CASC recording methods
Members are responsible for ensuring their participation in water-based and support to water-based activities is recorded on the signing-on sheet available in the Boat Store.
N.B. please print your full name and make it legible!
Organisers of training sessions are responsible for ensuring members’ participation in water-based and support to water-based activities is recorded on a Signing-on Sheet available in the Boat Store or Miscellaneous Activities Signing-on Sheet are available in the Galley (folder by small microwave oven on the counter).
Two forms are available in the Galley (folder by small microwave oven on the counter) for recording additional activities: 1) Large-group attendance at a specified activity can be recorded on the Miscellaneous Activities Signing-on Sheet, or 2) Individual participation in an activity may be recorded on the CASC Activities Spreadsheet form.
If a member undertakes a relevant activity at home, or elsewhere away from the Club, they may send an e-mail to the Hon. Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will be suitable for activities such as committee tasks, boat maintenance, food preparation, etc.
