Dragon boaters enjoy Democracy Sausage Sizzle

Following a surreal paddle along Oyster Channel to Carr’s Drive and then onwards towards Wooloweyah, Clarence Coast Dragon Boat Club enjoyed an Election Day sausage sizzle. As the sausages were cooking, paddlers had an array of scones and shortbread to taste. 

Members also rose to the challenge to submit a song to contribute to the CCDBC Election Day playlist. And what an amazing playlist it was. Congratulations to Ms Ree who took the challenge to the next level. Ms Ree chose to follow the whole campaign.
