POOL SESSION AT THE QUARRY POOL
Winter 2022/23 pool sessions - come and book onto a series of pool sessions to hone and refine your paddle skills in a safe, warm environment. Master your paddle technique, your bracing, or get that roll completely solid.
Club coaches will be on hand to support and assist. These sessions are especially good for paddlers starting out on their paddling careers, or for those wishing to master a specific skill set. They are less suited to experienced paddlers (you may be interested in the polo sessions instead when they start...).
NEW FOR 2022/23 - Pool sessions are in blocks of 4 and for one hour slots. Please arrive at the pool at least 15 minutes early to get ready.
We have boats at the pool for use. The session is not suitable for SUPs. You can bring your own boat but it must be spotless clean inside and out, and will be inspected by a coach prior to put in. If not clean enough we will need to ask you to use a club boat.
A maximum of 2 sea boats can be used on the pool, and only on the 8pm session. You would need to bring your own. Please contact Grant on firstname.lastname@example.org if you intend on using a Sea Boat to check there is space to do so.
Please bring swim wear, and we strongly recommend goggles and nose clips.
The price for the four week block is £40 - this is non-refundable unless the Club needs to cancel a session for any reason. If you can't make a session then you are welcome to make this known through the Facebook site where often other members will take you up on the offer. You'll need to make payment arrangements with the other party directly in this circumstance independently.
We note the price per session has gone up a little this year - this is due to increased hire charges at the pool, and increasing equipment replacement and repair costs that the Club is covering.
If for any reason you can't make a block having booked it, please let us know and we will try and sell the block to another member - if successful we will refund your booking.
Any queries please contact email@example.com
If you have any questions regarding your suitability for the trip please send an email to either of us but we will look to paddle no grading higher than a 3.
Club kit will be available if required, and we will arrange opening the containers for you - you will be responsible for taking the kit and returning it. Please book out the kit, and pay the hire via the website and arrange access to the container with Nick or Grant.
Kit required will be boat with airbags, paddle, helmet, BA, Deck change of clothes, lunch and drinks, and clothing / wetsuit / dry suit suited to the weather.
See you all on the water.

Simon Pond is running a WW kayak trip on Sunday 9th October. Venue to be decided.
As normal Simon prefers natural rivers, but if no water, will then go to a Dam fed river.
If nothing running I will go to Cardiff for their WW course.
Currently I have only got 12 people booked on the weekend. The bunkhouse is booked and the event will be going ahead. So I currently run the risk of costing the club some money. So. On 1st September I will be opening the trip up to neighbouring canoe clubs. So if you want to come along, please book your slot.
Simon Pond will be running another trip to the River Dart for 2022. This year, I may even put an appearance in.
I must stress, when booking, payment will be expected, this will be non returnable, but you have the right to sell your spot to another member.
General plan will be as other years.
I will be travelling south Friday morning, to hopefully run the upper Dart. This will be a peer paddle, it's grade 4. If not running, surfing an option at Croyde Bay, again a peer paddle.
Saturday and Sunday I'll put club leaders cap on and lead down the loop and down to Buckfastleigh. Grade 3, but with large stretches of flat water, after every event, to re unite paddlers with boats etc!!
Would like those attending to of done MEM a few times. You've got all the summer of 2022 to sort that.
Saturday evening, I'll book us into the Prince of Wales in Princetown for evening meal. I'll do a recon of the joint on Friday evening. The things I do for you!!
We will be staying in Powdermills Bunkhouse. Either in the bunkhouse or in vans etc on car park. If you are vaning there will be charges, but will have access to bunkhouse, showers, loos, kitchen, drying room and the two breakfasts.
Price will include either bunk in bunk house, or access to bunkhouse, breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning.
Cost £38 per person for bunk in bunkhouse.
£28 per person on the car park.
Holne Bridge to Buckfastleigh
Prince of Wale
Alex Ziegler, supported by Grant McKelvie and Shaun Baker and other leaders, is organising a PEER PADDLE on the Dee on 12 November. The focus of this trip will be practicing and getting experience of rescue techniques that many of our members have gained through recent rescue training.
Suitable for those comfortable on grade 2/3 water, the trip will paddle up the canal for a run down from Horseshoe Weir, with most of the trip spent at or below Serpents Tail practicing swimmer/equipment rescue, rope work, defensive swimming, etc.
As a peer paddle, this is not a coached session or a training course as such, but Shaun Baker, recently retired swift water rescue guru , will be on hand to guide on best practice. It serves to be an excellent day on the water. It will be a great opportunity to work with peer paddlers on practicing techniques.
This will be a peer paddle with each paddler responsible for their own decision making on the water. As such numbers are not limited. If you are not sure if this is an event for you please get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org
Kit required will be boat with airbags (ESSENTIAL!), paddle, helmet, deck, BA. Personal worn kit should be suitable for swimming in the Dee in November - thick wet suit or dry suit recommended. Warm changes of clothes and lunch / snacks / hot drinks also required.
If you require Club kit please book it out and pay via the website and let Grant know so you can arrange container access.
Note that MEM require their £7.50 per person to park and use their facilities; please drop into TNR on site to register and pay.
Any questions please give Alex or Grant a shout.
Simon Pond will be running a grade 3/4 WW trip.
Will be in Mid or North Wales. As normal I will go to a natural river first, then a dam fed one, finally the Dee. I won’t consider Cardiff.
An all day trip, so bring food and drink. Also any WW rescue kit that you have.
Limiting trip to me plus 6. This may grow if another leader puts their hand up.
