The Log July 2002 page 9 DSC web page has been updated Check it out today www.dwnsail.com.au Sailing Results are listed each monday The Log is now available on line Its hard to believe that June has passed already! The NT Champs are upon us and fundraising is an ever familiar word Who is on raffle duty this week? It cant be my turn again to cook the BBQ again!? I never want to peel or see another onion! I suppose it will be worth all the effort in the end! This month has seen Chris Lane achieve some well deserved success! Congratulations Chris for not only being in the winning Team in Teams Racing, but also for achieving a first in the Frogs handicap in the Patrons Trophy! Well done also to Jake Collins for returning to the Minnow fleet after a broken arm and for finishing his first race! Its just goes to show that if you keep at it, in the end you will triumph! Racing during the month has been both fiercely competitive and friendly (especially between Kim and Mark)! All the Minnows have continued to try their very best and have been rewarded accordingly. Minnow sailors, Mums and Dads would like to pass on their thanks to Jenny, Stewart, Olly and the NTYA for bringing Bunny to Darwin to share his knowledge during Youthsail. The NT Champs and Youthsail brought the return of our friends from Gove. The Tadpoles have been nurtured by every Minnows friend, Glen Aitchison thank you for your tlc and for passing on your knowledge Glen dont suppose youve considered moving to Darwin? Glen was accompanied to Darwin by his sons Julian and Todd, together with the Daniels family (Karen, Justine, Adam and Blake Dad must have stayed home for the holiday!), and Jack Bush (with his brother Darcy, Mum and Dad) it was great to see them again and to see how much the children had improved and grown over the year. If sailing is about making friends, then the Gove participants have most definitely found a place in the hearts of the Darwin Minnows and their families. Thanks to all the Darwin parents who made the Champs (and the lead up to the Champs) so successful. A special thanks to Lesley and Trevor for Youthsail Lite and to Ian Battenburg, Rick Edmonds and Kim Hamilton for keeping a watchful eye (as always) over proceedings. Thanks also to Klever Kleaver (Glen and Jo) for the magnificent BBQ dinner! A final thank you to Sharon and Lindsay Lane for sewing the Minnow show bags, making curries, cooking the BBQs and giving above and beyond the call of duty! STOP PRESS: MARK EDMONDS, KIM NEENAN, MAX COLLINS, DOUGLAS CAMPBELL, DEAN BENNETT AND REES BLAKELY (RESERVE) HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO REPRESENT THE NT IN THE SUKMA GAMES IN SEPTEMBER 2002. WATCH OUT FOR MORE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS!
