Help for boat club

Katikati Advertiser - - Sports News -

Katikati Boat Club’s old­est mem­ber Bob Raw­son has do­nated a small trac­tor to the club for launch­ing their fleet of train­ing yachts.

The club owns a 12mcon­tainer which will be used to store the train­ing yachts, the res­cue boat and now this lit­tle trac­tor, says club spokesman Don Wal­lis.

The club’s ini­tial re­quest to place the con­tainer be­side the toi­let block at the end of Beach Road was later with­drawn as it had be­come ap­par­ent there wasn’t enough room on that part of the re­serve, with the grow­ing pop­u­la­tion and in­creased pop­u­lar­ity of the area.

To give the pub­lic more room the club hopes to move their ac­tiv­ity to the fore­shore on the south side of Beach Road.

Don says the club is in the process of ask­ing Western Bay of Plenty District Coun­cil for a suit­able spot to place their con­tainer there.
