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.
The AGM is on Wednesday 5 December at 7.30pm. Please see the Notice of 65th Annual General Meeting 2018 and AGM Minutes 2017.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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.
We are shocked and saddened to hear that Alistair Collier is missing at sea. He was taking part in a GB Outrigger Canoe Association race off the Dorset coast yesterday, and is still missing. According to media reports, the search has resumed today, led by the Coastguard and involving RNLI lifeboats and the police. Alistair is a valued member of the club and a keen paddler.
I don’t have any further information on the circumstances. We can but hope he returns safely. Our thoughts are with him, his family and friends.
Please DO NOT drill a hole in your new key card. It will stop them working.
Club key holders should be aware that the rear entry door has changed and that their existing key will no longer work. New keys can be exchanged for old keys by contacting Fess – who will be at the Club on Sunday morning at 9am or Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5pm until 6pm.
Some of our Juniors and U23 paddlers attended the national regatta at Nottingham on the 14th and 15th of April, there were many successes, along with some new personal bests set, even if the conditions were not optimum. Well done to all participants and good luck to all racing this season.
The annual Worcester Hasler will take place this year on Sunday 6th May, along with the K1 assessment race on the same day. The details of the race can be found here:
Worcester Hasler 2018
We hope to see you there!
Well done to all Worcester paddlers who have taken part in the Waterside series and good luck to all doing the latter Waterside races and Devizes to Westminster this year. There was a good turn out for the first race of the series, with Pascal and Kieron taking 3rd in Junior K2, Paul and Gary taking 14th in Senior K2, Bob and Daryl taking 22nd in Veteran K2 (their first ever race), and Katie placing 14th in Ladies K1.
The Worcester Ring Challenge is our 15 or 20 mile circular event through the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. This year it is on Saturday 14 July 2018 and entries are open. You can speed round (the record in a K1 is under 3 hours) or cruise it. It’s a challenge either way. Racing boats, open canoes, SUPs, tourers, sea kayaks, everyone is welcome.
