weekend and to David for putting Peter up in his home, also to Joanne
for providing hot rolls and home baking both days, and to Ashley
providing the great photographs.

Loch Lomond on the weekend of Sat 6th and Sunday 7th of April and do a training

kindly agreed to spend a weekend back at his first club offering coaching
sessions both on the land and on the water for adults and juniors alike.

would be £30 for one day only or £50 for the weekend. More details will be sent
out about the format of the weekend and what you can expect to happen. E- Mail firstname.lastname@example.org back if you are interested in one or both
Thanks to Sandra's husband, Jim, for restoring our club shield! It looks like new now - another bit of history saved!
