With many phone calls on the Friday night The Northern Boating Club where adamant that they where going to have the race. As some of our fraternity had turned up on the Thursday The Candy’s all the way from Taihape and where give a real royal welcome over the next few days. It was decided that we would all meet at the boating club at 10 am on Saturday morning. As I came through Rauawi the water was  like a mill pond no wind or rain,as it was hosing down at Snell’s Beach when I left. It was decided that we run the meeting out side the boat club along  the foreshore, from the pub up to the road bridge. 4/5 laps making the distance about half of what it would have been from Rauiwi to Dargaville in the form of a poker Run. Boats from out town Graham and Jan/Dave and Anne  and myself and  4 locals but one didn’t make the water We all finish around 2 30 pm and had drinks and dinner and a good time was had by all.
