Well done everybody for mucking-in with the Bay Gala today :D

Despite the "now traditional" start of the Monsoon Season at 2.25pm this year, plenty of activity
at the display scopes at the stall, and "another lucky winner!" of the raffle.

And "exceedingly good cakes" from Priti & family!

Thank you Pete :oops:

But I have to say that all I did was with Paul "in absentia" was to "plug in and switch on" all the prep that
Paul (& Kirsty) have all organised & on-standby ready to setup for the Gala Days and the other occasional events
that the Club sets-up directly or takes part in.

Mind you, there was still a puddle on my garage floor on Sunday from the water off the gazebo!
The afternoons of Bay Gala Days must have some bizarre statistical relationship to meterological
probability of Biblical-grade deluges that is beyond the understanding of science as we know it... :shock:
