A trip is taking place this Sunday morning. The plan is to go to Dunkellin but this is conditions dependent. The trip is geared toward L2′s but all are welcome. If you’d like to go, email the club with ‘River trip 26th Jan’ in the subject bar before Thursday @6pm.
The pool session next week will be one hour playboating from 8-9 and one hour div 2 polo from 9-10. Cost is €10 for polo, €15 for playboating or €20 for both. We’ll have Barry and Dave again for the playboating session so the extra fiver a head is to cover their costs. We’ll also have a new club Varun which is a type of playboat if people want to give it a go.
The Irish Club Championships take place in Kilkenny on the 12th and 13th April. If you are interested in taking part in any of the events please email the club before Sunday 18th as club entries close shortly. For members of those clubs that enter there will be free training weekends over the next weeks, see below, in all disciplines. The format of the championship sees points awarded to all participants, so quantity counts for (almost) as much as quality. While there will be lots of kayaking going on and opportunities to take part in different events this will also be good fun with plenty of socialising to be done as well. It would be great to see as many of our members both new and old taking part so sign up-your club needs you!!

The course costs 130 euros for members. For those who have already signed up further details about times etc will be sent out during the week.
GCPL has had to be postponed for the next two weekends. This is because of the flooding in Leisureland-we will have further updates on rearranged dates and possibly a new location (if necessary) as soon as we can.
