Party to celebrate NYC juniors 50th

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail Dear Member A final reminder that if you haven’t already bought your tickets for the 50th Jubiliee celebration Party this coming Saturday they can be purchased here ….. R.S.V.P Here All monies raised at  our Golden Jubilee celebrations are being put towards the purchase of a fleet of fireflies for the Junior Section .It has been long recognised that Team Racing is a vital skill for a teenage sailor  particularly as they move through secondary school towards College .We hope  that by acquiring the  fleet we can provide regular team racing  particularly for 14 to 19 year olds who may have opted not to continue in competitive  dinghy racing  but are keen to keep their hand in during their senior cycle at school . Having acquired the skill and enjoyed the study breaks during those couple of years then the Team racers are set for College  Sailing !in addition Team racing has grown hugely both at  Inter Club and Inter school level  in the Leinster region and beyond . Any of us with long memories or older children are well aware of the huge benefits both physical and social that Team Racing can bring to college life In short the addition of  “Jubilee  Fireflies” will greatly enhance our Junior Fleet and is something that ultimately all families will hugely  benefit from  So how can you contribute ?? There will be a Silent auction and  and raffle running on the night but if you are unable to attend you can participate during the week as follows : You can submit a bid for any of the auction prizes below in advance  by sending  Carmen an email with the details of the  amount that you would like to bid and your telephone no .                                                        or you can drop into Carmen in the office and buy some raffle tickets                                                      or Or  you can send a donation by cheque payable to NYC and clearly marked Jubilee Fireflies .   Please see the  Auction items and raffle prizes below .
