Message from the Chairman
Welcome to the spring edition of the chairman's message. Hope you all had a super Xmas and New Year. And the weather will soon be warming up for those evening paddles and longer days.
The club this winter has had some varied trips Barle, Dart, Dee and Tees since writing this and all trips have been well supported and there is more coming up so keep an eye on the website calendar page.
The Dart saw 2 members enjoying champagne by the riverside and the Barle trip saw Stunt Boating exploits down a steep bank as well as some disco dancing. It's not all about the paddling as someone's said before.
We are looking to include some more resent photos on the website so please if you have any email them in, but keep an eye out on the photo page for yourself.
Things coming up:
- Devon surfing trip
- Summer trip (possibly Slovenia)
- Evening paddles throughout June, July and August
- Canoe Club AGM with quiz
- Battlesbridge Race confirmed 4th August
- Wye valley trip
- And I am sure there will be others trips and social events
My Thanks goes to Andrew Rawlinson on the work that goes in to the website so thank you. Also to those heroes who take the time and effort to run trips for us all to have fun and games, as without these people we would not get the fun we have so Thank You.
The pool sessions at Clements Hall seem to be well attended and the coaching side of this works well. We have extended the pool session to after Easter so please don't forget us.
On the 10th July evening paddle we are going to have a barbecue at the evening paddle so if you wish to cook something bring it along we will provided the barbecue equipment but not the food. All welcome even non paddlers.
Hope to see you out on the river or sea soon.
