Thanks again to all those who volunteered at our Harbour Clean Up event last weekend, and to Sam's Tours in hosting the event and for donating the prizes which will be distributed as soon as they've received their new gear and vouchers have been created. 369lbs of trash removed from the ocean is no mean feat with just over 20 volunteers. A mostly pouring day, a mammoth effort by all who stuck out the weather, and another good deed feather to pop in your cap :) I'm sure Mother Nature sends her thanks too.
We're coming up to the close of the year so a few additional notices as we lead in to the silly season.
What's on this month?
Thursday 8th Nov - Movie night at Sam's Tours 6.45pm screening 'The Invention of Lying' written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Matthew Robinson and starring Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner and Jonah Hill. A comedy set in a world where no-one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.
Thursday 15th Nov - Movie night at Sam's Tours 6.45pm screening 'Rock of Ages' starring Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta. A small town girl and a city boy meet on Sunset Strip, while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Rock musical!
Saturday 17th Nov - Dinghy Raft Up meeting at Sam's Tours at 5pm to assess the suitability of the weather, depending on rain we may postpone. Please bring something to drink for yourself, and maybe something snacketty to share across the dinghies.
Thursday 22nd Nov - Movie night at Sam's Tours 6.45pm screening 'The Amazing Spider-man' starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans. Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors, his father's former partner.
Thursday 29th Nov - Movie night at Sam's Tours 6.45pm featuring another pot luck night. This simply means that I'll bring a bunch of movies for the audience to choose from, and whichever gets the most interest is what will be played. Make sure you're there by 6.30pm to get a vote. Some of the possibilities at this point are 'War Horse' (Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, David Thewlis), 'The Watch' (Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade), 'The Campaign' (Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis) and 'Bachelorette' (Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan).
