Thames Trip - Spaces Left

There are still a couple of spaces left on Mike's trip down the Thames this July.  It's a lovely river, and the tripwill cover 60 miles of the upper section - but you can join in for a couple of days only if you'd prefer.  The campsites on this stretch are small and lovely, but tend to get booked up early - so let Mike know if you want to come!  Full details here.

2016 was a bad year for celebrities

It's Elton John's birthday tomorrow!  Assuming 2017 is a better year for celebrity survival than 2016, we'll be celebrating(*) at the pool session tomorrow - come and join us!

(*) celebrations will mostly involve the usual capsizes, braces and rolling practice.  But bring balloons if you want!

AGM Tonight ...

.. see you there!

Upcoming Local Trips

Just a quick one to point out that it's only a week (Sunday 26th March) until the paddle from The Strand to Strood with Meridian CC, and only a couple of weeks until the Mole trip (Sunday 2nd April).  These are both great one-day trips, and highly recommended.   Please let Geoff know if you're coming to either of them.

AGM Next Week

Eat the cake, drink the beer (tea also available), vote for the committee - you know the drill!  See you down there - please do get involved, this is YOUR Club!

Cake and kayaks - what's not to like?

Don't forget the paddle from Tonbridge on Sunday, organised by Lisa in aid of the Born Free Foundation.  Lisa and Michaela are supplying cakes (for sale / donation), so it's bound to be great!  Meet 9am at the Club for the car shuffle back to Yalding.

Help at the marathon

More helpers are needed for the Maidstone Marathon on April 30th.  Whatever your skills, we've got a role for you!  Please contact Bryn or Brian for more.

A Really Rubbish Paddle

Please come down and help at the Litter Pick this Sunday (12th March).  Litter pickers and bags proivided - please help the Club do our bit for the Great British Spring Clean, a national event coordinated in our little patch by the Medway Valley Countryside Partnership.  This is always a fun event, please come down and do your bit!
