The Cumbraes Weekend is just over 4 days away - August 22nd and 23rd 2015. We are now finalising the weekend and the volunteers we need.
We would particularly like to get some more members to assist in Slip duties - launching/recovery, trolley placement, tally management, etc. Physical dexterity varies from needing to be reasonably agile for launching, to purely clerical when it comes to tally management.
The timing - about 10.30 to 17.00 on Saturday, and 10.00 to 15.00 on Sunday, but any part of that appreciated - one day, half day, etc.
