Barney is bashing Bosham. For all we know, somebody could have removed Chidham, as the only view from the Office is of white horses and a wall of grey rain. Never mind – this is a great opportunity for you sit and read a rather longer than usual Newsletter (sorry!)
Christmas Craft and Design Market at BSC on Friday 20th November 10:00 – 17:00
Come on everybody – let’s make this a great rip roaring success for you and for our exhibitors. It will be wonderfully successful because coming to BSC on Friday will solve all your Christmas present problems in one fabulous fell swoop and you’ll bring or meet all your friends here and you can have pastries and hot chocolate and hot mulled cider and it will be sizzlingly successful for our exhibitors who will be frantic to get on the waiting list for next year’s market. You know this is true. It’s low tide at 11:16 that day so that is very helpful for parking and it will be just civilised shopping and fun. Come and join in!
So, you’re feeling ever so slightly smug because all YOUR Christmas shopping has been done at the Club during the day and now to round off a good day, somebody else is going to cook for you.

And now for a competition! This is your chance to win a Bosham Sailing Club Lottery ticket. Lottery organiser, Barry Colgate writes:
A free competition for all members
How would you like a free 12 month Lottery ticket worth £96?
The Club’s 50/50 Lottery is going to contribute a significant amount of money to help finance our re-furbishment of the upstairs areas planned for the first part of 2016.
To raise awareness of the Lottery, and to encourage many more members to join, we are running a free competition open to all members over 16.
All you have to do is estimate how much will have been paid out in cash prizes in our 50/50 Lottery from when it started up to and including the draw on 11 December 2015.
The estimate closest to this total figure will win a free 50/50 Lottery ticket for one year commencing in December 2015.
In the event that two or more members tie for the prize they will be asked to resubmit their estimates until there is one clear winner.
Just email your estimate to - firstname.lastname@example.org - by no later than noon on 11 December.
Only one estimate per member and those engaged in the administration of the 50/50 Lottery cannot take part.
The result will be announced at 7.30pm on 11 December with the main Lottery draw where the quarterly BONUS prize is expected to be over £1100.
The decision of the Lottery Promoter is final.
If, during the course of the sailing season, you’ve left some things up in the attic, please be aware that these belongings must be removed by Friday 20th November. The attic will be cleared prior to our big refurbishment. This does not apply to those people who have paid for an attic locker. The Club secretary will contact you shortly about your lockers.
So don’t forget, the ONLY place to be this Friday and Saturday, is at Bosham Sailing Club.
