Following the news of the planned re-opening / reunion / open-day Ted made his way to the New Hut.
Being a prat he forgot the camera! Still the mobile took a couple of shots ....
Mick Bloor I missed you...
Great to see Dean Jordan, Bill Bee, Brian (Fitz) and Jill Fitzpatrick and all the assorted thanks for being there. Shame Dick Nichols, Robert Gordon, Robin Jones and some of the hundreds of others couldn't be contacted
The Leg end that was Bill Bee (facing)
Fitz still looking the way I remembered him ... how can that be?
It has survived ..
This Glider was the last canoe I ever raced. Mick Bloor in the front, me in the back messing up our final push for the line in the semi-finals of the over 16 Double Canoe, National Scout Regatta at Holmepier Point, Nottingham in October(?) 1975. Thank to all who have paddled this beast and not wrecked it!
A big thank you to Ray Austin and the Troop for putting on the day. Best of luck for the future guys!
