CLUB NIGHTS WILL RECOMMENCE ON WEDNESDAY 12TH APRIL.
There will be a slight change in the format to sessions. Paddling activities will be broken down into smaller groups. This will allow some to practice skills, others to paddle at a speed and distance that reflects their ability and fitness.
Generally, sessions will be on the water for 6.30pm. However, particularly in the lighter nights provision will be made for an earlier start for those at work.
It is hoped that more use will be made of the clubroom and the bar, offering the opportunity to get together before or after the sessions.
With this in mind, the SUP group will now also meet on Wednesdays. extra midweek evening paddles and more
Hopefully, with increased size of the leadership group and those undergoing training there may be more opportunities for ad hoc extra midweek evening paddles and more and varied weekend paddles. But please rememeber they are all volunteers with other commitments.
Once the season gets under way we will be organising the occasional get together on Friday evenings, ‘Family Fridays’. Members will be encouraged to bring their family and friends to the club to socialise and if they wish get on the water. Food may be available or you would be welcome to bring a picnic or use the BBQ. Camping will also be available.
Finally, thank you all for your Club Survey responses. the response level was excellent and very positive. We will try to increase and vary the activities, but we do understand as suspected, family and work commitments often limit paddling opportunities for many of you. However, it would be great to increase participation levels this year, so please come and join in.
We will see some you on the Dudley Tunnels Trip this weekend. For the rest we’ll hopefully see you on the water soon.
