Some Good News

After the second-to-last of the Winter Series marathon races we are doing well as a club.  
At Leighton Buzzard Mick & Brian came 3rd overall and 2nd in the Super Vets (both over 50).  Bryn & Paul Curtis came 4th overall and 2nd in the Vets.  Chris and Steve came 8th overall and were the 3rd Vet team home out of 16 K2s
In the series overall, with only Lee Marathon to go, Mick and Brian should finish as the 1st SuperVet team and probably 3rd or 2nd overall.  Bryn and Paul are lying 5th overall and 2nd in the Vets.
We are really getting back into being a great race team, with a possible 4 K2s racing next week 

Marathon - Help Needed

This year, for the first time ever, the Maidstone Marathon will be one of the Team GB Selection races - the best paddlers in the country will be competing for a spot on Team GB!  We need your help on 10th June to make this run smoothly - race marshalls, time keepers, help checking in, etc.  Please contact Bryn Price if you're able to help the Club for this nationally-important event.

Bacon & Boats - Cooked Breakfast at the Clubhouse!

Join Lisa for a proper breakfast after the paddle this Sunday (14th Jan), all to raise money for the Born Free Foundation.  Regular paddle as usual, and then upstairs for tea, bacon, and all the trimmings - enjoy!
