This is a reminder that the club's AGM is on Friday 9th March at 7:00pm. Nominations are still needed for committee members, for details please see the calendar. No problem nominating yourself if you would like to join us on the committee. The AGM is also a chance to raise items about the club that you would like to discuss but you will need to inform the email@example.com of this by 23rd February.
The next Coaching Matters will be taking place on Sunday 4th March at Maidstone Canoe Club and is a great opportunity for coaches in the region to meet together and update at the same time. Details from Russ Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org
This year, for the first time ever, the Maidstone Marathon will be one of the Team GB Selection races - the best paddlers in the country will be competing for a spot on Team GB! We need your help on 10th June to make this run smoothly - race marshalls, time keepers, help checking in, etc. Please contact Bryn Price if you're able to help the Club for this nationally-important event.
Join Lisa for a proper breakfast after the paddle this Sunday (14th Jan), all to raise money for the Born Free Foundation. Regular paddle as usual, and then upstairs for tea, bacon, and all the trimmings - enjoy!

Happy New Year everyone. The Christmas holidays are over and now is the perfect time to start planning where you are going to go kayaking this year. As Mark suggested in the Winter Newsletter; this year, why don’t you make it your New Year’s resolution to come on a kayaking trip? All the usual trips will be running, and you will be able to see them advertised on the club pages, but I am going to tell you about a couple of new trips for this year.
The first trip is the one you will have read about in the Winter Newsletter. Richard, Bill and I will be going to the Ardèche again.
The first part of the second trip is one that is new to all of us. A group of us are heading to Switzerland for the first week of the summer holidays, and then on to France for a two-week family kayaking holiday.
The second part of the second trip will be our usual family kayaking holiday.
I am only mentioning this trip as we still have one space left in the house in Slovenia – Friday 25th May to Sunday 3rd June. It's £250 for the accommodation and transport.
If you are interested in joining us for any of these trips, please just get in touch email@example.com
