    We received questions before the meeting all of which were addressed during the meeting, details below:

    1/ There is a car park located at the bottom of the bank at Runswick Bay, plenty of parking is available. In the unlikely event that the car park is full then extra parking is located at the top of the bank to the right. Please do not use the residents car park.

    2/ To avoid congestion please park in the car park and use a trolley to the slipway, kayaks can be off loaded near the slipway if needs be but only if you don't have a trolley.

    3/ If weather is against us then a decision whether the match will go ahead will be be made by 7pm on the Saturday night, hopefully this will be enough notice for anyone travelling.

    4/ Hopefully a kayak safety course will be ran on the Saturday, RNLI will be involved if it goes ahead and possibly a safety flare demo. Will confirm asap.

    Really sorry guys. I got the time wrong. Me and Mike went to Fleece at 6. Well done on getting sorted though.

    dan the pollock Rockling

    looks good, i would of attended last night if i knew there was a meeting taking place.

    can i ask why the bass size limit is 41cm and not 35cm?
  7. Sambo

    Sambo To the MAX!

    These things happen Glenn, not to worry.

    Dan, I think Matty said that was the Whitby club size limit so we went with that. If people would prefer 35cm instead of 41cm then we can change it.
  8. dan the pollock
