We'd love to please hear from people who'd like to join in on this day, to see if we have enough support to run it this year. 

For quite a few years now, the LBT has hosted a visit from the Hazara community in Hobart. It's a really enjoyable day try out rowing a skiff or grebe, and can go on short Nancy cruises too. The community brings a wonderfully delicious picnic to share. Last time there was almost 70 people, lots of laughter, and queues to have a go in every different type of boat! 

The visit also is an opportunity to chat, clock up a few kilometres for their driving licences, and enjoy being in the Huon. 

* Skiffs - aim to have 2 teams of two people to take turns taking crews out. 
* Just one person per grebe is needed as a cox to accompany a crew. 
* Help is needed around the shed for general welcoming, pointing out where things are, that chairs can be taken outside, fitting life jackets on kids, corralling crews, etc. 
* Martin and Deb will take out the Nancy, but other skippers and crew are also welcome. 

Usually starts about 10 to 10:30am, and finishes by about 1 or 2pm. 
Everyone is welcome to come for the all or part of the time. 
If you want, bring a plate or excess garden produce to share. 
It is dependent on good weather.
If we could please get expressions of interest by Monday 19th May (email
