This seasons sessions will be following our new pool session format of a ‘coached’ hour from 19:30 and and an ‘open’ hour from 20:30.
Now the important bit; the coached session are open to all members and not limited to juniors. The flip side of this is that the open session is also open to everyone and not limited to seniors. The only thing we ask is that if you turn up to the coached session, you should then give precedence to those who have turned up for just the open session. We will see how this works out over the next few weeks and may refine the arrangements over the next few weeks.
Matt and I will putting together a schedule in the next week or so and will be publishing what the coached session is on a weekly basis. We also have a number of Monday night session that will be used for specific session (coach training, polo, etc). Following the next come and try it in October we may also be running some new members session but a decision on this will be made later in the year.
I hope this all makes sense but don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any comments, questions or suggestions.

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:

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.
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.
