Laying Up Supper 2017

Ely Sailing Club's annual Laying Up Supper was once again a great success. With members starting to arrive from around 7pm, it signalled the start to a very warm and friendly evening.

The trophies on display looked magnificent this year, after undergoing a year long renovation and replacement process to modernise and clean up those that were starting to look a little tatty. The club's new round dining tables and chairs transformed the look of the clubhouse, and created a great sociable dining experience. The committee is looking to keep up its aim of modernising and refurbishing facilities into the new season in order to continue improving the club for the benefit of members.

The evening kicked off with the prize giving ceremony, where each winner one by one had their achievements read out by Commodore Gary Ungless, and trophies awarded by Membership Secretary Liz Ungless. Prize winners received a certificate of their awards and the trophies themselves.

Following the prize giving, a hearty hog roast with an assortment of salads and side dishes was enjoyed by all, with many going up for seconds. Liz kindly prepared a wonderful array of desserts, which much like the dinner, disappeared very quickly!

Well done to all the prize winners, and a special thank you to all members who came and made it such an enjoyable evening.

Don't forget, we have our AGM this Thursday evening (23rd November 2017) in the clubhouse starting at 7:30pm, for which we encourage all members to attend in order to guide the committee's decisions on your club. Also, Sunday 10th December is our annual home cooked Christmas Dinner from 1pm. Tickets are available from the homepage of the website.
