An update from HPPCC

Dear Paddler

Everyone at the club hopes that you are keeping safe in these difficult times.

We have been notified that the National Watersports Centre will close from Monday for the foreseeable future, so we are advising any club coaches or members who might have boats stored in the Club compound that if you want access to your boats that you remove them on Saturday.

Additionally we understand that some club members may want to go paddling during these difficult times.  If you want to borrow a club boat on a long term loan then please contact me and we will arrange to sign one out to you on Saturday.

Please remember the government’s advice on socially isolating, but also remember that paddling alone can be dangerous if you get into trouble or need help.

We will be at the club at 10am on Saturday to open up for anyone who wants access to equipment.

For those of you who won’t be able to get out paddling we would like to offer some training on a Thursday evening.  As we can’t meet face to face we are inviting you to meet in cyber space.

You will need to follow the information below to join in our go to meeting training which will be on planning trips.

If you haven’t used Go To Meeting before then please click on the link at the bottom of the invitation below to download the app on your computer / phone / tablet.  Only use the phone number if you are not using your phone /tablet / computer connected to the internet.

So to join the training

If you are using video you will be able to be seen, but you can turn off your video camera on the meeting screen, so you will just be able to be heard.

Let’s try this and see if we can keep in touch and keep engaged with paddling.
