Below is the list of proposed padding trips from October 1st to Christmas. The actual river may change due to weather and river levels, but we hope to have alternating easy and harder trips throughout the season. There may also be additional trips which will be advertised.
Where you share cars, please pay your share of fuel costs and don’t wait for the driver to ask. Some of the trips are quite a drive.
Monday A very short email will be sent out on Monday to all club members advertising the proposed trip and its difficulty for the following weekend. No reply required. (It will also ask for volunteers to lead the trip by Wednesday.)
Thursday An email confirming details (river, meeting place, times etc) to be sent by noon Thursday to all members. If you are interested please reply at this stage
Friday Anyone wishing to go should reply by email / text by the end of Friday, please indicate where you intend to meet.
Saturday A confirmation email / text, including who is meeting where, will only be sent to those going on Saturday.
