WOSC Bonfire/Halloween Party 29th October 2016

There is never a shortage of helpers when there’s a fire involved, especially when it’s an October 29th Halloween Bonfire!

Willing club members had pulled together over the previous few Saturday working parties leading up to our Halloween night. The result was a tidy club to be proud of and, because of all that hard work, a good stock of wood to aid the building of the bonfire. No sailing club bonfire would be complete without a couple of derelict boats that Ben manages to find every year!  


The bonfire building culminated on Saturday the 29th October with Ben and his trusty gang of helpers building a fire any club would be proud of.

The evening started with a barbeque run by John W, the 6ft scary clown.  Everyone ate their fill of sausages and burgers, washed down by the odd drink or two from the bar; thanks to Rob H and his team. The children were also indulged with candy floss very kindly provided by xxx which helped fuel the excitement of the evening.

The youngsters also enjoyed making floating candles which, despite the lack of wind, managed to find water currents to slowly draw them onto the lake lighting it up like stars in the clear night sky.  Oh, and with a little help from our friendly goose who enjoyed trying to sink them. He was lucky he didn’t end up on the BBQ!

A parade of the Halloween ghouls followed. It was good to see members both new and old making such a fantastic effort, turning up as witches, ghosts and monsters in a bid to win the scariest dressed competition.   The winners were awarded with fiendish treats

Finally, the fire was lit. It roared into the dark night sky and everyone gathered around, drawn in by the warmth. All in all, a great day of fun from building to lighting up.

Don’t forget working parties happen all through the year. Why not come and join in? Saturday mornings as per – What’s on at WOSC – notifications, usually 10am till 12.30, followed by a bacon roll and cup of tea!
