2022 Calendar Plain Text first draft

Post by kgarla »

Dear All,
Please find below a first version of the Calendar for 2022 along the lines of what is normally in the magazine but is here to give you all an early sight of how things are progressing as regards events for this year. I have tried and failed miserably to get the magazine format to fit on this page but … well here is the alternative for now! It follows basically the same format of headings: Event Category & Date/ Event/ Type of Event/ Organiser & Entry fee per boat/ Contact. Hope it helps you to start planning this year.
Take care, stay safe and hope to see some more of you this year.
