Huge congratulations to everyone who competed in today's Maidstone Marathon, and a particular thanks to all those Club members who gave up their time to help out.  Results will be announced shortly - in the meantime, some photos courtesy of Ian & Reece:

Open Afternoon Saturday 20th May from 1pm to 4pm

We are once again inviting everyone to come and join us on the river for an open afternoon on Saturday 20th May from 1pm to 4pm. There will be open canoes, kayaks, stand up paddleboards and racing boats to try,along with expert help and information on getting involved in these water sports.

There will be refreshments for sale on the day.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
We look forward to seeing you there with your friendsand family.

Club members, we would like as many of you as possible to help at this event. We will need people on the water, fitting boats and buoyancy aids, serving drinks and telling people what the club has to offer. If you are able to bake a cake to bring along, that would be awesome! It would be useful if you would let me know if you can help. Thank you.  

The Loneliness of the Long Distance Paddler

It's the marathon next week!  See above for entry forms; see Bryn or Brian if you can help out (all assistance appreciated); otherwise, see you there!  (No regular paddle on April 30th, obvs)

April is the cruelest month

"April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain."

Or so claimed T.S. Eliot in his poem "The Wasteland".  What a miserable old sod.  Cheer up, mate - it's the pool session tomorrow!
