PRYC's 2022 Championship Presentations ceremony included a thong throwing challenge, a four entrant fisherman's hat competition (won by creative design - "Flathead" fish chapeau with needles to prevent birds roosting) and of all things - a  poetry recital !   The tasty generous Aussie Christmas  lunch included prawns, dessert and a bar tab.
