2015 Winter Club Challenge

The British Canoeing Club Winter Challenge takes place from 1st November to 29th February. The idea is to record how far club members paddle during the winter and also the number of different places the club paddles during these 4 months.
There must be at least 3 club members present for a paddle to count towards the challenge.
If you paddle during these months, let Lynda know (derehamcanoegroup@gmail.com)

DCG AGM: Thursday 26th November

DCG AGM poster

All members will be very welcome at Dereham Canoe Group’s AGM at 6.30pm on Thursday 26th November at Mattishall Scout Hut, where we’ll celebrate the past year with slideshows and awards, as well as drinks and snacks. Please let Lynda know if you’ll be coming so we know what refreshments to bring. (email: derehamcanoegroup@gmail.com). We hope to see lots of members there.

Dereham Canoe Group is run by its members for its members. We’d very much like to have some new members of the Committee to help run the Group. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice, an expert, or just enjoy watching from the bank – what we need are your enthusiasm, ideas, and skills. At present we’d particularly welcome someone with administrative skills who can help to take bookings for river and pool lessons. If you want to know more about what joining the Committee would involve, you’re welcome to talk to the chairman, James Brown; email james.brown@jic.ac.uk or phone 07957 605640

Sue Brooks Challenge

In memory of our former chairperson Sue Brooks, DCG is hosting a cardboard canoe race and BBQ on Sunday June 23rd.

This is a fun event in Sue’s memory, raising funds for a charity chosen by the Brooks family.
Please pass this onto, and invite as many people as possible.
In addition to the rules on the poster, there should be no wood used in the construction, no paint or varnish other than a name, and no plastic. Just Cardboard! Competitors must bring along adequate bin bags to take your craft home again after the race.
There will be a special prize for a successful role in your cardboard kayak!
