The Club is celebrating its 40th anniversary by holding a function/camp/paddle at Cable Bay Holiday Park over the weekend of Sat 21st & Sun 22nd March, 2015.
We have reserved a camping area at the camping ground together with a separate area for the function and all present and past members are welcome to participate. The format is a paddle round Pepin Island Sat and/or Sun with a potluck dinner on the Sat night followed by some reminisces and tales by past presidents and members.
White water paddlers are welcome to paddle the Rai, Pelorus or Waimea rivers (or others, flows permitting) and join the Sat evening celebration at Cable Bay. Please advise your attendance and/or camp booking to Bob Gordon at (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to March 17th.
We would appreciate an idea of the pot-luck dish you are planning/bringing when you advise your booking. We also intend to arrange a medium sized marquee for the function, any sources or suggestions for supply of the marquee would be appreciated (include in email to Bob as above please).
There will be electric power available at the event location for lighting etc, and the 3 campground BBQs will be available also. Participants are welcome to provide their own BBQs if needed for their dishes. The camp has the usual facilities for cooking, kitchen etc and the toilets are handy to the event location.
Costs are $15 per person per night paid to Bob at the function (cash or cheque please) or to the Club online at 03-0703- 0453735-00; please use your initial & surname plus ‘anniversary’ in the reference field for the online payment. There will be fruit juice supplied, other refreshments will be BYO please.
While there will be some chairs and picnic tables available, it is recommended participants bring a chair and if you have a camp table that would also be appreciated.
We will advise any further details as they become available.
