Starting this week (Wed 1st April), as the clocks go forward, we expect people to be paddling more regularly on Wednesday nights. However the rota for supervisors who will be available to provide access the shed etc. will not start until Wednesday 6th May this year.
From the 6th May a duty officer will be at the hut every week from around 6:30pm to perform the following duties:
- Open the hut.
- Record details of non-members on temport membership forms
- Record details of who borrows kit and ensure it is returned.
- Collect money from those who borrow kit.
Club members and non-members who wish to visit the club, and can paddle to BCU 1* level are welcome to join these sessions. Note the duty officer is not responsible for looking after or coaching any paddlers, though of course they may if they wish to.
On the last Wednesday of every month we will be offering and advertising taster sessions where people who have not paddled before may come along and have a go. The club will ensure these sessions are staffed by a BCU level 2 coach.
At the last AGM it was decided that the cost to borrow club equipment would be £10 per session for a full set of kit i.e. boat, paddles, BA, spray deck.
If anyone would like to volunteer to help staff these sessions either as a duty officer on a regular Wednesday night or to help with a taster session please let the club secretary know. A rota will be forthcoming.
