Yes, Training will continue as usual for you with Muster at the usual time of 12:45pm with Cathy your Age Group Manager and Ashleigh.

Theres a few loose ends to tie up but I’m sure that I can find the right volunteers to ensure this can all go-ahead.

09th-10th Feb Junior Training and Junior Carnival #3 Port Elliot

Nippers Training 9th Feb

As usual with a Port Elliot Carnival, and with the amount of families that choose to stay at or around Port Elliot for the weekend, Training has been arranged in conjunction with the Port Elliot Nippers on Saturday 9th of February. Training will start at the usual time with a quick muster on the beach.
