COVID Reminder

Dear Members

Thank you for you continued support. As restrictions lift, it’s nice to see people enjoying their sport. A real buzz around the place again.

However, COVID-19 is still a serious concern to us all.

Please note we still have guidelines in place from our relevant governing bodies to protect each other. A reminder of these are as below.

No visitors or guests permitted on site at any time.

Changing rooms and showers must not be used.

Toilets are for intended use only and are not substitute changing cubicles.

Please wash hands regularly and sanitise

Clean all surfaces you have been in contact with including tables and chairs.

Speed limit at the club is still a strict 5mph

We hope you enjoy your time at the Club despite the regulations.

Please think of others and stay safe.

Kind regards

Paul Norman

SWSC Secretary

Ski Work Party

A huge thanks to all those who pitched in to tackle the many jobs around the lake. Rumour has it Martin Ellis is still stuck in the Bungalow loft space threading the cable for the new patio floodlight !

The Committee, along with the help of members Andy Gilroy and Peter Worth, have also worked several weekends now on renovating the top end Slalom hut jetties. The job was far bigger than expected as it was not just the timber decking that had rotted through in places but also the scaffolding support structure underneath had rusted through after 30+ years in water ! We are still not finished but as you can see from the photos we are nearly there.

Thanks again for all the help provided, it saves £000’s of external contract costs which otherwise would have to be passed onto your Ski Section fees.

Bonfire & Fireworks !

Saturday 5th November

The club will be hosting bonfire night again this year with the Clubhouse bar open and the BBQ fired up (bring your own food)

6:00 Fire lit
7:00 Fireworks display.
 bonfire_night_
Everyone is invited to bring their own fireworks to contribute to the display. Please can you pass them to the organising ‘display team’ (in the Hi-Vis vests) when you arrive who will be safely letting the fireworks off on behalf of everyone.

Please keep away from slalom course

The slalom course has been damaged and there is a section of the underlying metal boom structure floating just below the surface in the course.

This will obviously cause great damage to a boat if driven over not to mention serious injury to a skier so please keep away from the slalom course area until we get chance to fix this hopefully during the work party this coming weekend.

We will confirm when safe to use the area again.

Triathlon weekend 13/14th August

Most of you should have received the email below that was sent out by the Watersports Club Management advising of the triathlon taking place at the lake this weekend.

Can we still ski ?

You won’t be able to ski on Sunday morning until mid morning as swimmers will be in the ski area of the lake from 8am before cycling and then running. The car park and grass areas will also be a bit congested for a while so drive carefully and park considerately avoiding blocking any routes through to the changeover areas for competitors etc

Check with the Officer of the Day or local marshall before launching to confirm the water is now safe to use.

Be aware that the gates will be open and there will be public access on Saturday (organisers) and Sunday (competitors and public) so be sure to lock trailers and cars and don’t leave any valuable wetsuits and ski equipment out. If you use the bungalow and kitchen please shut the door behind you.

This is an important source of income for the Club (and keeps your membership fees down) as well as being great fun to watch on the day so thank you for your support.

Subject: Triathlon 14th August

Dear Member

This coming weekend, 13th & 14th August, the club is host to a Triathlon being run by Active Training World.
They will be setting up for the event on Saturday 13th, with the competition taking place on Sunday 14th.
Competitors will be arriving from about 06:00 to register. The first part of the Triathlon is swimming, which is starting at 08:00 in the ski section. From there, they will be cycling along the old A428, before coming back to the club and running along the track next to the club. It should all be over before lunchtime.

Parking for competitors is just down the road at the college, so as a member you will still be able to park in the club. Just be aware of the runners and cyclists!

It is an exciting event to watch, so if you are not doing anything else, come and spectate!

You can find more about the event here .

Kind regards

Tim Robins
