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
We have not got the van for the Saturday 13th January pool session, so if you can help take boats I would be grateful! Please let me know - thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesday 2nd Jan 2018 meet at club 9:00, further details on calendar.
Marsport are running a Marathon Racing Coaching Support Module at Wokingham Waterside Centre on Thursday 7th December. If you are interested you'll need to register with British Canoeing which costs £17:50. Course fee is £25. To get booked onto the course, call Marsport on 0118 966 5912. I'll be driving there if you need a lift. email email@example.com. Course begins at 09:30. Sorry it's late notice but it may just be worthwhile attending. Course is for coaches only :)
Unfortunately the pool session in December has been cancelled, due to scheduled maintenance taking place at the pool. January's session will go ahead as normal - please keep an eye on the website for dates.
A reminder of sunnier days in the Springtime! More photos of the sea kayaking trip to the Summer Isles this year - why not come along next year? Keep an eye on the calendar or speak to Geoff to make sure you don't miss it!
A good turn-out for the first of the midweek paddles, for those who are around during the day. Keep an eye on the calendar for the next one!

Many in the club cannot attend regularly on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings but do have time on weekdays due to being retired or shift work. Mike Lambourne would like to organise some midweek paddles for these members. The first paddle is planned for Monday 20th November, if interested please see details on the calendar.
