Our Symposium – 3 weeks to go!!!

Three weeks to go until the symposium, places are still available and we also have a day rate in case you can’t make the whole weekend.

There’s a number of delegates arriving on the Thursday before the symposium and we’re hoping they’ll join us for the club training session, so you may even have the chance to paddle with these great coaches, pick up a few hints and tips before the weekend!

If you can’t make it to the paddling through the day we’d still like to see club members out for the Saturday evening slide shows. Please speak to Chris, Wendy or Iain if you’re interested.

We’d also like to gauge interest in Junior paddlers having their own sessions over the weekend, again speak to Chris, Wendy or Iain, or email
