On Monday 3 January at 4pm the annual end of year Cadet Prize Giving will take place at BSC.
Adding to this fantastic event is Scottish Dancing which is being hosted by Tris and Becs Mayhew starting at approximately 5pm.
All ages are welcome and no previous experience required! Please pop this date in your diary if you haven't already.
Trophy Returns Reminder!
If you have any outstanding trophies please ensure they are returned to the office (polished and engraved) as soon as possible. Thankyou.
BSC Mens Lunch
The BSC Men's Lunch held on the 17th December was a huge success.
It was great to see the terrace buzzing with good conversation!
The event included mulled wine from Merrick, several fire pits and delicious food provided by our wonderful caterer Helen Clegg.
Fancy being handy in the New Year?
Valiant is in need of some TLC and we're looking for volunteers to lend a hand. You don't have to be a rower to take part.
The main task is sanding and painting / varnishing. There are some woodwork projects: t-hole pins, floorboards and hopefully a solution to the rudder - if you're a carpenter do get in touch.
It will be a great opportunity to meet other members, get involved in a mini community project and get to know our new Bosun Rob who will be around to help.
If you can lend an any amount of time during the period please get in touch with Laura.
BSC Christmas Opening Hours

Carols by Candlelight
A big Thankyou to all who attended and those who helped with the BSC Christmas Carol Service on the 16th December.
New Years Day Nurdling!
BSC will once again compete against Itchenor on New Years Day for the Nurdling title!
Meet 10:45 for an 11am start at the Hare and Hounds pub in Stoughton, PO18 9JQ. All families and ages can join in.
The route is up Cardiac Hill (165m vertical ascent) across the top of the ridge past the tumuli above Kingley Vale, and down Monarch's Way back towards the Hare and Hounds (c.4.5km in total).
Large wooden spoons whipped to broom handles, and bin lids are useful for flicking and making safe the Nurdle (as pictured).
Dress: Anything goes.
BSC Burns Night Supper 29th January from 7pm!
"Sláinte Mhath!" translates to "Good Health!" - it's pronounced "slanj'-uh va'".
To celebrate Burns Night BSC is offering a traditional Scottish meal in the Clubhouse accompanied by a professional bagpipe player.
Please do come to the practices to brush up your dancing skills before Burns Night. They are in the club on 5th and 19th January.
For more details and to book your place, please see here.
Thank You So Much!
As 2021 draws to a close, we'd like to thank everyone who has volunteered this year - many of you have gone above and beyond.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you on the water and in the club in 2022.
