Rutland Day 2010

The club had a display stand at the show today which was really well attended. As well as photos and leaflets about the club and a rather magnificent banner, there were a number of boats available for people to try out...and didn't they just.

A wide variety of people of all ages wriggled into buoyancy aids and had a go on the water - coming off, eyes sparkling, grinning from one side of their faces to the other and full of excitement for paddling.

Trevor, Jools and Richard were in their element and you were more likely to get a bone off a gnawing dog than prise Trevor from the double. Judith, Christine and Martin went more calmly about ensuring that everyone had a good time. Thank you to everyone who helped out and in particular to Martin for making it happen.

What a busy summer we've had - club trips, individual trips, barbecues and camping, raft races and trying out different boats. Much of what we got up to is revealed in this newsletter. . . .
