A question which has been asked recently... What's happening at the club? Even in the summer of summers where water has been scarce there has rarely been a Wed evening where the club hasn't run sessions for juniors and intermediate paddlers at Shaw's bridge. Sessions have been run at Glenmore including 1 star and prep for 2 star. This incuded both Open Boat and kayak sessions.
Further afield the club has had representations in both the French Alps and Canada. Both these trips were organised within the club and were open to members with the appropriate skills (not to mention funding and permission from spouses :))
13th-15th September brings a club trip to the Wet West Paddlefest in Fort William, Scotland and the annual pilgrimage to the Liffey Descent on 28th September. 18th - 19th October has LCP attending the Crana Canoe Weekend in Donegal on mass. A weekend suitable for abilities from 2 Star. The Crana weekend was a big success last year with entire coaching sessions taken up by LCP. The intermediate boatercross was won by LCP last year. As the wet season approaches (hopefully) the club will be running regular saturday morning trips to the Upper Bann, 6 Mile water and Lagan rivers with organised trips further a field to the Roe, Donegal and beyond.
Plenty more going on.. check back for further info about PLF, WWS&R, Lower Liffey & Brian & liz's exploits
