HPP trip - Saturday 15th July to Sunday 16th July 2017

Several people have asked if the club could have a trip to the National White Water Centre at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, so here it is!
We will travel up on the Saturday morning, paddle the course, camp at the campsite on Saturday night and maybe have a barbecue or go to the pub, then paddle on the Sunday.
The course is mostly Grade 3 and, I think, just a little harder than the Legacy course, but more fun! There is an easier section around the back of the course, part way down, which is probably grade two. We are happy to take paddlers new to moving water on this section for a session in the morning and a session in the afternoon on each day. You would need to be confident in wearing a deck and capsizing. There is even a lake there, so there is something for everyone.
It appears to cost £10 for a whole day, maybe £7.50 for students, but I may be reading the wrong price - it seems very cheap compared with Lee Valley.
Richard will be taking his van so will be able to transport some kayaks. Bill and I will be taking our van, so will be able to take some people.
Please let me know if you are interested. I will check with the campsite as to whether we can book a group pitch or whether we book individually.
Any questions, just ask.
