Participants group set up for 2014 Symposium on Facebook plus new car share page

We’ve just added a facebook group for participants in this year’s symposium. Check it out for details of informal paddles in the run up to the symposium and for the week between the Symposium and Voxter. Any formal trips will of course be mentioned here as well! There’s also a new car share page for participants coming from south.

Committee Meeting Islesburgh 7pm Friday 28th Feb

First committee meeting for 2014. If you’re interested in shaping what’s going to happen throughout this year, let one of the committee know and turn up to discuss.

2014 Symposium – additional information added to booking form pages and a heads up!

We’ve just added some bits to the page, just to clarify a few points we’ve been asked about. If you’re thinking of coming there’s still plenty of spaces just don’t leave it too long.

The heads up – we’re tidying up the programme and it’ll be out soon. All you 1* to 3* paddlers out there are going to be well catered for, it’s a great opportunity to develop your skills and just as importantly have fun. There’s also going to be opportunities for training here after the symposium  as a number of contributors are staying up for a paddle, check out the club forum for further details and make sure you ask if you’re wanting something!

2014 AGM Outcomes

That’s the AGM come and gone, not a huge turnout but there was some good discussion and pointers for the new committee to take forward for the next twelve months. Full details of the discussion available shortly, there’s a number of things we’re going to be consulting on. Some changes to post holders with Craig Lobban taking up the Secretary post and the two new faces on the committee are  Rachel Shucksmith joining the committee in the Trips Coordinator post plus Yolanda Bruce joins as an “ordinary ” member. Chris Watt is back as Vice Chair, Sheryl Lobban as Treasurer, Angus Nicol as Training Coordinator, Jim Tait as an “ordinary” member. Tam Hilditch has agreed to continue with equipment until he heads off in late spring for an extended holiday, and the non-committee post of Child Protection Coordinator was confirmed as being Julie Phillips again.

Would just like to repeat thanks to Jonathan Swale, Arthur Robertson and Ruby Price who all stood down this year.
