House-sit in the Meadows?
We have a four bedroom terraced house in the Meadows which
we are looking for people to "house sit" until the end of January. There
would be no rent, just household bills to pay. We are also looking for
people to rent it after this.
Our preference would be to have fellow paddlers. If you
are interested please call David on 0789 115 2303 or Angie on 07772933182.
East Midlands Division 4 Series
Congratulations to Holme Pierrepont Canoe Club upon becoming East Midlands
Division 4 Series champions.
If you are ranked in Division 1, 2
or 3 you can enter races for the next Division up from your own.
Take the opportunity to experience bigger water and compare yourself
with higher-ranked paddlers! This can also be a path to promotion.
For 2013 a “paddle up” achievement
(beating 40% of the field at a next-div-up race) can be counted as
equivalent to a maximum-points score.
