We are well into the season now but there is still lots to do.

Although this is fully booked there is a waiting list so if anyone is thinking of dropping out please let Jane Neale know so she can fill the gap.
Ranworth Island BBQ September 9th.
AGM Weekend October 20/22nd.
Invitations have already gone out so I hope as many of our region as possible will attend. Please send your booking to John Oldham by 15th September. There will be lunch at Brooms on the Saturday or alternately Keith Rowe will be doing another of his splendid walks with commentary around Norwich.

There will no Laying Up Supper as such so we will combine this with the Christmas Party at RNSYC. Details to follow.
New Year's Eve.
Tracy Read is organising a party at Waveney River Centre. Please contact her for further details.
Broom Boats BBQ July 8th
The weather was perfect, the island location beautiful in the sun and the food and drink in good supply so everyone had an excellent time, some of us carrying on till very late. There was a good turn out generally by Broom customers and most of those present were club members which is very pleasing. Many thanks to Broom Boats for their generous hospitality.
Eastern Region Northern Rivers BBQ and Update
The Broom BBQ is set to go ahead this Saturday 12 till 4 and it would a good idea to let them know if you are going.
The Brundall Boat Show went well for the club with new members arriving and existing members I had not met before. I hope we managed to break the ice a bit. It was also pleasing that so many members helped man the stand and sell the club. A great effort.
Two boats recently returned from a Thames cruise, visiting Shotley, Ramsgate, London, Chatham and Ipswich and the East Coast cruise will set off from Brundall Saturday 15th July for two weeks.
The Beccles rally end August is fully booked but if you are still interested let Jane Neale know in case of cancellations.
The big event will be the club's national AGM Weekend October 20/22nd at Dunston Hall. As our region will be hosting it this year I am hoping for a good turnout from you all and any help with the running would be appreciated. Invitations will be going out later this month.
Laying Up Supper end October and Christmas Party early December details to follow nearer the time.
Latest Update E Region
The Fitting Out Supper was down in numbers-33-but greatly enjoyed by all. The food and service were the best ever.
The next event will be the Brundall boat show on May 20th, when Broom Boats as well as several other well known boat companies will be exhibiting. BOC will have space in the marquee so help running it from local members would be appreciated so Linda Varney and I can get round the show. Brooms will be showing new and used boats, marine services, the new Tingdene narrowboat(hope none of them ends up on the Broads) and the new English Harbour Yachts range. Other attractions will include Lotus Cars. Club burgees will be available so no excuse now for not flying the flag! Open 10am - 4pm.
The 2017 BOC Beccles Rally will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend with a barbecue in the park on the evening of Saturday 26th August, followed by a dinner at Waveney House Hotel on the Sunday. This year the hotel has promised a higher quality menu. Various activities are planned over the weekend and further details will be available nearer the time. This popular event is a great opportunity to enjoy the company of friends old and new and we particularly hope that some of our newer members will come along to join in the fun.
Brundall Boat Show 20th May
As there is no Horning Boat Show this year and last year's Broom show was a washout Broom Boats are taking part in a later Brundall wide boat show. Other well known local boat companies will be showing so it could be quite a big event and well worth attending by members from all over the country.
