River Trip: Calder, Sun 3rd Feb

A club organised paddle of the River Calder, from Mytholmroyd to Sowerby Bridge, is planned for Sunday 3rd Feb. The paddle is being arranged by Peter Dawson and is ideal for beginners who would like to experience a good first river run with the club.

The paddle is an easy grade 2 at low levels and is intended to give some of our newer members a chance to get a first taste of paddling rivers so we encourage you to please book your slot and come along. If you are an experienced paddler, the run is still fun and interesting with a number of slides, surf waves and Sowerby Bridge at the end to play at so please help support your club.

Meet up point is here. For sat nav, HX6 2LN will get you very near to the car park. The planned meeting time is 10am.

Alternatively, if you do not know where the usual meet up point for a Sowerby Bridge paddle is, please contact Peter Dawson to get details of an alternative meet up point at 9:30am, close to the M62.

If anyone requires more info or equipment please let Peter know on the email address below.

It is IMPORTANT that people let us know that they plan on attending so we can organise sufficient numbers of competent people for safety and leadership on the river. Additionally, if the trip is cancelled due to excessive water levels, we will be able to notify you in advance and prevent a waste trip.

This is also a call to arms for some of the more competent paddlers to help provide safety on the day to complement the usual attendees – this is a good opportunity to get some experience in providing safety cover and assistance. Please let Peter know if you are able to assist.
