I've received several emails since the slalom weekend from competitors who have said what an enjoyable and friendly slalom it was. They also said what a lovely stretch of river it was and an excellent site for slaloms. A big thank you from me to all Club members for their efforts and hard work to make the event a success. - Hugh.

If so the club can make funding available to support your training to become a coach or leader. Speak to Ian Holmes or any committee member
