Just a reminder to please put the Club weight-training equipment back in it's proper place. The equipment is being dismantled and not returned - this means it is not ready for others to use. Please respect the kit that is there for all of us to use.
Some equipment also appears to have gone missing - if you know where it is, please put it back!
Take a look at the new videos from Geoff, Paul T & Zac - all on the video page. Have you subscribed to our Youtube Channel yet?
Bewl Canoe Club are running a heavily-subsidised Level 1 Coaching course in March / April 2013, dates to be confirmed. The cost for this course will be £150.
If you would like to become a Level 1 Coach, please contact Paul Newman, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Bill (email@example.com) as soon as possible. We will be running courses to gain the pre-requisites for Level 1 depending on demand - this includes the FSRT course on the 28th October.
There are still a few spaces on the 3* training & assessment course next weekend (20th October) - contact Bill (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Niki, (email@example.com) for details and see the main calendar entry.
From Chris Edge, our PDO:
"Last Tuesday night Hunston CC, based in Chichester, had break in and a lot of their club's equipment was stolen:
PLEASE CAN YOU ALL BE ON HIGH ALERT IF YOU ARE APPROACHED TO PURCHASE ANYTHING OF SIMILARITY AND CONTACT THE POLICE IMMEDIETELY."
These locks will be closed from 19-30th November for essential maintenance. This won't affect canoes & kayaks particularly, but be aware that the portages are likely to be diverted / longer during this time.
It is proposed that Maidstone Canoe Club hold a Coaching Symposium for both budding and qualified coaches.
Presentations will be both theoretical and practical. Any suggestions for inclusions will be gratefully received for consideration. If anyone would like to present or deliver a coaching session, that would also be acceptable. Subjects might include coaching techniques, forward paddling, open, racing, or kayak, freestyle etc.
It is suggested that the symposium be held during a weekend day in January: 5th or 6th, 12th or 13th, 19th or 20th, 26th or 27th. Please forward your date preference, and suggestions to Bill Norman, Chair of Coaching Development at firstname.lastname@example.org
The symposium will be offered to other clubs so that ideas and skills can be shared across a wider community of boaters.
