Notice of Event and Carryings On for the Inaugural Ian Perc Perdriau Annual Wake & Reunion of The Bastards Sportsmans’ Challenge & Piss Up

17th September 2011
SFS Boatshed 76 McDougal St Milsons Point – 1145hrs.   
1. Reason for the Event
With the recent extremely sad passing on of one of our best, Perc Perdriau, it was deemed important to strike a date at the SFS (House of Schooners) for all Bastards of sailing to regroup, drink beer, and tell as many lies as possible about Perc. It was also deemed important from this day forward, for all the remaining alive Bastards to regroup at the SFS annually in September to catch up, and have a good laugh at the good times we shared together racing skiffs AND not wait until another Bastard drops off to catch up with each other……Perc has given us the opportunity and Perc will have the naming rights in perpetuity for what will be an annual wake and reunion of the Bastards Sportsmans’ Challenge and piss up   
2. Rules
Normal rules of drinking beer apply and keep the swearing down please

3. Perpetual Trophy
A splendid trophy will be presented to the winning team of Bastards for engraving and the winning Bastards (the ones still alive) will present the Perc Perdriau Trophy to the following years victorious Bastards….. like the Green Jacket protocol at the Augusta US Masters.  

4. Events to be contested

5. Pre Start and Schedule on the day
