Its been a busy close season with the installation of our new Marina and stream enhancement work. As a result our membership funds are at zero and we are issuing a special SOS to our members to renew as early as possible for 2014. Insurance fees and annual lease is due to be paid now and your co-operation would be much appreciated. Our membership rates have remained the same as last year and payment can be made through this website.

Our new marina - all set and ready to go for the new season.
