You're invited to a special club night this Thursday. We're holding a novelty kayak regatta starting at 6:00pm. Afterwards we invite you to stick around for takeaway Pizzas in the clubrooms while we have a chat together about our new club, and the sorts of things we're interested in doing over the rest of 2009.
For the novelty regatta, you'll need to come dressed to get wet, with a towel and change of clothes. The forecast this week is good, so we anticipate that a dip in the lake won't be too stressful. The regatta will consist of a series of novelty races out from the boatshed beach around a buoy and back again. You will be put into a team of 3. Paddling ability will be an advantage, but not a necessity! We'll even up the teams. Sample events will include the 'paddle without a paddle' relay, the 'stand in the boat' rodeo challenge, and the three-kayak-race (a.k.a. a three legged race). It's all a bit of fun. Entry will cost $5 per person to cover use of borrowed boats.
For our chat afterwards, we'll order Pizzas (about $5 each) and meet from about 7:30pm – 8:45pm to chat about our club. Things are starting to take off, and we're keen to hear what's important to you. Why are we building up a kayak club? What do we want it to achieve? Among the possible direction we can head, which ones should we start with and who's willing to volunteer a little time to put into it? It's our club, and it's us who will make it something really good that we enjoy.
Visitors will be welcome on the night, and prospective club members. We have to charge an additional $5 event insurance fee for non-members, which we hope you'll understand.
