The countdown begins
With only nine days to go until the adventure begins here is an update on what is happening.
On Saturday One Man Many Paths and FIG held a Beach BBQ at Güven’s Restaurant in Çalış to raise awareness of the kayaking event and raise money for FIG.
It was a beautiful relaxing summer afternoon with a cooling sea breeze blowing from the sea. There was entertainment for the children provided by Kate and Sharon from the Çalis Kids Club. The children (and some of the adults) had a fabulous time up to their elbows in paint whilst making a One Man Many Paths batik to present to Sam.
This was followed by delicious BBQ and meze buffet served just in time for sunset dining
There was a treat in store for the evening entertainment which was provided by Casper Fire Show
A very big thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event
Special thanks go to the following people
Carole and Güven Şahin from Güven’s Retaurant for providing such a relaxed venue and delicious buffet
Kate Topcu and Sharon Baltaci from Çaliş Kids Club for taking the time to come along and provide entertainment for the children
Casper Fire Show (Grace-Louise and Mehmet Turan) for coming along at very short notice and performing their amazing fire show
