Access to the Clubhouse

The re-programming of the juniors key fobs has been put on hold untill the committee has further discussed this issue. A meeting will be held on 13/12/2012 and any decision taken then wil be notified here.

Car Park Codes - Update

We discussed the issues with the car park barrier at the committee meeting last night. The barrier has really improved the parking situation, which is a good thing. The codes for the barrier are now posted:

  • inside the Clubhouse
  • inside the boat shed
  • here on the website (members only)
  • in the Fitness Club

There is also an intercom connected to the Fitness Club so you can be "buzzed out" if necessary.  We think this will be an adequate solution for the time being, but please contact the committee if you are having problems and we'll work to resolve them.

 

Car Park Barrier Codes!

There is now a barrier at the car park at the Club.  The barrier will open automatically, but you will require a code to exit!  The codes change every day, but will be posted inside the Club door.  The committee is meeting on Wednesday to discuss this ...

 

Coaching Development Group Meeting - Wednesday

Just a reminder about this week's CDG meeting, which should be of interest to all practising & aspiring coaches in the Club.  As always, please mail cdg@maidstonecanoeclub.net if there's anything you'd like to be discussed.

Bishop Stortford Essex Winter Series.

Today (Sunday 4th November) was the first Essex Winter Series race of the year held at Bishop Stortford Canoe Club. Maidstone racing team had 7 paddlers competing. Aaron Jordan, Dean Jordan, Leanne Brown, Aneta Drag, Duncan Moon, Tom Collins and Felix Collins. Apart from the weather being crappy and the river flowing the team had a very good day apart from Aneta and Duncan taking a swim. Big shout out to Felix Collins smashing the u12 race beating 2nd place by 5minutes!!! And a big thanks to Tom for stopping in his race to help Duncan great team work! The next race of the series will be held at Cambridge Canoe Club on Sunday 25th November.
