Dear Sailors and Friends,

LAST WEEKEND

ALFRED ROWING CLUB – CRABS DINNER, SATURDAY 20 JUNE 2015
The Alfred’s Crabs Dinner last Saturday night was a great success, with more than 100 people attending and a good spirit enjoyed by all.  Rochelle provided a fine roast dinner; Dornier the wines and Toni Enderli, the long distance cold-water swimmer, the after-dinner motivation!  A very successful raffle was held, and an equally successful auction, at which the naming rights for Alfred’s new quad were bought on behalf of the Rock Girl NGO.
ARC really pulled together for this one with great and valued assistance from Judy & Richard Moolenschot, Tweet & Tommy Brummer, our MC for the night Martin Vanlierde & our auctioneer Gavin Kirk.  We were happy to welcome several members of the sailing arm of the club, very definitely a number of past-rowers and members of our future, the Grassy Park Rowing Club.
We hope to have raised in excess of R40,000 through the night’s entertainment.
Thank you to all who participated, helped and advised!
Nigel
