The third annual Boat Ball was held on Saturday November 17th in the Burlington Hotel, Lesson St. The blacktie event is a significant fundraiser for both DUBC and DULBC, with all profits on tickets sold being split and ploughed back into the clubs. This year was the most financially successful Boat Ball for DUBC. The event was attended by over one hundred young Trinity rowers from the Novice, Intermediate and Senior crews and was organised by Ben Morgan and Grace Gannon. Club members were treated to a fine wine reception in the Burlington’s opulent Sussex room, followed by a delicious four course meal. Memorable captain’s speeches were given with live vocal entertainment being provided by the very popular ‘Trinitones’- who sang a number of popular classic and contemporary hits in their distinctive barbershop style. All at DUBC would like to thank the Trinitones for performing so well at this year’s BoatBall. After the live entertainment, the dancefloor opened up and club members danced the night away to the beat of the infamous DJ Alan. A late-night bar served to quench any thirst and club consensus is that this year’s Boatball was the best to date. Raffle prizes including a two night Bed and Breakfast stay at the Burlington and also a three course meal for two at the Clontarf Castle Hotel-were presented to the lucky ticket holders and a memorable night was had by all with vital funds being raised for the club in the process.
