The Worcester Ring Challenge is back. Now named the Tim Jones Challenge, this year’s will be on Saturday 19th September (bit later than usual, should still be decent weather and the swans will be more relaxed…). Hope to see you there. More details at https://worcester-ring.org/
The Worcester Ring is our 15 or 20 mile circular event through the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. It is open to canoes, kayaks, SUPs and anything else you may care to paddle (although we think K4s are too long to get round the corners…). It’s a varied, interesting circular course on mostly canals with some river. It’s fully marshaled with food and water stops, hot food and showers at the end. And a challenge, definitely a challenge.

Hi. Thanks to lots and lots of hard work by Sue Hawthorne and Simon Davies we are now able to vote on whether to incorporate the club – for it to become a limited company.
Please see the rationale for doing so, the Articles of Association and the Bye Laws. These can still be amended and will be reviewed by a lawyer. Please note I am not intending to print copies of these out for everyone for the AGM.
We will be voting on the club becoming limited company.
If you can’t make it please vote by proxy by emailing the club at email@example.com
Nominations for Officers are now open, I will put a sheet up on the noticeboard. Volunteers are always very welcome – if you want to discuss please grab me or another member of the Committee. Various roles are likely to be unfilled.
If you have any resolutions you would like the AGM to vote on please let me know shortly.
