East Barnby 2011 - Day Four

We have been so lucky with the weather - another rain free, get up and get going sort of day greets us. We wolf down a hearty breakfast in readinesss for the challlenge that lies ahead - canoeing.  Some of us feel a bit wobbly about this activity but there's nothing for it but to grab a paddle...

...and paddle like mad!
 

 

Chasing chickens in a canoe is an art form.

These people were very pleased to master canoeing and to reach dry land just a little bit soggy!

Before we knew it, it was time to pack up. Many of us look forward to the next time we can take to the water.  Canoeing is fun!

The afternoon was close to water rather than on it but we still had plenty of opportunity to paddle and splash in the pools at Runswick Bay.  We found surprising things to hold...

Boy, were we hungry and tired after all that!  But don't worry, Everyone, the minute we had showered and eaten chicken curry and rice, followed by chocolate cake and custard, several food supplements from the tuck shop and chilled out with a spot of diary writing, we were as good as new (well, almost!).  In no time at all, it was full on for the Highlight of the Evenings' Programmes, East Barnby 2011 Talent Show!

At considerable expense, our evening's entertainment was compered by the world famous (well, at least in Market Weighton) M.C. Clayton, who was recognised as the previous evening's notorious Time Meister Clay.
 

 

To warm the audience up, M.C. Clayton led group singing complete with pogoing and chicken walk.
 

 

Without further ado and a buzz in the air, we set off on a mysterious and wonderful journey of entertainment, everything from mouth sound boxing to the complete works of Lemony Snicket in 5 Acts.

We all had a brilliant evening, with a hand buffet, audience participation...

 

 

 

...and even awards, the Third Annual Eastie Awards.  One or two of the categories surprised Miss Brown a bit but all the winners seemed delighted with their achievements.
