Minutes of Forza’s 1st ever meeting – August 1991

Whilst cleaning up under the stairs I came across an Index book with pages glued into it. The attached is record of the inaugural meeting of Forza Italia Dragon Boat Club Inc. held in 1991. It was agreed at the meeting that the club should be formed by the members of the South West Italian Club. Some other interesting bits of information –
• Chubg Wah Association was a major player in organising the dragon boating Festival in Bunbury during the 90s.
• Forza’s first couple of seasons was as a “Corporate” team affiliated with Spirit of Bunbury Dragon Boat Club.
• In the early days there were many Bunbury based “Corporate” teams like Cable Sands, SCM Chemicals, Iluka Recourses, Worsley Alumina, Muja Power Station etc. who also competed at the various regattas.
• In the early days racing occurred about every second weekend with each club running two regattas on their local water ways.
• The Bunbury “Peters AquaSpectular” Festival of the early to mid-90s was so big that it had to be run over two days.
• In 1999 Forza members decided to remove the word “Italia” from our name in line with many other sporting clubs at that same time.
