Summer’s here!

summerIf you’ve been in Orange over the past week or so you might laugh at the ‘Summer’s here’ headline with temperatures decidedly on the ‘cool’ side.

However Daylight Saving has officially begum and so the mighty Colour City Dragons have moved into their summer training timetable:

  • Tuesday 5.45pm for 6pm on the water
  • Thursday 5.45pm for 6pm on the water
  • Saturday 7.15am for 7.30 on the water

To make training go smoothly please be on time so that we can have many hands to pull the boat out, warm up and be on the water for a full session of fun.

Also remember to update the Doodle Poll so we know how many people to expect – useful in deciding how many boats to get ready.

Paddles UP!

To our outgoing Membership Registrar, Lynette McLeod and Secretary Anni Gallagher

The fees for the 2016-2017 paddling year were set – details plus information about how to pay them can be found on the Membership Page.

It was also agreed that that there will be a club meeting on the first Saturday or Sunday (depending on the season) of each month following training to discuss any issues. Thus there will be a meeting following training on Sunday 7th August. The main issue to discuss will be the planning of regattas the club wishes to attend this season.
