On Friday 20 March 2020, FCC members Tony, Robin and Mick were paddling near Bellbird and they were lucky enough to meet one of the Yarra's slipperier bank dwellers.  Various versions of the story have been presented - wondering which, if any, is closest to the truth?

Samuel's version

This article appeared in this week’s journal of ‘Snake Tails’, a local rag for the Snake and Eel community of the Yarra River down from Dight’s Falls and beyond.

Tom Ohman celebration. Update - photos from the day

Tom, one of two life members at Fairfield, is moving interstate.

Over his decades with Fairfield he has helped put our Canoe Club in the forefront of the canoeing community. To celebrate Tom the Canoeist, for his contribution and the history he has helped create we had a few drinks and nibbles on Sunday 24th February. A great crowd turned up to thank Tom, to name a C4 "The Ohman" and to gratefully accept a magnificent timber k2 from the 1956 olympic era.
