Club AGM

The Burley Griffin Canoe Club Inc. AGM will be held on Sunday 30th September, at 11 a.m. at the river (Molonglo Reach).

Notice of proposed Constitutional changes were given in September Blazing Paddles; details of the minor changes are attached.

To assist with grants etc., there needs to be an acknowledgement of our 'Not for Profit' status.

The position of 'Safety and Training Officer' is too broad, so the committee is asking for a change to 'Safety Officer' only.  

All positions will be declared vacant and all current club members are eligible to stand for and to vote for all the Committee and other positions.

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 beginning to warm up and with a bit more sunlight and slightly warmer water, we will soon publish training times for new club member paddlers, here. There is generally a change (and increase) in paddling times with the arrival of Summer Daylight Savings time.

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.

Make up a car-load and have some traveling companions help with the driving and the cost of petrol.
