New Blood Needed...
No, this is not a request for blood donors! The Cruising Club needs members to become involved and take on roles on the committee. There are positions to suit various skills. New blood is needed. Think about it before the next AGM....
Derry was a founder-member of the Cruising Club and a significant contributor to its development. He was the first Hon. Sec. and held that position until he was elected Hon. Sec. of the national body in 2010. In 2013 he was elected Vice-President, a position he held for two years. In 2014 he decided not to seek re-election to the IWAI Executive and was looking forward to becoming more actively involved with the Cruising Club, an enjoyment that he un-selfishly forfeited during his years on the Executive.
