Sports and Raft Race on 26th July 2003

By some miracle the 26th July was a beautiful day in what has not been the hottest of summers. Brilliant, Great fun!, not to be missed and I'll be back next year with a bigger and better raft were just some of the comments from the large field of spectators and participants. Itís the weekend when everyone who has left comes home and more and more second homers and holiday makers make sure they are here to join the good turn out of locals.

And itís the weekend when everyone running it works extremely hard especially the refreshment team – Rena MacCorquodale and Kathy Kelly – and the many in the field holding tapes, supervising throwing and giving out prizes to the winners and stickers to the all the children. David Wilson did a great job overseeing the whole show and moving things along so we were home in time to rest and change and get to the Barbeque at Baligarve.

At the end of the day the committee, some of whom have been organising the event for ten to fifteen years, resigned with the exception of Archie MacGillivray. So we say goodbye to David White, Alison MacLean, Kathy Kelly, Julian Wormleighton. David Wilson, Donald Black. Thank you all for your work over the years and thanks to the many helpers who made the day so memorable.
