Pack Raft Course

Why didn't this rain fall in April?? Then we would have had plenty of water to run the Pack Raft Course. It may have been postponed, but a very keen group met at Penrith Whitewater Stadium to review the latest of pack rafts. They were fabulous in negotiating the whitewater course.  If you have doubts, just consider portaging 3 kilograms instead of a 22 kg plastic kayak.
