Old St.Nick and his helpers will be making their annual visit to Elwood Sailing Club on Saturday 14th December, so be there with your kids, grandkids and their friends to welcome Santa Clause back to ESC.  The party will kick off after sailing around 5pm with some kids games and party food before Santa’s arrival and followed by a BBQ, and the good news for all you scrooges out there is that it’s free again this year!

Parents & guardians, please remember to bring a small labelled gift for each child attending as our Santa will have been out sailing all afternoon and will not have time to shop beforehand…
