On Friday 4th December, nearly 30 River Dragons gathered at Lake Conjola caravan park ready for the Christmas party next day. Brenton brought “Dragonfly” from Sussex on the club’s purpose-built trailer. Saturday dawned even better than the day before and our ranks quickly expanded to an impressive 40 active paddlers and social members. Al fresco dining was the order of the day, the general eating, drinking and being merry being complemented by three sessions on “Dragonfly” as well as swimming, surfing, kayaking and oyster hunting (!) during the day. More than 20 members were having such a good time that they stayed over for another night and enjoyed a hearty breakfast of bacon & eggs on toast.
