Saturday 13th January at 18.00 in the Emsworth Community Centre, North Street, Emsworth, PO10 7DD. OOD – Derek Ellinor, Commodore
Forecast for Satay:
Wind: Foo 6 from Sweet and Sour – on the nose as usual!
Precipitation: Light Soya Sauce with a chance of Onions – wear hat!
Waves: Noodles of Chow Mein – either chicken out or beef about it later
Outlook: Too early in year for Spring rolls so have Sea-Same Toast and prawn crackers
High Tide: Irrelevant.
A seat awaits you for a Chinese Buffet Supper. Prompt 18.00 start or the food will go cold. £15 per head and bring your own tipple. Vegetarians go first (so others don’t pinch all the veggie food), followed by those who don’t like sea food and then the rest of us.
Last year we had an excellent turn out and the Indian food was good but the service in the Spice Village was atrocious. This year it will be self-service!
There will be a wide selection of dishes to cater for all tastes. As with any Chinese take-away there will be more than enough and those staying on board may be taking doggy bags for breakfast! There will be a selection of gateaux to finish. If we can get access to the kitchens there will be coffee and tea available.
We plan to provide one or two short (10 minute) presentations on topics we trust will be of interest to all. Any volunteers? If so, please submit a title and a brief description to me by Christmas Eve. I reserve the right to down select in the event of too many offerings but may plan them in for another occasion. We also intend to judge the annual photo competition at this event since the venue for the Christmas Lunch was not conducive to that activity. It is not too late to get your entries to Alice. The four categories are given in the Year Book.
Please register for this event via the website You may pay by BACS to the ECA account or by cheque made payable to Emsworth Cruising Association sent to Neil Fuller to arrive no later than 6th January. Late comers welcome but if too many there may be too little food.
Dress code: Casual. I do hope that you can make it and that we don’t have snow!
