We must start by saying WELL DONE to our very talented Golden Falls Team. In spite of all the rain showers, we created another very special event which again brought out the best in everyone. If fun is an important measuring stick, we earned Olympic Gold !

Apart from the impressive action on the water, how about that great ROAST PIG BBQ and the huge special Bangers ! That really was something special. Many thanks to Tommy Whelan and his new Electric Roasting Spit, to Dermot Fenton and all our Members who supplied the exotic salads, to Martin Cullinan for his U2 Sound System, to Donal for the new LCD SplashEye system – and of course to our Skiers who came from all over our Island and the UK.
