Boveney August Bank Holiday
Venue: Boveney Lock
Date: 23rd Aug - 25th August 2014
25 members in 13 boats made it to Boveney Lock on the Thames to enjoy the August Bank holiday. Despite some initial hiccups with components of the Club gazebos they were eventually erected and the site completed.
The weather was good on Saturday and everyone enjoyed the evening BBQ. Sunday was spent completing a quiz, attempting various "boat handling" related challenges before heading to the Greyhound pub in Eton Wick for skittles and Sunday lunch. After a hard fought game Jenny Nicholson eventually triumphed as the skittles winner.
Once the lock had closed at 6.30 p.m. we started the serious game of duck racing with Raz Brooks declared champion. Phil Hardyman was the overall winner of the boat handling challenge.
Unfortunately the sunshine deserted us and we awoke to a soggy Bank holiday Monday and after packing away the gazebos and clearing the site those members returning to their moorings were faced with a very wet trip home.
Nevertheless, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and voted to book it again for 2015
