Bass social events
There are two key events during the week that are as iconic as the overall race. All crews are encouraged to join in the camaraderie and have a bit of fun to help make the week to remember.
Red Faces – Monday 4 January at Moruya Golf Club
This is a time for your crew to get your talent on. Whether its singing a song, doing a dance, a short 2-3minute skit is all that’s required to have a bit of fun. Just like on TV there’ll be a gong and 3 judges so do your best to impress. This has been an event tradition and its always great fun.
Pick a bum – Thursday 7 January Tathra Beach Country Club
Pick a bum is a bass traditional event organised by the Tathra SLSC members. It hasn’t been held over the last 3 or so GBSMs so we’re glad to bring back this component. It’s a good laugh for rowers after five of the toughest days rowing and a chance for the crews to get together socially. We’re not going to go to too much detail here but don’t worry it’s perfectly safe and voluntary for participants.
Final Presentation afternoon – Saturday 9 January at Tathra Beach Country Club.
This is a great opportunity for all involved in the event to let their hair down. The club are putting on a band to provide entertainment for rowers, and we’ve decided to host it at the same location of the final campsite to ensure people do not have to drive far to get home. Its important rowers drink responsibly and the club will be following RSA protocols.
