This is a great inspirational video that highlights some great images and words to inspire and motivate us all in our paddling journey.
Mel Dunn and her 5 crew finished the 714km race in just over 50 hours to get 21st place overall. A darn fine effort and a reflection of all the hard work over the last year. 68 starters with 55 finishing.
In their Voyageur class of canoe the were 7th overall and 4th women’s team.
Got a problem that needs your help…….
During Winter (or any time) when its cold, dark, windy, raining you decide that you really should clear your head with an OC session. Before you can answer the question of “will I be the only one attending?” you have turned off the alarm and left your mates one person short.!
Couple of years ago, we had a sort of ‘diary’ happening where members would contact me if they were likely to attend a session. These people were then the first contact if for whatever reason (weather, lack of numbers etc) the session was to be cancelled. Probably not important for you ‘locals’ but if travelling from the likes of Singleton, Bellbird, C’bong, Tronna or have arranged child care etc it really irks.
Yeh I know there are all sorts of fancy calendars hanging with Google and Yahoo. But let’s KISS and simply send email if planning to attend & let a better system evolve???
