Sat Paddle/Membership

River may rise with the rain (looks out of window) but provisionally a Saturday morning paddle may be in the offing  this week 11am at Jackfield.

If you haven’t already renewed your membership bring along this Saturday (in an envelope with payment and a S.A.E), gate code will be changing soon.

River. Clean. Up. – March 4-6th

Nigel has mentioned the “Clean for the Queen” event taking place over the weekend 4-6 March 2016, he had been contacted by the Ironbridge & Severn Gorge Lions about us being involved in a river clean up.

This event is also suitable for those republicans amongst you as its a clean river as a result.

So put that weekend in the diary and we can confirm something nearer the time when we know more.

Slalom Day June 7th

On Sunday 7th of June, Staffs and Stone will set up some gates at Jackfield Rapids.

TCC members are welcome to attend, there is a small charge which the funds go to both clubs to cover costs of baler twine etc

The courses will be starting to be set up from 9am and will run through until the afternoon.

Happy Paddling

(If you are planning on a general paddle down on the rapids that weekend then Saturday maybe a better option)

Boxing Day River Race

Twas a chilly day, it was minus something degrees centigrade.

Six souls entered the water and paddled down to the Ironbridge from Dale end park, alas the ice was too thick to pass and a hasty upstream retreat was made back to cars. In the the style of  Brian Hanrahan [22 March 1949 – 20 December 2010] all the canoeists and kayakers were counted out and then counted back in again.

River Severn at Ironbridge Shropshire

To the Black Swan it was for chip sandwiches!

See you back at the pool in January [the second weekend i think]
