“Meet n Greet” Dinner Friday night @ 6:30 pm Paringa Hotel Bistro. 

Briefing at Arthur Shepard Memorial Park 9:45am Sat 17th Feb.

Boats leave the Renmark Riverfront Precinct 11am for Woolshed Brewery.

There will be a Show N Shine judged throughout the day and some fun 

classes including best themed or dressed up, Loudest boat etc.

We would love to see some locals register to come on the run or come 

down to the Renmark Riverfront to see all the boats leave.

Last Run prior to the floods in 2022 we had 72 Ol’ Skool Boats make the trip up to the Woolshed.
