Hants & Dorset ARA Presentation Dinner. Saturday, 12th November, 2016. Novotel Southampton.

The Hants & Dorset ARA Presentation Dinner takes place on Saturday, 12th November, 2016. at the Novotel Southampton.

The Club has won the Men's Novice Sculls Championship and a share in the Ladies Novice Fours Championship and although there are no individual medals for Novice Championships there are Trophies to collect - including a Safety Award.

So it would be really good if a few members could attend. Its usually a pretty good evening. 

The Cost of the evening is £27:00 and this includes: 3 Course meal, coffee, mints and shortbread. 

The usual heads and tails will be played together with a small high quality raffle prize draw.

Club members have to pay individual clubs for tickets and one club cheque or bank transfer is sent and info will be sent to the club organiser re: table planning - which I guess will be me!

If anyone from the Club is interested in going - I am happy to arrange the tickets - but wont book accommodation. If you want tickets then you need to let me know - and let me have the money and menu choices by the end of October at the very latest - earlier if possible.

Please E Mail me as soon as possible on stephencbull@gmail.com if you are interested - with the money by the end of October as stated.
