Bishopdale Social Club organised a church boating day at Lake Hood, Ashburton on a sunny Sunday in February recently.  It was a great event, with 3 boats running flat out the entire day, teaching kids to waterski and wakeboard, as well as giving the experienced skiers a good go around the lake!  There was a relaxed family vibe, with everyone bringing a picnic and friends were welcome too.  We are quite sure some of the older ‘kids’ among us had sore muscles on Monday, which is always the sign of a good weekend! We love taking these opportunities to spend time together as a church family.
