Club news
Altona - The season starts on 6 October, time to get back on the water.

Black Rock - Rumours of Bullet Steel coming to Black Rock to make the fleet even faster. Hopefully the pig will still be flying at Black Rock as well.

Elwood - Blueberries has decided this is the year.

Gippsland - We still don't know who Deadly Chicken is. If you're in Gippsland send clues!

Somers - Expecting 4 125s on the water at Somers each weekend. If they can crack 5, they might have the biggest fleet in the state.

Stawell - Tell us what's happening, because we're coming up for the cup day regatta.

PS Yes, I know that there are little (updated)/(same as last newsletter) comments on a lot of this. I did it to help me, then realised it might help you too, so I left them in.
