Fairfield Canoe Club
2019 Centenary Year

When and why did you join the club

I joined FCC in 1974, via Rym Svambarys. Kayaking was a complementary sport for upper body work during summer, since I umpired football in winter. I got hooked.

Any funny or unusual things that have happened to you at the club, or highlights.

One funny happening at the club was seeing Rym and another 2 people scatter, when a kookaburra dropped a snake in their midst- thankfully it was more scared than them.

What have you achieved in your BOM role?

In my role as fleet and boat storage director, I aimed to have the boat area in an orderly manner with a plan to keep equipment in good working order. I think, with the help of other members and directors, that I've left the racking system in a more orderly and organised fashion and that the fleet is sound looking forward.

It has been a priviledge to have been a member for almost 50 years.
