River Rescue Symposium

A river rescue symposium is being held on 14-15 March in Llangollen. It’s a well organised event run over 2 days with both theory and practical workshops. It normally gets booked quite quickly. There is a lot of information on the site but if you want to know a bit more then contact Paul Haggett our paddle development officer as I believe he has attended in the past.

Note this is a few weeks before some of us are attending a whitewater safety and rescue course. 



The remaining two Midland Region Polo tournaments we are entered in are on SAT 17 JAN and SAT 04 APR at Stratford pool.

If you have played before or fancy a go please contact the Secretary for more details.  Spectators are always welcomed which gives you a chance to see the game in action before giving it a go.

We are also looking at setting up some friendly junior matches with Evesham Paddlesport.  Contact the Secretary if you are intersted in these.
