I’ve collected photos of today’s Dook into an album on Flickr and posted a few here. If anyone else has photos to add, please email them to me (bjagnew[at]gmail.com.
Anne P and Maria, founders of the “Nifty Knotters”, have some fantastic news to share:
Following on from a hugely successful Halloween and Christmas sales period we are delighted (and astounded) to be able to transfer £473.50 to Marion today, which is going to bring our running total to a staggering £2200.
We are extremely grateful to all the generous buyers of the keyrings, doorstops, Christmas decorations and gnomes. We are also extremely grateful for the enthusiastic sellers of all these items, and the makers, and we are particularly grateful to Frances also, for her lovely knitted Christmas puddings, and to Liz and Tansy for their innovative ideas and tireless manufacturing skills. Things have been a bit hectic at times, so a well deserved rest is taken now.
There are still items for sale in the shed and in “Down the Hatch”, and the monkeyfist piggybank will always reward you with a big smile!
Many thanks to all, and a Happy New Year!
Every year the club’s two skiffs give a dozen lucky rowers a close-up view of Queensferry’s annual Loony Dook. Marion is putting a sign-up sheet in the shed for the 2019 Dook. Each boat has five crew and room for a passenger, so get in quick! (Photos from this year’s Dook.)
Launch will be at about noon on January 1st, which should give time for a leisurely row before the dooking begins.
