Hi All

I have updated the calendar with the details of the various water sports evening we are offering for Cubs and Scouts (No beavers yet, but I hope we could take them for a paddle too). Please take a look and see when you are available to assist. These are a good opportunity not only to help out, but also to practise and gain confidence on the water. Dave will also be offering other sessions just for TeamViking and Adults where we can do some more intensive training with the aim of getting our Scout Association kayak and canoeing permits as well as some BCU qualifications.

We will not only be running evenings for our own group, but we also run evenings for other groups. the other groups pay for this and the money goes towards updating and repairing our equipment, so I will also add these dates to the calendar when I receive them, and we would like help then too.

We have a good group of Adults helping with Kayaks now, bit we woudl also like some Adults to help with sailing, Rowing (big boats rather that the small sculls) and rafting (barrels, poles and rope ... not white water).

Once again we are keen for adults to get permits so that we can have a pool of people able to lead these activities and help our current permit holders. If you, or anyone else in the group, is willing to help on any of these activities, or even if you would like some more info about them, then please drop me an email.

Thanks and see you on the water !
