Xmas Paddle 2009

We had a very pleasant paddle this morning on the Avon. There was Caroline, Tony, Clive, Lyndon, Caryl and me.   
We were all ready on time and left PRSC at 9:30 and headed to Fladbury as planned only to be met with a really impressive water level downstream of the weir (see pics).  The usual part of the weir which is usually a scrape to go down had a deep stopper running full length so we all shot it on the right which had a nice wave train running through the middle. This was Lyndon and Caryls first river trip so they were already off to a challenging start.

Where did the water come from?

Well today’s trip to Symonds Yat was a washout as you can see from the photos. So instead I did something which I have never done before and went up the hill to Yat Rock and had a look around there. You get amazing views and can really see how the river meanders. I took these pics from high up looking down on the rapids which didn’t even have a wave on them. 
If anyone is doing any paddling over the coming week then let us know and we will spread the word.

Xmas Party – Great Success!

Thanks to everyone that attended the Xmas party; I think everyone would agree it was greatly enjoyed, adult and child alike.  Especial thanks to Wendy, Rita and Paul for running the Casino, and for Tina in providing the toys and adjudicating the winners.  And well done to everyone who got a prize or an award.    Happy Xmas from Caroline

Final Chance to Book for the Xmas Do

Please can we have your numbers and money for the Xmas Do (12th December).  Ideally if you’re at the pool on Thursday you can give me your money then; otherwise at the very least let me know you’re coming (by phone or txt – 07909 537760) and I can make sure there’s enough food!
