I'm really sorry, but the pool has just called me (14:30) and told me that their lifeguard has fallen over and broken her ankle. They've been unable to find a replacement lifeguard.Unfortunately they won't accept one of our lifeguards - only their own vetted employees - and so I have to cancel tonight's session.I'm really sorry about that - please book on the next available slot, and I look forward to seeing you on the next one.
Matt C took some videos of our Saturday paddle on the Dee last week - enjoy!
For those that missed Jon representing MCC on our local radio station, here's the interview - worth listening to, you might have been mentioned! Interview Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
Good to see people at the work day today, making progress on the new building! Apologies to those I didn't get in the photo, you were probably moving too fast for me to catch you ;-)
Our very own Jon Lock will be on the radio representing Maidstone Canoe Club tomorrow afternoon (Friday 28th Jan) from 1:30pm - 2:00pm! He's on the Paul Edwards "Bit in the Middle" show - give it a listen, maybe even message in to the show and say hi! (If you ask nicely, Jon might even autograph your paddle)
Slightly unfortunate news: the new pool sessions are costing more than anticipated, because the pool has been billing us incorrectly. All future pool sessions will now be a bit more expensive - sorry! (Existing bookings - even for upcoming pool sessions - are unaffected). We'll keep looking for alternatives, but this is still the best option at the moment ...
A huge thanks to everyone who came to the pool session this evening, it was a lot of fun! It was really good to see everyone playing and training together, particularly in the warm, clean water! If you didn't make it tonight, keep your eyes peeled: we're hoping to start running these more regularly.
Wishing all Maidstone Canoe Club members a happy and healthy New Year! Hoping you make all your paddling-adventure dreams come true in 2022!
