Almost 25 members and family turned up during Sunday afternoon to check out the planned new venue for our meetings – the Otaihanga Boating Club.


It was a glorious afternoon, with Ian on the BBQ churning out sausages and onions, which were happily consumed in bread with Karyn’s special sauces, and washed down with liquid refreshments.

The setting is impressive, and even comes with built-in photographic opportunities – just imagine the sunsets from here.

The interior is spacious and suitable for our meetings .. it even includes a built-in overhead projector. However some thought will be needed on how best to display prints for our salons.

It was a most enjoyable afternoon, and all those who came were very positive and supportive of the planned move to this venue next year.
