I hope that you are enjoying the warmer weather and (slightly) warmer water temperatures to get out in your kayak. Here is a brief update on what is happening with the club.
Call for a Facebook Moderator
At our recent Committee meeting we discussed the need to improve our Facebook presence and make it easier for members to quickly post accounts of their club activities. We have decided to change our Facebook setup so that any member can post without the delay of waiting for moderator approval. Having said that, we still need a moderator to respond when inappropriate postings are made – which I expect to be quite seldom. Could this be you? This would be a great way to start to understand the detailed workings of the club – maybe a first step for a place on the Committee down the track? If you are interested please let me know by return email.
Come and Try Day a Success
On Sunday 3 November the club held a Come and Try Day for potential new members. The day was a great success thanks to fantastic planning by three committee members (especially Caoimhin Ardren, and also Mark Fuller and Beth Symonds) and further support on the day by Adrian Clayton, Campbell Tiley, Rhys Ward and John Friedman. A number of other members also loaned kayaks for use on the day. Sixteen people attended to give kayaking a try and one of them was so impressed she joined the Club the same day! Welcome Jean Watson. Thank you to all who contributed to make this day a success.
Don’t Forget to Renew Your Membership
Membership renewals are now open. We have not changed membership cost since last year so for just a few dollars you can join any number of club trips and training led by our experienced leaders and instructors, receive the outstanding Salt magazine to your door three or four times a year, register for Rock’n’Roll, boring stuff like insurance……the list just goes on. Please do this before the end of the year. It makes it easier for the committee and clears the decks before we get into final R’n’R preparation.
