At the first race of the season, the Club dedicated its gear shed to the memory of late member, Dave Bortfeld.
Apart from being an active member of the Club in recent years, Dave was also a keen mountain biker and adventure racer, and could always be counted on to be doing something active, adventurous, and outside his comfort zone.
In his role as manager of parks and Gardens with the Great Lakes Council, Dave was instrumental in getting the Club its fantastic gear shed located right at the swim start of our racecourse at Forster Keys.
A memorial plaque was suggested and commissioned by Life member Keith Pearce, and installed on the shed door. Dave’s life partner and former Club Member Jodi-Lee Flanagan was on hand to see the dedication.
