Sulito Parker 325 ( formally "No Dramas")congrats Barry
Selina Superseal 26
Arkadina Superseal 26
Plus a few more weather permitting !!


Several of you have asked what to bring.

Its just a picnic on the pontoon so bring what you would normally bring to a picnic.
We are at the end of the pontoon and will set up a long table for food to be put on.

"KISS" keep it simple -- finger foods, quiche/ salad/tomatoes, pudding, stawberries, raspberries also welcome etc.

The key to this success is to contribute something a little extra for all to share something that is perhaps a specialty that you can easily prepare on board.

As you all know i am a bakery so i will bring several specialty breads from my bakery for all to try along with several cheeses.

Phil and Carol on "Macoma" do a wonderful Marmite twist which several of us have tried at previous rallies.

If you are not sure please let ring me and have a chat and i can let you know what others are doing
(we dont want everyone brining sausage rolls --- If you get my drift

Forecast not looking too bad so see you all there

Peter and Jenny
