Awards presentation by Rowan Doyle, Technical Director.
I’d like to begin by acknowledging the traditional owners and custodians of the land and river at Fairfield, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders both past and present. We also recognise the elders of Fairfield Canoe club – those who are no longer with us and those who are with us today. The members who have coached, raced, paddled, helped each other and made the Fairfield community what it is today.
