18th July 2015 - Let the day begin 
1pm Meet at clubhouse & safety briefing

1.30pm Depart Club House 
- paddle to the heart of Botany Bay. Afternoon kayaking in the middle of winter is always refreshing, exciting and sometimes wet. We will head down the Cooks River and out to the middle of the bay. We'll pace ourselves down AvGas Alley, dodge the container ships and oil tankers and enjoy all the hubble and bubble that is Botany Bay.

4.30 pm Return to Club House
Meet Hewie the Lamb - tonights star dinner guest

Paul Keating once said about John Hewson "I want to do him slowly". Hewie the lamb has volunteered to be our special dinner guest. He will be taking his place on the spit at 1.30 pm just as the paddlers are departing.

"I am really excited about being the guest of honour at dinner, although I am a bit nervous about the spit. Sometimes I think, oh I might get dizzy or I might fall off the pole, then I think, what the hell, what's the worst that can happen to me" 
4.30 pm - Sundowner Drinks and Beer - As the sun goes down, enjoy a post paddle drink on the President's deck overlooking the majestic Cooks River.
6 pm Dinner (actual meal may look different)

For a donation of just $10, we are offering one of the most sumptuous dinners ever seen on the banks of the Cooks River. Hewie the lamb will be the centrepiece and will be supported by dishes donated by club members.
