. Hope to see you there
