A big thank you to Brian for turning 70, agreeing to a party and making us all wear fancy dress! There were some great costumes along the ‘B G’ theme, some members totally unrecognisable. We had a rash of Bad Guys, a glut of Bunny Girls, Green & Black, a buxom schoolgirl … named Brian, Batmen, Barbies and Ken, burglars, a British Gladiator, even a Hot Dog (great work, Jean) … so much imagination.
Just over 80 turned up to celebrate seven decades of Brian. It was great to see some former crew paddlers of Brian’s and former members of the club – Lucy Perrett – the Club’s first Olympic finalist, Rod Kinch, Heather Brough (a former K2 partner of Brian’s).
There was lovely food by Sabine and Jo, an amazing array of puddings from us all and a magnificent chocolate and Guinness cake, courtesy of Georgia and Imogen. Then music and dancing. Oh what a night!
