Sports Council support for Canoe Club Share

Stuart McQuaker chair person of Kintyre Sports Council was present on Friday 9th April when members of  Kintyre Canoe Club took to the water for their first outdoor training session of 2010.  It was an opportunity to use new paddles and other equipment purchased using funds obtained from South Kintyre Sports Council. The club were pleased to have received a cheque for 300.  The funding has allowed the club to purchase new paddles and air buoyancy for their kayaks. Club member Sid Gallagher said We are very pleased with the funding award. It means that we are able to get many more club members on the water safely. 

The club has been very active over the winter with members enjoying several kayak training sessions in the pool at Aqualibrium.  There have also been a number of excellent half day and day trips along the local coast line and one rather windy but enjoyable surf kayaking afternoon at Machrihanish.  The club is open to anyone over 18.  For details contact club secretary Alix Geyer  01586 553099 or Sid Gallagher 552294.
