NOTES….. Please read ……
A number of weekends have been left free to enable our Grade 4 -5 paddlers able to respond to water
levels and mount their own trip at trips at short notice. Please circulate trips amongst relevant paddlers.
All events, whether daytrips, weekends away or social events will generally only take place if they are
well supported, subject to having sufficient a available coaches / experienced paddlers to lead such trips
and to weather conditions and water levels being suitable.
We are a small Club with few coaches and as such we demand far too much of their time, accordingly
some of our day trips may be led by experienced paddlers without any coaches being in attendance.
Equally on other trips our more experienced paddlers will support the efforts of our coaching team.
On some trips, particularly the Whitewater trips our coaches will be acting beyond their coaching remit.
It’s YOUR CLUB AND THESE TRIPS ARE FOR YOU !! please support them !
