Keith who joined us Nov 2011 has been teaching and taking out the newbie paddlers on Sunday morning. Keith had previously founded a youth work/outrigger club in Whakatane and hes been awesome with the newbies. Thanks heaps Keith!
We have a bunnings day lined up for May 6th at the Rockdale store..If you read this (lol) spread the word and come and buy a sausage or make a donation :).
Kyeemagh RSL held a working bee last Saturday, We had 6 of us show from our outrigger club and it was actually fun meeting our fellow RSLanites...lovely people, lovely RSL and let me repeat again they make the best chicken schnitzel!Thank you Kyeemagh RSL for taking us on board :).
Our registration of interest to compete at Vaka Eiva this year has been lodged with the organisers of the event. Accomodation is pretty much sussed thanks to Henry's relatives that live there (choice one bro) :) .Just gotta fundraise and train...plenty of time (hopefully!).
We are currently fundraising for a second (and ocean worthy) boat. So far we have fundraised approx $600 from chockies and $500 from sponsorship. We just need a couple of more grand, but at this rate we will have our second boat by March! :) .
Ok better get back to work before I get fired..happy paddling!
