Fundraiser for our Juniors going to Slovakia – THIS SAT 13th MAY

Alexandria Choate, Louis Richardson, Billie Knell and Kira Wall travel to the Canoe Slalom Junior Worlds Championships in Bratislava, Slovakia in July as members of the Australian Junior Team. We are holding a fundraising event this Saturday with BBQ food, silent auctions, raffle and live jazz/funk music from Bass Lemon 13th May 6:30 – 10:30 pm at the clubrooms. All profits will go towards helping our four Swan paddlers’ travels.

Please book and/or make a donation at this site. Remember if you can’t make the event, but would like to donate towards their travel expenses, you can use the link in the last sentence. Personal costs to represent Australia at Junior Worlds is $5000 plus for each athlete. Any financial help would be greatly appreciated.

Club Boat Use – each use must be recorded

We notice that many members who paddle Club boats are forgetting to record each use in the log book in the foyer.  Please remember this important Club rule.  It also helps us determine the popular boats in our fleet and thus influence future boat purchases.

Junk in Boatshed

While cleaning out the boatshed under some member boats we found two clear plastic storage containers with items like an anchor, clothing, flippers.  If this is not claimed soon it will go in the bin.
