The come and try it night is a FREE session in the Clickimin pool designed to allow people with an interest in canoeing and sea kayaking to have a go.
Open to adults and children over 12 years of age. Enthusiastic club members are at hand to encourage and assist all.
If this is your thing, you can then enrol for the Beginners Sessions. The first of 4 sessions starts on the 15th April 2010with a dry session from 6.45pm – 8pm followed by a pool session 8pm – 9pm with informal tuition from club members.
At the AGM it was decided that we would do our main Voar Redd Up event at Papa. (not Papa Stour or Papa Little) . This requires the club to go by Kayak and our support crew will be Ian in his boat , and maybe others who knows, who has kindly offered to take the bags back to Scalloway marina for the Amenity trust to collect. We will also be tidying up the marina as usual as it is our home patch.
If anyone is interested and would like to book a club kayak for the event then let me know as numbers will be limited.
For those who have their own kayak let me know if you are coming as the start point will be decided on nearer the time and we would not want to leave you behind.
All this is subject to the weather and no one has control over that. Not even me. Or Beth.
So fingers crossed for a good day.
Check the link – Ordnance Survey maps – and test your knowledge to see if you can find it. It will be good practice for you when you are deciding which trip to host this year. If you need a grid reference please ask. We have been there several times on Tuesday night trips in the past. Do not cheat and ask Beth & Ian.
The new club website was launched at a regular committee meeting on 8th March 2010. The content will now be brought fully up to date and club members will be informed about it and hopefully before long we’ll have some reports from trips and training sessions to add to it. More news on this years beginners training will follow soon. Any member with photos they’d like to add to the gallery can do so through the site, just use the contact form.
The club will be holding it’s AGM at the Isleburgh Centre on the 25th March at 7.00 p.m. Room 10. All welcome, even if you are not currently a member but may be thinking of joining, please come along.
