Winter Whales 17/7/16 Report:
LAST SUNDAY we chickened out. Not from the swim, but back on the deck after it.
The Void cooked up some chooks (does anyone remember when we started calling them chickens ?) as attending numbers were to be down due to absent members on breakaway tours.
These were consumed with gusto – and mayonnaise with pepper. The left-overs are to be reduced to a stock base for a future offering of Jewish Penicillin.
All parts of the country were hosting those said Whale grandfathers, AFL Fans and wine experts (and one Tasmanian) over the weekend.
It was reported one must have gone to the Outback as he fell off a wagon.
The meeting followed the fowls and the Captain said we were all winners which increased his popularity. We welcomed a rare visit from Bibes and the Raffle was taken by D Mac with Pudgy getting the Sealed Handicap.
There was a rescission motion carried to now attend the Top End Shield as the rest of the Clubs in that comp. Decided to put it on a date that suits us, so pencil in Sunday 07August for the trip to SE Qld for that one.
The meeting broke up and we all went straight home. ROAD THRILL
