The East Freo Power 14s had their 2012 trophy presentation at the Swan Yacht Club before boarding a couple of boats for a cruise up the river and taking a plunge in the icy waters off Rocky Bay.
A large crowd gathered for the trophy presentation outside at the Swan Yacht Club, before a group of about 50 players, parents and siblings gathered for the cruise on the Swan. The day was made possible by the generosity of the Pinfold and Jaques families who provided the water transport for the day and looked after all the logistics including the food and drinks. Their hospitality was first class and very much appreciated by all parents and players.
The weather gods were in our favour and boating conditions were perfect as the team positioned themselves on the upper decks and made like movie stars as we cruised down the Swan. The parents all enjoyed the quiet and took in the sun, views, drinks and nibbles on the lower deck.
Chris Pinfold did the cooking on the BBQ and the players resembled a pack of ravenous wild dogs as they devoured all the food and drinks laid before them. Luckily Chris anticipated this, and extras were on hand for the parents and siblings so no one went without. The great spread was washed down with cool drinks for the kids and a few light ales and wines for the parents.
It was a great way to end the season, check out all the photos on Facebook.
