Twelve people put in a huge effort at Cecil Peak over the weekend of April 5-6 cleaning inside and outside the Lodge, clearing gutters and roofs, overhanging trees, digging the garden, fixing curtain rails, clearing spider webs, water blasting weatherboards, wrought iron gates and stone gate posts, weed eating all over, repairing doors and leaky taps.
This effort was to acknowledge the goodwill and kindness toward the Club over the years from Philip and Kate Rive the Farm Managers.
We met the Cecil Peak barge at Wye Creek on Saturday morning taking all the gear in Bert’s Rangie and trailer across the lake in a wild southerly.
Early in the voyage the tow rope attached to Cecil Peak’s Stabicraft snapped and it looked like the boat would end up on the rocks.
Bert lost his rake overboard trying to snag the rope end before finally managing to get a snatch strap fixed between the boat and barge.
A very busy enjoyable and worthwhile two days and Cecil Peak Lodge is no doubt a much more memorable place for the people involved.
