Newsletter #3

Inland Outrigger Canoe Club Newsletter #3

Echuca mini 17th October, 2009

Names and payments are now being taken for the YMCA Echuca mini marathon to be held on 17th October, 2009. We are entering two teams of 18 paddlers in the six person outriggers. Don Larcombe is taking names and the $20 entry fee now from interested paddlers. We are hoping everyone in the club will support this event and paddle with us.. Please catch up with Don at training.

Registered members.

We are proud to announce we have 37financial members of the club. If you know anyone who would like to join then bring them down to training. We need more paddlers to participate in the YMCA Murray Marathon.

Upsteam with a paddle program!

Training for all junior paddlers is at 3.30pm after school on Monday nights. The mission for all our juniors is to bring down one friend and introduce them to our great sport. There are heaps of places for kids to compete in the relay at Christmas. The ultimate aim of the program is to enter two six person relay teams in this years YMCA Murray Marathon. This will include all our senior paddlers who wish to participate. So join us and have a go. We will be compiling a list of paddlers for those teams in the very near future.

World sprints in Noumea 2010

The AOCRA National Sprints Titles in February at Bond University in Qld will act as a selection event for the World Titles. Several of our members intend to compete for qualification. If you think you have what it takes perhaps you should send us an email and we can assist you with preparation and training. Of particular interest is the singles racing which must be done in a V1 (rudderless single) to qualify. They are hard to paddle. If you are fair dinkum consider buying one from Zulu.
