RIGGING OUT SUPPER 2020
 
Saturday, 25th April 2020 at 7.00 for 7.30pm
 

The EACC Rigging Out Supper is an important part of our social calendar, but has had to be cancelled this year for obvious reasons.

 

But this is EACC and we are rarely daunted by natural events like weather or tides, so although this virus stops us getting together in person it doesn't stop EACC altogether as we have decided instead to hold a VIRTUAL event.  

It will take place on Saturday 25 April, starting at 7pm for 7.30pm and will be held at your place. And my place. And everyone's place.  There are a lot of pluses - no worries about what to wear as you can change at will, no worries about the wrong booze as you can go to the fridge and no expensive taxis home!

The format will be as follows: 

We thought it would be fun if we all cooked the same dishes, so there will be a standard menu, with 3 choices for starter, main and dessert. The menu is below and
recipes HERE.  You should have had time to shop for the ingredients, however you do this, but if you can't get something then substitute. I understand that chocolate and custard substitute well for most things and sponge fingers can be sculpted for presentation purposes (thanks for the tip Roger).

You are encouraged to decorate your venue with flags and bunting and any trophies you have sitting around to create an EACC theme. Sadly none of us will be able to attend from our boats, but if you want an authentic experience you could replicate the heads by putting a bucket in the cupboard under the stairs. 

There will be short quiz but that's as far as I have got on entertainment and I expect the technology will be sufficiently entertaining in itself.

The technology. We will do this on Zoom, which is one of those thar internet things. It seems to be one of the better ones and can accommodate up to 100 users at one time so will have plenty of space for us. I will set up a 'meeting' and send you all a link. You will have to download Zoom and then the link will take you in. It's free to download Zoom to get in to the 'meeting'.

It would be marvellous to see as many of you as possible. If you want to come to the Virtual Rigging Out Supper pre-booking is absolutely essential as I need to sort out the technology. Please confirm by Thursday 23 April and let me have your email address for the link.

Disclaimer: I have no idea whether this is going to work, but it's not as if we're all doing anything else is it? 

Best wishes and stay safe

Cally

LAST YEAR'S EVENT

 
RIGGING OUT SUPPER 2019
 
Saturday, 27th April 2019 at 7.00
 
Venue: Stokesby Village Hall
 
It must be spring because we are thinking about Stokesby and the Rigging Out Supper, which has become as much part of the Club calendar as the informal cruises, the regattas and the Friday tables in The Lion.  For many, it is the first night of the season aboard and we've had both sunshine and snow on the parish moorings, sometimes on the same day!
 
The arrangements this year are again for an informal dinner prepared by club members, plenty of opportunity to chat and mingle, followed by a quiz from our own much celebrated quizmaster Mr Malcolm Duffield.  It will be slightly shorter this year, now he knows the level of our abilities and the speed of the proceedings - you might say we have been collectively handicapped! There will be an entry fee. All proceeds to EACC charity for 2019, NANSA
 
A new element for this year will be a book sale also to raise money for the Club's chosen charity so if you have any sailing books (good condition only) that you wish to donate to be sold please bring them along, or pass them to Cally or Lesley Everett beforehand.  
 
Additionally we'll be having a fire sale of the remaining stock of clothing regalia, with proceeds also to the charity. If you are lucky you will go home with a new outfit and reading material
 
If you are intending to come please let Cally know by Monday 22nd April so we know how many people we are catering for and if you have any dietary requirements please mention them! 
 Cost per person £12.00 including supper cheque payable to EACC to:
