Pool Session Numbers Fairly Steady - but Stilll Need to Book!
Pool sessions seem to be reasonably uniformly supported at
present. But it is still necessary to book, so that we can
double-check that numbers are OK and also so that we can bring
enough equipment/boats of the right size for those planning to
- We ask members to let us know - preferably by the Friday
evening before each session - if they intend to come to the
session. This way we can cancel the session if too few people
are interested, ensure that at the other extreme there is no
overcrowding, and make sure that we have sufficient coaches to run
the session effectively.
- We would ask any potential newcomers/new members to let us know
they would like to come along to a particular pool session. That
way, we can make sure that we can give you a fair amount of
personal attention on your first visit.
- It would be appreciated if existing members/visitors could
similarly let us know before bringing friends or relations along to
a pool session.
- Indoor pool sessions are good for beginners and for those
learning to roll. Particularly if it is crowded, they are
less good for learning other 'in-boat' paddling skills. If
you are an existing member and do not fall into one of the two
categories mentioned, could you please consider whether you might
learn more by coming to the Saturday morning Cross-Stream Challenge
sessions as well as - or even instead of - the pool.
