OUTRIGGING

OUTRIGGER Whitsunday (OW) celebrated their 2012 season with their annual general meeting and awards night on October 28.

The new committee was appointed for 2013 with the president role being handed over from Terry Kemp to OW junior coach Adam Joyce. The former president gave a report on this season that included praise for the junior paddlers who had done superbly to achieve medal results at each of the regattas they attended this year, with some racing still to come in the Cook Islands in November. Kemp and 2012 committee then presented a life membership to Peter Chamberlain for his tireless commitment and dedication to the club since getting involved in 2000. Mark Bell was also honoured on the night, presented with honorary membership for his continual support towards fundraising events and the Airlie Beach regatta. The new committee will be working together to help the club entice and retain social and competitive membership for 2013. OW have already started training for the 2013 season and anyone interested in getting on the water for social or competitive training should contact vice president Renee Martin on 0412 448 805.
