Committed to the cause
Sale Field & Game members are committed to conservation, as Simon Webster showed during a working bee on Lake Wellington.
The boat crew were doing nest box maintenance along the Marley Point foreshore when Simon found himself in a precarious position. “I was the fixer on the front of the boat and sometimes getting into the boxes there is a bit of a challenge,” he said. “I grabbed onto the tree and that went well, but Rob Del Busso came up to the front of the boat to help and that tipped the balance for me.”
Simon was left hanging, with his feet hooked in the boat and his hands gripping the log, a situation easily recoverable had Rob grabbed his life jacket. “Rob could have grabbed me but in his fit of laughter he backed away which moved the boat further and stretched me out completely,” Simon said. “I could see the funny side of it, I’ll never live it down.” The photos were taken by Gary Howard who was in another boat.
