Port Fonty Days:
These are usually Sundays once a month when a few members get together at the boat house and have an outing on the river, returning for a picnic lunch. The Society boats are used and those of members who are there. It is a good opportunity for a member without a boat to come along and join a crew – if you are not very experienced there will always be someone to coach you. You need to inform Debbie Dobson ( if you intend to come along as getting crews organised is essential for a reasonable departure time!
