SWEEPING STATEMENTS - SPRING EDITION 2017
BOC at the 2017 London International Boat Show
Despite the Underground and Southern Rail strikes and forecasts of inclement weather (which undoubtedly affected public attendance) the Club again had a successful presence at the London International Boat Show. With the support of John Goode, Nautical Adviser to the National Boat Shows, we were again privileged to be given a free exhibition space. Only three clubs are fortunate enough to be offered this facility, which is granted subject to the provision of an attractive and informative display, manned throughout the Show. David Harrison and Don Walker arrived the day before the Show opened to the public to set up the stand and check that all was in order. Thanks must go to them for all their work and also to those members that took their turn in manning the stand during the Show. Our continued receipt of this benefit depends on their combined efforts!

Although the stand was at one extreme end of the exhibition hall, it was also close to the ’Dream Lodge Boating Lake’ exhibit, with lots going on in the way of on-the-water events. So, with this to guide them, a good number of BOC members made their way to the Club stand and received a warm welcome there.
