Wasupppp Gangsters. Now listen carefully, some pretty epic stuff for y'all to sign up to:
afternoon training session.
2nd of May.
Probably to Grandtully but maybe to the Ericht or the North Esk depending on
interest and water levels. Meet Jon H at the pub or email me to sign up (jrh8)!
our social rep:
Pot-luck dinner and pre-game for people with aqua ball dance
tickets. Location to be confirmed. Contact Tim (trc3) if keen.
is an outdoor instructor working for Dumfries &
Galloway Council Outdoor activities service working towards his level 5 coach
award and is looking for willing and able bodies to practice coaching
on. He'd happily give us some coaching on the 23rd-24th of May. He is looking
for six people who are confidently paddling grade three and above for two days
of coaching. Location unknown as of now but people interested should contact
Jean (js226) ASAP.
There is an
opportunity for a one off volunteering afternoon with a group of mixed 13-16yr
old teenagers through the charity Families First. The charity aims to provide practical help and support to families
experiencing difficulties or coping with additional stress, with the likes of
team building activities like kayaking - if you want more information
about the charity check out their website, http://www.digitalfife.com/index.asp?MainID=4884.
The hope is to organise a session at east sands around the last week of May
(last week of exams, before the Summer trip). For this to run I would need at
least 2 coaches willing to come along and help a run a session (most of them
will be beginners). If you think you can help and would be free sometime around
then or need more information, email Kirstie Main at kam22.
on 5th/6th May
5th – Beginner’s Trip: This will be spectacular, confidence boosting trip
on a beautiful section of river where we'll practice our skills and maybe learn
to surf! A truly tasty apres-paddle dinner is also on the cards! If you want to
come along, email km732 asap as spaces will be limited!
6th - Intermediate Trip: Exams are coming but don't stress, for this is
your chance to chill out and freak out on some grade 4 epicness!
Depending on water levels we'll hopefully be heading to the Blackwater or the
Tilt of Terror! This will possibly be the best 1-day trip of the year, so book
it in your diary as a 'day off revision'! Shotgun a seat, email km732 asap as
spaces will be limited!
Post Aqua Ball Trip
are still spaces on the trip this weekend, so anyone who wants a great weekend
of paddling, please get in touch with Amy (ak632) asap. The Garry is releasing
on the Saturday, so will be great for some playboating fun. We'll be staying in
a bunkhouse then paddling somewhere else in the area on Sunday.
2 spaces left on the 1st aid course this weekend - likely to cost sub £15 for
any members who sign up! Contact Calum (cf344).
And lastly some notes
from me, your sexy secretary (Very very sexy. Mmmmhmmmm.)
an effort to get 'down with the kids', I've created a YouTube account
for the club. Please send all your videos (or links to them) to jw200 so
I can get them up there.
- More pictures and videos needed to update staucc.com, but I can probably get most of the pictures from facebook.
Keep your quotes coming in for the quotes section of the website.
- If you run a trip, please either write a blog post yourself, or delegate it to someone else.
Finally, this is what I looked like when I woke up this morning.
Did you know? The US interstate highway system
requires that one mile in every five be straight. These straight
sections function as airstrips in times of war and other emergencies.
