Last Friday evening some 40 people assembled in Mr Parry’s Looms for the purpose of discussing the reorganisation of the Bluff Boating Club. The meeting was most enthusiastic, and all present were elected members, the annual subscription being fixed at 10s 6d. The minutes of the annual meeting held in 1904 were read and confirmed, and a statement presented showing assets worth £250, and liabilities £25. Messrs W. Barnsdale and R. Ling were present, representing the defunct Ocean Beach Club, and it was anticipated from their remarks that the good old "has beers’’ from the Beach would give the local club everv assistance. There were also present Messrs McKenzie (secretary. Southland Bowing Association) and Gilchrist (secretary Hailway Bowing Club). Both gentlemen addressed the meeting, and gave much valuable advice, with the hope tllfit the Bluff Club would soon resume their former status in rowingcircles. The election: of officers for the ensuing term resulted as follows : —President, Mayor of Campbelltou n (Mr G. A. Whealler) ; Vice-presidents Dr Torrance, Messrs G. B. George, C. Tulloch. W.
