Out­rig­gers or­der new ca­noe

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

WE have fi­nally made the move and or­dered our new light­weight ca­noe to be build by a ca­noe builder down in Townsville.

With the won­der­ful sup­port of the Dou­glas Com­mu­nity, we were able to place the or­der with a de­posit, and we now need to raise the fi­nal $7000.00 to pay for it on com­ple­tion.

We have a num­ber of find­rais­ing events com­ing up over the next few months, but the first is this Sun­day, Septem­ber 22, at the out­rig­ger pav­il­ion in Spin­naker Way at 8am with a Spring Cleanout Garage Sale.

This new light­weight ca­noe will most def­i­nitely be named the Dou­glas com­mu­nity ca­noe, as it would not have been pos­si­ble to get this close with­out the in­cred­i­ble sup­port of our lo­cals who have kept us go­ing on our fundrais­ing quest since the be­gin­ning of this year, to make this new pur­chase pos­si­ble.

We hope to col­lect the new ca­noe be­fore the end of 2013, and we will have a launch­ing and bless­ing cer­e­mony here in Port Dou­glas that we hope ev­ery­one that has con­trib­uted to its pur­chase from raf­fle tick­ets to do­na­tions or spon­sor­ship will join us for, wish­ing her safe trav­els and great suc­cess in her fu­ture re­gat­tas.

Many thanks to all of you for your con­tin­ued sup­port along the way to get­ting to this ex­cit­ing point.

cheers for now,
