Open Day help!

Following the great success of the Maidstone Marathon we need our members help again for the club open day this Saturday 21st May. If you can help, on and off the water, please let us know. As well as instructors we will need help booking people in and getting them ready for the water. There will be the usual barbecue, so plenty to do. Drop me an email or let us know via our WhatsApp groups.

Club help

Work is starting on our exciting new building!   If you can wield a spade or a paintbrush - or even just a kettle! - then please come down tomorrow, Saturday 14th May and help your Club!

Course spaces

We've still got spaces on some of our beginner courses for this year, including a last-minute space for this weekend and our amazing Kids Only Beginner Course in July!

First Course!

Huge congratulations to our first beginner course graduates of 2022!  We look forward to seeing you at Maidsone Canoe Club in the future :-)

Course feedback

I was looking through the feedback from our beginner courses held over the last few years, and I wanted to share some of it with you.  The top three responses to the question "What did you enjoy most about the course?" were

  1. The patience of the coaches
  2. How friendly everyone was at the Club
  3. The enthusiasm from everyone on the water

Well done everyone - give yourself a pat on the back this Monday afternoon!

Pls don't touch other people's privates!

A gentle reminder that only boats with Club boat stickers on, or with a number sprayed on, should be used from the boat store.  Any other boats - particularly those with PRIVATE BOAT stickers on - are in fact private and shouldn't be used.  If PAAs, coaches, trip leaders & others could keep an eye on what boats less-experienced members are taking out it would be really appreciated!

Maidstone Hasler Marathon

The Maidstone Marathon will be held this year on May 15th. Details and entry forms are on the attached flyer. 

More pool fun!

Lots of fun at the pool session on Tuesday - capsizes, braces, and general shenanigans!  The next one is on April 26th - see you there!
