Boats and Social Evening

Wednesday 5th July – 19:30 start
Wisbey Park

Congratulations to Derek Round for setting the fastest time around the course, I managed to come a close second but either need more practice or supercharged batteries!
The ‘fox hunt’ game at the end was a lot harder than it looked! Well done to John Barraclough for sailing the ‘fox’ so elusively and stopping the rest of us from popping the balloons attached to his boat.
A fun evening and thankyou to all the boating section.

From a quick count up I think we had just under 40 members visit and many walking around with a bag of sweets from their shop!

Thankyou to Ian for organising and to the volunteers at the tramway.
