Rock and Roll 13-16 March 2020 Batemans Bay
The Club will return to beautiful Batemans Bay in March 2020 to
hold its premier 3-day annual event. Our base will again be the
Batemans Bay Beach Resort adjacent to Corrigans Beach. The
resort offers a broad range of accommodation options – from self-
contained villas to unpowered tent sites. This location provides an
easy launching to a wide variety of paddling destinations including
the iconic Tollgate Islands, the natural coastline of Murramarang
National Park and the Clyde River and its wide, protected estuary.
The program will follow the usual structure with a welcome event
on the Friday evening, hosted by the team from Expedition Kayaks.
Trips will be offered on Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings,
commencing after the usual muster at the marquee. Participation in
the training activities on offer will be based on registration through
the Club website prior to the event.
There will be some off-water training activities and novelty events
offered on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
The traditional R’nR dinner on Saturday night will be held at the
Catalina Club, an easy stroll from our accommodation. Apart from
enjoying good company and a decent feed, we will be entertained by
an eminent guest speaker.
A BBQ will be run at Saturday lunchtime and a food van will be
on site for Sunday evening before the screening of entries for the
Pogies award (please start thinking about your entry now).
An innovation for R’nR 2020 will be a New Members’ and R’nR
First Timers’ breakfast on the Saturday morning, hosted by our Vice
President, Mark Fuller. This will help guide these folk through the
various R’nR activities, and introduce them to some of other members
of the Club’s leadership group.
So, put the dates of 13-16 March 2020 in your diary now, and book
your accommodation early. The resort is offering a 10% discount
to Club members, but to achieve this bookings must be done by
phone, not on the Internet. Our HQ marquee and exhibition area
will be in front of Cabin 5. Check the resort’s website https://beachresort.
com.au for its site plan and then call 1800 217 533 to make
a booking for your chosen option.
