Club Closed

In light of the latest advice from British Canoeing and the Environment Agency, we will have to abide by their guidance and cease all paddle sport activity until advised otherwise.
 
I would advise anybody thinking of ignoring this directive to reconsider as doing so would bring the club into disrepute.  I thank you for your cooperation in this matter.  Hopefully the current situation will pass sooner rather than later and we can all go back to enjoying our sport.  The most important thing is to stay safe and look after yourselves and your families and to keep up-to-date with current government advice.

Take care,
Brian Williams
Chairman

Sunday 22 December

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.

Festive cheer!

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. 

Summer Instructor Work

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!

"Hi there,

I am writing to let you know about Water Sports Instructor positions available on BUNAC's Summer Camp USA programme, which I think will be of interest to you and your club members. The programme is 8-10 weeks living and working at a Summer Camp in the US teaching children how to canoe and kayak.

Let me know if this would be of interest at all!

Thanks,
Ellie"

Did you know? Calendar

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.

Breakfast at the Malta

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. 

Winter (newsletter) has arrived

... and you can get it here!  Enjoy :-)

Paddling in 2020

Are you planning to paddle in 2020?  If you can spare a couple of minutes to answer a few questions about what you'd like to do, we'd really appreciate it!  Please don't forget - do it now!

Komdu í sundlaugina!

... as they like to say in Iceland.  In celebration of Icelandic Language Day, all conversation at the pool session tomorrow will be in Icelandic.  Enjoy!
