Summer Racing Series 07A series of fun river races for club members of all skill levels. The races are handicapped, so anyone has a decent chance to win the prize, no matter how good a paddler they aren't.... It's held on Wednesday afternoons over the summer period. All members are encouraged to participate.
Night Paddle to the Park
The plan is to paddle up-river to the park at Long Pocket (a bit beyond the radio tower). We'll stop there for some food and a picnic, then paddle back to the shed.

River cleanup paddle - Sunday 21 Oct 07Fresh-clean-river / Save some marine life / Lets-get-out-the-Canadian-canoes trip... and Barbeque!
Everyone is invited to come on this paddle with a purpose. We've all seen (and collected) rubbish that floats down the river. It's ugly, degrades the environment, and harms the animals that have to live amongst it. This paddle aims to tidy up our bit of the river, collect as much rubbish as we can, and have a bit of a fun and exercise while doing it. We plan to start at Oxley Creek and paddle down to the UQ club shed (with the tide). Afterwards there is an option for a swim in the Uni pool.
Later in the day there is also a barbeque a few suburbs away - it's BYO (drink and food).
RSVP by Saturday to Fiona.
Date: Sunday 21 October
