This coming Saturday there will be fun for kids of all ages at HYC.
We will start with the Pumpkin Race in the morning, always a family favorite. This will be a simple race except for catchin' the pumpkins of course.
And no you don't have to build your own boat like our friend above, plus I think this might be a rule 42 infraction, but there are a few twists. Here is the gist of the extra rules...
After starting and before finishing a boat must pick up at least 1 pumpkin by any method provided all crewmembers remain onboard. After the finish bring your catch into the club and enjoy some lunch while the results are calculated. Each boat's corrected time will be adjusted according to their haul of pumpkins and there will be some mystery prizes too.
To help rebuild our strength for the afternoon, there will be a bowl of chilli for lunch prepared for us all by Femke and Jenny. Thanks Girls!
So after a chance to warm up beside the fire and perhaps a crew change you will be ready for the Captain's Broom. What are we doing this year?
Well something fun and a little different of course, and given that we are coming into the Halloween season, a little mysterious too because you'll have to come down and join in to find out what.
For the kids who want to stay ashore during the afternoon we will have some fun and games and a movie for you to watch too.
I hope you can join us for the day with your family, friends and crews. Please let us know of your intention to race by reply or by registering with the Club office.
