LDSC AGM - Business then fun!14th November 7.30pm

25.10.14 07:05 PM

Annual general meetings are often dry occasions, so to liven things up this year the Ski Club AGM will also be a social evening. The formalities are only expected to take about half an hour.

The rest of the evening will include a slide/film show to celebrate last season’s sliding plus the work behind the scenes; and a Q&A session about the club and its 78-year history – plus a free drink and nibbles.

Just the thing to get you in the mood for the forthcoming season now that everything is ready to go up on Raise.

Proceedings will start at 7.30 for 8pm at the Warehouse Cafe in the Brewery Arts Centre, 122A Highgate, Kendal, LA9 4HE. If you have any good pics or videos from last season please email them or a link for them to Mike Sweeney.

Before the meeting we will circulate to members the agenda, nominations for the committee and the accounts. If there are any agenda items, nominations for the vacant posts of assistant ski tow officer, HSE officer or assistant treasurer, please email secretary John Burrows (preferably with a proposer and seconder) by Nov 7. 

So roll up, roll up! A full year’s skiing/boarding, a chance to meet the committee, find out more about your club and socialise with other club members - AND a bonus drink and nibbles for your fifty quid fee. 

Skiing doesn’t get any better value than in the Helvellyn Central Massif!

Note that attendees must be club members for the 2014/15 season to vote at the meeting. Membership starts on October 1 each year and you can sign up here in time for the evening. 

Car parking
Car parking at the Brewery Centre costs £1.20 after 6:00 pm but will be very limited as there two other events on. There is additional parking at the Parish Church (LA9 5AF), Peppercorn Lane (LA9 5AQ) or Dowker Lane (LA9 4DN - 50 and 300 metres in. They are all on the right-hand side of the main street (one-way) as you enter Kendal from the south in the order given and before the Brewery centre.  

All these are free after 6pm and 5 minutes walk from the Brewery Centre. If you go beyond the Brewery Centre you have to go round Kendal’s one-way system to get back to the car-parks unless you are lucky enough to get one of the few higher up the main street.
