Saturday 17th – Canoe while learning some history ! – Revised Times

There is a canoe trip on the Teme and the Severn on Saturday. Its a gentle paddle and an opportunity to develop skills, with a bit of history thrown in for good measure.
We will start with a bit of history – outside the Kings Head at Upton on Severn – at 1pm (not the programme time which says 10am)
Then we will drive to Powick, aiming to be there about 1:45pm.
If you are interested please let me know by e-mailing or texting 07909537760

Note only 2 club boats left.

Please let me know:
– do you need a club canoe (if you do you will need to meet at PRSC at 12:00)?
– will you meet at Upton or at Powick?

13 for Nafford – Sunday 27th May

Thirteen of us descended on Nafford weir this morning which turned out to be a great sun trap of surfing, playing and a little bit of swimming.
Today’s trip was initially planned for Cardiff, but thursday’s session at Nafford proved popular enough to rethink sitting in hot cars for a few hours to drive to the white water centre, and a 10 o’clock start seemed a far more social time to meet and paddle too.

1st Worcester Scouts – Top Barn – Saturday 28th April 2012

Today we ran two kayak and two canoe sessions at Top Barn near Holt Heath for 1st Worcester Scouts.
It turned out to be a very successful day and everyone enjoyed themselves despite the windy conditions.
As is typical with a scout group things started out not quite according to plan. We ended up being 3 to 4 coaches/assistants down on the day, the water based scout assistance never appeared, we ended up with nearly 40 scouts instead of the low 30’s we were expecting and the kit had not been arranged properly by the scouts to cover the numbers.
This is where our club do well all pulling together. With some good team work a new plan was hatched with the people we had. This plan relied on juniors Tom, Rachel, Harry and Olliver being a key part. All the coaches were extremely impressed with how mature and helpful they were throughout the day and we could not have done it without you :-D
Adult coaches and assistants were Adam, John G, Graham, Caroline, Ed, Paul C, Matt, Simon and providing vital bank support Rita.
We had a good debrief afterwards to map out everything we learnt so we can pass this on to other groups.
Well done to all.

thanks
Graham

Wychavon Kayak and Canoe Club (WKCC) held their 2nd annual Canoe Polo tournament at Droitwich Leisure Centre on Saturday, 10th March with 9 teams competing on the night.

Teams of 13-16 year olds from Festival Housing, Droitwich Young Firefighters (2 teams) and WKCC (2 teams) competed in this year’s Junior category. Although their paddling ability varied greatly,with some being only occasional paddlers,  everyone thoroughly enjoyed the chance of playing against all the other teams and the atmosphere was definitely competitive with some closely fought games.
