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

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!

... and speaking of newsletters

... it's nearly time for the Winter Newsletter!   Which means you, dear reader, have your quarterly opportunity for fame, fortune and the adulation of your peers.  Tell us about your paddling adventures - or gear, or races, or poetry, or anything else you think we'd be interested in.  The newsletter will be a barren thing if you don't!  Deadline is November 25th - articles to me, please - and don't forget the photos!

New Clubhouse Door

A new front door was fitted to the clubhouse today, many thanks to Richard and Roy for getting it done, so your old keys are now of no use. I will be at the club on Wednesday evening (13th) and on Sunday morning (17th) to issue a new key to any club member who wants one, there is a cost of £4. There are keys for this door in the main and racing boat stores, if you use one of these please remember to put it back.  Thanks

We are on fire!

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? Meetings

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.

Regular Paddle - Yalding

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!
