The fire extinguisher was first patented on this day in 1722 by a man revelling in the unlikely name of French C. Hopffer. Still, you should be safe at the pool session tomorrow.
Did you know? Minutes of all the committee and Coach Development Group meetings are on the website. Keep up to date with the decisions being made and make your voice heard.
If you're not going on one of the trips tomorrow (22nd Sept) and are planning on paddling from the Club, be aware there is a rowing race. We will be meeting at the Club as usual and ferrying up to Yalding for a paddle on a quieter stretch. If you have roof bars, straps or vans, please bring them along!
If anyone has found a black fitbit outside the Club - probably on the grass - can they please drop me a line so it can be re-united with it's owner? Thanks!
The first in a series of "Did you know" items, sharing some lesser-known facts about the Club and website. Look out for more over the next few months.
Did you know we've got two Facebook pages? The main Club Facebook page keeps you up to date with what's going on at the Club - new events, upcoming trips, news - and the Maidstone Paddlers Group is for general chat and last-minute paddles. Follow them both!
We had an excellent couple of day coaching and paddling in Wales at the Intro to Whitewater Weekend, with everyone growing in skills and confidence on the beautiful rivers Dee and Tryweryn. Plus the weather was lovely!
Peace returned to Maidstone this week, at least between 9am & 3pm while the kids were (finally!) back at school! Unless you're a teacher, of course. Still, Christmas is coming soon! Come and tell us about your school holidays at the pool session tomorrow (500 words or less).
Pool sessions Saturday 7th September if you are able to help take boats that would be very much appreciated thanks
