Puddin ’n’ Porter 2015

We had another successful Puddin’n’ Porter in Lecarrow on the weekend of the 11th & 12th September, despite the inclement weather conditions. Friday was an absolute washout however this did not deter the hardy ones from travelling to Lecarrow in time for the branch meeting in Kellys followed by a few beers and some ‘fine’ music…a little loud for the small crowd….can’t win ‘em all!

Saturday brightened up nicely and we held the traditional Wine & Cheese in the harbour, with some Puddin’ & Porter, Puddin’ complements of Jennifer and Porter compliments of Eric. We also had an impromptu fashion show with Andy & Eric modeling Theresa’s latest creations followed by Music on the Quay by Billy & Pat ….it came close to a duel of the banjo’s,

Spam ‘n’ Porter??? I don’t think so!

Following ‘dinner on board’ we all headed to Coffeys for the main feature, Pub Prepared Puddin’ and of course the inimitable talent show, featuring a vast variety of acts! While the competition was close we had a clear winner in Trish from Misty Mooring …. Congrats Trish (she was happy to be reminded of her win on Sunday morning).

Lets hope the weather improves for next year and we get back to the normal 40 boats in Lecarrow style.

Happy boating!
