Advance Warning of an EGM
30 Apr 2016
Up until April this year we have enjoyed a legal status that has reduced our liability for business rates. AWSC has enjoyed Community Amateur Sportsclub Status (CASC).
Unfortunately the rules regarding eligibility for this status changed in April 2015 and as of April 2016 we have had to withdraw from CASC status.
This means our liability for business rates has increased dramatically. If we do nothing we will have to increase membership fees substantially.
The board have been looking into ways of solving this issue and we believe that we should become a foundation charity. With some work this means we could again reduce our liabilities.
WE cannot, however, just go ahead and do this without consultation with you, the members. We would, therefore, like to call an EGM one evening in June to discuss this further. the dates and times will be announced soon but I just wanted to make you aware that we will need to discuss this with as many members as possible.

Thursday Night Mid-Week Mayhem Series 2016 - MEMBERS ONLY
05 Apr 2016
The Alton Thursday Night Series
(Mid-week Mayhem) starts on April 7th running until 26th May.
We would love to get lots of non-racers out with us for this fun
It's an all in handicap off one single start at 1800 and we
generally finish at or before 1900.
It's very social and great fun. Any
sailing dinghies (or windsurfers) can take part.
We are happy to help with hire boats (speak to the centre) if you
need something to sail and there will always be someone to help you
understand racing, starting, basic rules and we will even volunteer to
helm or crew for you if you need us to.
We do need volunteer OODs for each night (average points if you do
it so it doesn't affect your results), so come and try this too, it's the
best view of the races and a great way to learn in a safe environment.
Any questions at all ask at the Centre, or speak to Oli or Mark Smith, we are quite friendly so come along and have fun - it's
free but for Alton Water members only)!
