First 2009 Programme and Sunday Paddle

Hope you had a good Christmas. The new first quarter programme for 2009 is now available on the programme page.

In addition we are planning to go to Symonds Yat this coming Sunday 4th January. The BCU improvement work is now complete. It’s a great place to improve your paddling. We will meet in the car park by the river at Symonds Yat East. At 9:30 a.m. Don’t forget your money for car parking and canoe launch. It was £3 per car all day and £1 per boat. You will need to arrange to bring your own gear. You need to be on the east side which is the side of the Saracens Head or Royal Hotel.
Note this is not a trip more of a park and play on the river and short rapid section. Contact Graham or Clive for more information. If you need any kit you must arrange to collect it yourself from Pershore but must contact Clive to make arrangements by Friday 2nd January. His number is on the programme.

Introduction to Kayaking Course

The club will be running two introduction courses during Spring 2009.  The courses are intended to provide a friendly and safe introduction to the sport.  The junior course (under 14) is based on the British Canoe Union (BCU) Paddle Power Scheme with the senior course covering the BCU One and Two star.

We need to finalise booking by 31 December but places are on a first come first served basis.  These places tend to go quickly as we limit the course to ten participants to ensure the best possible coaching.  We ideally need payment in advance to secure the place.

If you wish to sign up for a course please complete the Enrolement Form and return it to the Club secretary

Sunday 07 Dec

We have Nafford on the programme for Sunday 07 Dec but it may be too high.  Meet at the containers at 09:30 (i.e. with those who need club kit) and we will make a decision on Nafford or a paddle up to Wyre.
