At about 12.30pm, on 7th November, we assembled at the Baldwin’s rural estate on Sussex Inlet Road where we were joined by another 20 or so paddling and social members and friends for our inaugural “Sports Day”. After fortifying ourselves with the odd festive libation and nibblies, we proceeded with an extensive and imaginative programme of strenuous events. All who attended agreed that this was one of the best social events we had so far enjoyed as a club and we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Maxine and Graham in particular for opening up their home to us all, as well as the meticulous organisation and hard work which they and their helpers undertook to make this such a memorable occasion. Also the club would like to thank the following Sussex businesses for their generous contributions of prizes awarded at this function, namely: Thongs on the Beach; Southside Marina & Pelican Shores; Cuddy Woodfire Pizzeria; Riviera; Jopen Cafe; Seacrest Café; Batesy’s Fish Shop; Be Indulgent; Scott’s Place and the Chicken Shop. Your support of our club is most appreciated.
