Winter Wednesdays

Now that the nights are drawing in we're putting together a series of social evenings at the club house called 'Winter Wednesdays'. The idea is to have an informal midweek get together, watch a canoe / kayak movie, slideshow or simply tell a few stories around the woodburning stove. Get down to the club house between 7.30 and 8pm.
