Freestyle Come And try it Session 14/07/2018
During the normal club session on the 14/07/2018 I will be running a come and try it session to all club members wishing to have a go. This will be a great opportunity for club members to have a go and see what paddling a playboat is all about. If any club members have a playboat they wouldn’t mind people having a go in please contact me so we can start to develop a small fleet for people to have a go in .
