Bradford and Bingley Canoe Club
Bradford and Bingley Canoe Club

Day to day running

FACEBOOK

 

We have a Facebook group! It's for club members and friends of the club to hook up informally. If you want to join it, have a word with Mark Fairbrass.

 

DOOR CODE

 

The door is secured by a code and a key. You'll receive the code when you join. Do not disclose the code to anyone - not even if you think they're a club member. After any breach of security, we change the code and take disciplinary action.

 

HUT KEYS

 

Keys can be bought from Wendy for £5. If you decide canoeing's not for you, please return them.

 

SAFE - GUARDING

 

You should feel safe, respected and your equipment should be safe. Don't tolerate anything less. Tell Jason Duckmanton or Wendy if bad stuff is happening. We'll discuss with you how we can sort it.

 

PHOTO'S

 

Make sure your photo's of people uphold their dignity. Ask people's permission before you put their image on Facebook or other web-site. The club site is not a public place.

 

EMERGENCY INFO

 

Your membership card is stored in the index on the white table. By first name. We recommend that you put emergency info on the back.

 

GUESTS

 

Brought a non-member to paddle with you? Get them to sign in and PAY THEIR £2 FEE.

 

CLUB BOAT BORROWING

 

If you want to borrow a club boat to use off site,  book it out. There's no charge for our boats. Contact James T or Paul F in advance about it.

DOGS

 

Dogs should be on a lead like the sign at the entrance says. We can't have dog whoopsies on the river banks where we do rescues, carry boats and stand to coach. Also, there is nowhere on site to safely leave dog poo so you'll have to take those little bags away with you. Having said that, we like dogs.

 

RESPECT COACHES

 

Our coaches are volunteers or British Canoeing staff. They should only be doing what they've agreed to do. So if you want to join a session, make sure it's agreed before you get changed. If you want to paddle nearby, be self sufficient.

 

BOAT STORAGE

 

To store your own boat at the club, contact secretary@bradbingcc.co.uk. Members' boats only and it's £25 per year per boat.

 

NEWS

We are planning a

Festival of Paddling

over the weekend of 7th and 8th August. Including proper festival camping! Save the date.

PAA's (club activity leaders) are having their qualification refreshed and the standards are rising. Tony has done a grand job of re-structuring the assessment process and we look forward to more members attaining leadership status in the club.

Members can borrow boats and paddles. Talk to Paul Ford or James Taylor if you want to take some gear away on loan.

Slalom Returns to Bingers

We will be holding a Div 3 and 4 slalom over the weekend of 4th and 5th September. There will be races and loads of opportunities to help out in the week before and on the days. Pop it in your diaries!

Club Events

Are now on our CALENDAR page. They can be put on by anyone qualified and insured to run an event. Keep checking!
