Archer Eade Memorial & The Gauntlet Trophy

This is part of the Victorian Championship Series for  the Inboards / Hydros and a Club day for the Outboards.

The Race day is a fundraising weekend for SIDS. Last year we raised approx. $20,000 with help from all of the race goers that attended. This was collected from collection tins, a Sat BBQ and an auction of various items ( i.e.: weekend holidays to clothing etc… Donations are gladly accepted from anyone - please contact John Cooper or vie return
e-mail)  that is held on the Saturday evening for ALL. This is usually a highlight of the weekend and it’s for a good cause and it’s a time that we can all band together for a feed a few drinks and raise some money for those that need our assistance.

·         Obviously if the entries could be sent in as early as possible for program and catering purposes ( especially for the Sat BBQ)  it would be appreciated as we all know we can do more and tend to run smoothly when notice is given.

There is no cost for spectators.

Lake Charm is a little Oasis with sandy beaches in-between a freshwater lake and grass leading right down to the bank with palm trees for shade right on the foreshore. Quite an amazing little place really.  The wind can pick up but we can usually find a course to suit.
