Missing Paddles

Between early afternoon on Sunday and Tuesday morning last week, two sets of Galasport paddles went missing from the compound at Grandtully. We have two Div 1 paddlers very upset at losing paddles they bought with their own hard earned cash and now unable to compete with their own blades.

If you know anything or have discovered extra paddles in your vehicle / club stock, please return them to the compound at Grandtully. Meanwhile the trust that is essential in sport has been broken and athletes are reminded to keep their paddles in a safe place at all tines.
