Container Work

Paul C is trying to arrange a working party to get some jobs done at the containers, and as such is looking for some help.

This is the list of jobs that need doing:
1 woodwork on the canoes needs sanding and varnishing
2 kayaks need sorting new footrest nuts and drain plugs and air bags (we have some parts)
3 at least one kayak has a broken skeg
4 some time we will have to do a check on the BAs

If you are willing to take on, or help with, one of these jobs please contact Paul C and he will sort some dates out.

First Aid Course

I am trying to organise a 1 day, Emergency First Aid at Work course, hopefully at PRSYC, the possible dates are Sun 3, Sun 10, Sat 23 or Sun 24 August. Ideally we need a minimum of 12 people (max 20) to make the course work so I am offering it to the club first. Please come back to me, via Facebook or Text to let me know which date you prefer by the end of the week, after which I will be offering it externally to make up the numbers.

In terms of cost I am trying to get to around £50 per person, and it is a certificated course. This course covers the pre requisites for UKCC Level 2 Coach as it is an 8 hour course. If there is enough people and enough interest I will put a second course on one of the other dates.

If you have any questions please let me know.

‘Rita, Sue and Simon Too’ Thursday 19th June, 2014

Simon Cosson, Sue Tadman and Rita O’Reilly paddled from Ham Bridge to Knightwick.

Our usual access was overgrown with stingers and other nasty plants so we slid the boats down a steep, newly-made access that, most likely, was used with higher river levels.  Using a throw rope around a tree, we lowered ourselves onto a gravelly bank.  … read more?
