Work on converting the John Bartels into an octoscull continued last night as club members turned up to start sanding back the bow. This is expected to continue through Saturday and Sunday as we prepare for next week's painting.
Thanks to Rick Amoore for sending this photo in. He's suggested 'Men's Committee Meeting Interrupted by Belligerent Workers' as a caption, but would like other members' ideas. (Might be a good start. -Ed)
We are still looking for more volunteers to do the painting next week and rigging the week after. If you have some spare time over the next few weeks, please send your availability to Walter at Waltergrooten1@gmail.com.
Further details are available on our Events Calendar.
