Bingo night & Saz’s endurance test

The bingo night was a great success. Over 12 rowers and friends turned up and the lounge full to capacity. Steve did a brilliant job of calling with lots of lots of improvised and hilarious riming numbers, “your place or mine, sixty nine”. We took £166 with lots of prizes donated by members including two magnificent chocolate cakes baked by the one and only chocolate cake cook!

A short announcement was made by Si, informing all present of Saz’s participation in The Trip to Remember, Cycling 50.5 miles, rowing 90 nautical miles and Running from Porthmadog to the top of Snowdon
The Trip to Remember team were welcomed in by our two boats also Geoff and Jill in Rubber Duck just after 3pm on Sunday 10th July. Their surf boat was greeted by a cheering crowd and a magnificent banner created by Max, Elaine and Si which was much appreciated by the team’ They had taken 22 hours to row the journey from Arklow to Porthmadog having completed a mad sprint on bicycles from Dublin to Arklow. Having rested and had something to eat and drink, they all set off at a steady trot destined to finish at the top of Snowdon sometime late afternoon. A great WELL DONE to Saz for competing in this epic endurance  venture.
