Paddle Opportunities for New Members

We have had many new members joining the club since this lockdown started and they are most welcome. However, they join us at a difficult time because they cannot just turn up at the club on a Sunday morning or Wednesday evening to go for a paddle in club boats and get to know other members. So, a few of us have been arranging paddles with groups of new members so that they can get access to our boats (more experienced members would be welcome). I will put these paddle sessions on our calendar under ‘trips & tours’ so this filter can be used to see all planned paddles. If people want to join these paddles, maximum of 6 at present, please contact the host. There is also a WhatsApp group MCC2020 where new members and existing members can put up messages that they are organising a paddle or would like to go on a paddle, the app is fine for initial planning but  the calendar will allow better control of numbers. Please contact me if you would like to join that group. Regarding keys for access to our boats, it would be irresponsible of the club to allow new members to have a key to the boat store until we know them and their abilities better. Particularly we do not want new members to invite their friends and family for a paddle in our club boats, it would be very irresponsible for the club to facilitate this. Sorry but for now you will need to be patient. Many thanks
