Weiti Boating Club 50th Jubilee
Friday 23rd March to Sunday 25th March 2018
The Weiti Boating Club will be celebrating its 50th Jubilee in March 2018. Certainly a milestone for the Club and so with that we wish to invite you to join us in these celebrations. Although the actual inception of the WBC was in November 1968, we have brought the celebration forward to March 2018 for reasons of more settled weather.
Of course some of you we haven’t seen for a while, so here's an opportunity to come and be a part of this weekend as over the Club’s 50 year history each of you has had a part to play and today we have facilities, management and a programme that has taken its cue from past members giving us what we have presently. For that, the current members are very grateful.
The programme is:
Friday 23rd March - ‘meet and greet’ at the Weiti Boating Club that evening. It will include catered finger food with bar facilities available.
Saturday 24th March - Saturday morning is programme ‘free’ but we may put together a bus to visit the Matakana markets & river cruise prior to the dinner and entertainment on Saturday evening. This dinner event will be off site for reasons of numbers and again we're hopeful that you will register early as this will be a quality and fun evening. Cost is anticipated to be $50.00 per head (subsidised by the Club) for a 3 course meal and drinks with bar facilities in addition as required.
Sunday 25th March - Sunday morning we invite you back down to the Clubhouse for coffee to participate in or watch our family programme of games and entertainment. We intend to sail a race for the ‘Commodores Cup' on this day as well and give an open invitation to those that might like to participate to jump on board boats that have room available for a couple of hours around the cans! In the afternoon we will have formal speeches from invited guests and dignitaries with catered finger food and bar facilities available.
Please register online below or phone the Club Manager Katie Clark on 09 424 5905.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
