Final Cubs evening Kayaking session for 2011 - 20 September

Well, the nights are starting to draw in and it is definitely not as warm as it has been. I promised the cubs that we would try and go out once more this year and so on Tuesday 20 September we will have our last paddle. last time we ended up with far too many boats on the water, so we will probably split the group in two this time. We will also put the younger cubs in open canoes with an experienced adult. 

Can I have some volunteers to help out please? I especially need a few experienced adults to assist in taking the smaller ones along in open canoes. I aim to arm them with kayak paddles, so hopefully it will just be a matter of keeping some control and direction as well as limiting the splashing broadsides which always seem to occur when canoes are alongside each other :-)
Please let me know ASAP so that I have a rough idea of how much help we can expect. team Viking members coaching from the bank are, of course, also very welcome.
