Sam's done the honours again and put together our obligatory film (he's a film production student at uni now, so we've doubled his pay).

The 2 stars ready for their Medway trip. They looked a lot less lively at the other end!
We did the trip in good time so we must have had a reasonable pace overall. Graeme Redrup and 3 of the 3 stars came along and were very helpful. Robert Kimber and James Hurst specialised in directing the 2 stars to river right every time a boat was coming in the other direction. With their bright orange cags they were very easy to spot.
Staycation this year may well have been one of the busiest - 56 people on the water in two sessions on the Monday, having turned away a further 50! I wonder if the weather had something to do with it.
Thursday was somewhat quieter ... again the torrential rain may have had a bearing on that! Thanks to everyone who came along to help get everyone on the water.
It was warm, it was wet, for some of us it was scary.
But for everyone it was brilliant.
GDSCC hosted two very successful evenings with approximately 76 on the water. We received donations of £65.97 and everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves, some coming to both Wednesday and Friday session.
The brave and plentiful scouts of Camelsdale made a momentous deck run on the evening of 22nd June 2015 from one bank to the other. Bonkers.
