We hope all members have had a fantastic Christmas break and wish you all a Happy New Year for 2018.

Pool sessions begin again this week with Pontefract on Thursdays and Batley on Fridays. We need to increase numbers at both sessions in order to ensure these do not run at a loss as they have been doing recently or we may have to look at reducing sessions. Please try to come along to as many sessions as possible to support your club.

We are also looking to begin Saturday river training sessions on the Calder in order to get beginners used to river paddling. We will also be running some river trips over the winter months for all abilities from beginners to expert.

Slalom training sessions will also be running most weekends hosted by Yorkshire Slalom, boats are available to borrow but must be requested in advance.

We will also keep members up to date on the developments at Linton Locks new whitewater course.

If anyone requires any information on any of the above please feel free to contact me at: andy@westyorkshirecanoeclub.com
