Paddling Back to Normal – but work continues

Thanks for your patience while we have been adding the new balcony/alfresco area – those of you who attended the race last Sunday got to experience it and the reaction was ‘WOW’.  However there are still a range of minor finishing jobs to be completed over the next few weeks.
Note: The balcony area is locked and not accessible for the next week while the floor surface finished.

Busy Bee Helpers – MANY THANKS

We need to offer a big thank you to the 25 or so members who have contributed time during the building works: the demolition in February,  Friday’s moving building materials out (and an unexpected bonus helping to lift massive steel beams on the balcony), and then the huge clean-up on Saturday afternoon to make the Club presentable for the race on Sunday.

Water, Sawdust & Iron Filings

Many Club and member boats directly below the new balcony (south-east corner) have been exposed to rain water, saw dust and iron filings dropping from above while the roof and floor were missing.  Please be careful removing those boats – some are heavier from the water!  We hope no permanent damage has been done, since the builder endeavoured to protect boats from the worst materials.

Rob Fry Memorial Race – Thanks

A special thanks to all the members who made our annual race last Sunday a huge success, and especially to Lee Edwards for directing the event perfectly for the third time. The results are here.

Unite on the Swan raft-up – this Sunday

It’s on again this Sunday at 7am in East Perth – details here. If you would like to participate but don’t have your own craft or roof racks please contact Rosalie at CWA as they may be able to assist you. 0438 754 411

SAND – Please wash and wipe your feet

We now have a special jarrah staircase so let’s all try harder to wash and wipe our feet before leaving the boat area – this will make cleaning the foyer and changerooms easier too!
