Then please sign British Canoeing's Clear Access Clear Waters petition and help give canoeists and kayakers the same rights that walkers and climbers have enjoyed for years. It will, literally, take two minutes and by signing you're increasing the chances that our voices will be heard.

Canterbury Stour Trip This Sunday Meet at club at 8:30, Leave by 9 Whitehall Close At 9:45 Helmets and Safety Gear Required
This Sunday (22nd December) we'll be running from Teston down to the Club. There's lots of flow so should be a fun trip! Meet at 9:30am.
There will be no regular paddle this Sunday.
Why not decorate your kayak for the pool session tomorrow? Baubles would be nice. I’d steer clear of the Christmas lights, though - the extension cable always gets tangled up with the paddle.
We had an email from BUNAC looking for watersports instructors for 8-10 weeks in the USA next year. Please drop Ellie an email if it's something you fancy!

Did you know? Anyone can add events to the calendar - even you! If you fancy a paddle, put it in the calendar and take some fellow MCC members with you! Instructions here.
Tim has had great difficulty this year booking our breakfast for 15th December but after many calls they did respond to say we could have a slot at 8am, probably want us gone before the rush. If you still want to go at this earlier hour Tim suggest we just go down in groups leaving in time to get there by 8 and not bother booking.
