Welcome to Spring everyone. So no excuses. Back on the water all you paddlers that are afraid to paddle in the dark, paddle when its too late at night, too early in the morning and afraid of the dark. We want to see full boats when we are out there at training. For those that missed Wed night a glorious sunset on the water. And on Sat the water was crystal clear and not a breathe of wind, except out of Wazzas MOUTH.
What a great Regatta we had. Was very successful with 9 teams competing. A very big thank you to the Fabulous Regatta Committee. It was a lot of hard work but on the 2 days we aced it. Thank you for organising the weather as well. We have had a look at what worked and what did not for next time. Thank you for the vollies on the Sunday. All went well. The food was great. Loved the Dragon Balls Jacqui and whoever made the chocolate slice. LOVED IT AND WANT THE RECEIPE PLEASE.
Unfortunately not even paddlers to go. Please think about the next regatta and Newcastle. See Jen Schubert.

A member of the club wishes to have a site on facebook for the MRDBC. However it has been decided at the Committee Meeting not to go ahead at this time due to the possibility of adverse comments and being unable to monitor it. We do acknowledge the good intention of having the Club being modern in this media but at this stage we will remain in the dinosaur era.
We had 3 members attend the DBNSW AGM in Sydney. The members that went really enjoyed the 2 day conference and learnt a lot of items to bring back and use in our training. Thank you Deb, Sue Cook and Mary for representing the MRD.
