BGCC 28th Birthday Party and Presentation Dinner
The BGCC will be holding our annual Presentation and Birthday Dinner on Friday 15th June. While we do have a serious side to this evening – presenting awards such as Male and Female Paddler of the Year, Club Member of the Year etc., there are laughs to be had. Very few speeches, lots of (exaggerated) stories, good food, quite a bit of wine flowing and prizes. So get together a table of paddling cronies, or introduce yourself to other paddlers.
Hellenic Club 6:30 p.m. Friday 15th June. $40pp
Autumn Time Trials
Through autumn, Craig has decided to carry on the Wednesday evening time trials, with all participants only doing one lap and starting at 5:15 p.m.; it can be fast and furious! This time of year is often the best paddling weather, so come along and support it.
Winter time trials will commence in June: 9 a.m. on Sundays, on weekends we don’t have races. We will also try and hold 3 time trials at Nelligen to take advantage of the warmer conditions and a change of scenery. See ‘coming events’ for dates.
While we would love to welcome new members all year round, we do advise new paddlers to get back in touch with us around October. With the water and air temperatures steadily dropping from now (April), plus the reduced daylight hours and the fact that most of our coaches are training and traveling for our main race season, we can’t commit too much time to new paddlers.
If, however, you are super keen, transferring from another club, or you are an experienced paddler please let us know and we’ll set you up in a training group.
