Liffey Run March 2011.

A branck meeting Was held in the Poolbeg Sail club in Dublin after which we launched  10 boat and headed up river as Far as Island-bridge

On the return trip we stopped of  at grand cananl Dock for a bite to eat and coffees, before heading out as far a the second green cardinal marker in Dublin Bay,

The  sea was get lumpy  and it was decided to return to Poolbeg and all boat were recovered safely a great few hours on the water.

Inaugural meeting of the Powerboat Branch

Last night’s inaugural meeting of the Powerboat Branch was quite a success with new and existing members travelling from all over Ireland .About 25 people attended ,the question of dual membership came up again and I have promised to progress this at the next Executive ,it is good to see that people are supportive of a new Branch and yet loyal to their existing one . The start up committee consist of Cormac Smith , Chairman , Hugo Green, Hon Treasurer, Paul Garland , Hon Sec  Fergal Butler .Brian Thornton . Lorna Shanley & Niall O Flaherty all offered assistance and at the first branch meeting tasks will be allocated . The Calendar of events is 90% in place and will be issued in the next few days it is only awaiting venue confirmation . It was a very positive meeting with the usual one or two dissenters one in fact telling us the people of Dromod did not want us ,this was somewhat refuted by the hospitality shown to us on the night by the aforementioned people . We will set up a Bank Account in the coming weeks and hold the first Branch meeting in Febuary

Regards Paul Garland   ( Hon Sec Powerboat Branch )
