Eulogy for Rose’s funeral – Wednesday 19th October, 2016

Dear Rose,

I’m writing this letter as you left suddenly and there was still so much to be said. Not just by me. Lots of your friends have expressed sadness and regret that they didn’t get a chance to express how they felt. 

It’s funny isn’t it?    We have such strong feelings for each other but we adopt the attitude of ‘we can express that at another time, when it really counts!’ As in this case, often that time never comes.

Darebin Double Dippers’ tribute to Rose Curtis

It all started in 1996 when Rose went on a Rutherglen winery walkabout weekend with a mutual friend and suggested that she’d like to learn to kayak and do the Murray River marathon. Rose met Carolyn Dun, who knew Janice Lane who knew Louise Ray. Rose had been in a kayak before and knew which club to join, the Fairfield Canoe Club. It was the beginning of the Darebin Double Dippers.

Come and Try Canoeing and Kayaking 4/12/2016

The course is aimed at giving participants a brief sample of both canoeing and kayaking. You will spend most of the time on the water getting to feel what it is like in both canoes and kayaks. It is a great way to try the activity if you are not quite sure whether the sport is for you. The come and try session is a great stepping stone to the other FCC courses.

The course goes for approximately 2.5 hours.

The cost of this one-off session is $30.
