Novice Meeting – October 21, 2010
The Novice Meeting was great success due to the organizing by Rae Philips, Membership Chair and Brenda Easton, Membership Vice Chair. The speakers for the evening were: Jenny Yule on the History of Abreast In A Boat; Patricia Fernandes on Fitness, Safety and Commitment; Maria Hindmarch on Water Safety; Ysa Luz on the Regatta Schedule; Lynn Sparling on the Novice Experience; and Carol Dale, our Ms. Accessories. They all did an excellent job of informing the potential novices about our Society. Questions were asked and answered by Rae and Brenda before two videos were shown as the members mingled with the newly signed up novices.
Thank you to Evelyn Smoliak, our Social Coordinator and her helpers for decorating the room and organizing the snacks. Also, thanks to Sheila Blair and Bunny Rosse for setting up their wonderful AIAB Information display.
