    Easier access to Byfleet Boat Club

    • Dear Members, I'm pleased to report that Gordon E as a member of Byfleet Boat Club has been able to secure the use of the key to open the bottom gate at the club. This will greatly help the less mobile of us when visiting club nights etc.and make it a lot safer than using the slope down to the clubhouse. Those who feel they need to use this facility should advise Grahame P before club nights so we can open the gates. Thanks to Gordon for arranging this with the committee of Byfleet Boat Club.

    Sumners Ponds Model Show 2017 10 June 2017

    • The fifth Sumners ponds model show takes place this weekend just outside Horsham. As in previous years Phoenix will be present with a large display of boats. In addition there will be flying displays of planes, kites and quad-copters together with tanks, railways and electric/IC car racing. If you have an interest in any aspect of modelling then there should be something for you, bring the family as it's a great day out. Please go to [2] for more information.

    Alfold Charity Model boat Show 29 July 2017

    • The Alfold CMBS is with us again but a couple of months later so as to avoid clashes with other events and hopefully attract more traders and visitors. As in previous years Phoenix MMC will have a stand (probably the size of three gazebos). It's a good fun day out and well worth a visit. The proceeds go to support the charity Care Ashore, see [3] for more details of this worthwhile organization supporting retired Seafarers.

    Frostbite Series 2016/17

    • The Series is now complete. The weather curtailed the planned programme allowing only seven Race Days to be sailed, therefore only the best 5 results to count. A total of 15 competitors sailed, with 7 completing 5 races. Congratulations to David A. on a convincing win and Roger P on second place. Our thanks go Keith and Ian braving the cold to act as RO`s.
