Fairfield Canoe Club
2019 Centenary Year

Foster Rossetto



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 do you hope to achieve in your BOM role.

In my current role, I hope to have the boat area in an orderly manner with a plan to keep equipment in good working order. With the new “looking after club boast sessions", we are encouraging all club members to look after the club boat fleet.

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