A big thank you to club secretary Simon Ray for finally taking the bull by the keyboard and updating the Melbourne Outrigger Canoe Club Website (http://melbourne.outriggers.com.au/) . If you haven’t already, check out the changes. Also keep an eye on the Members Area for latest updates. All the details for the Inland Regatta can be found there!
The Christmas break will officially come to an end on Saturday 6 January, and we will return to regular Tuesday and Thursday sessions at 6pm and 8am on Saturday. We have a number of new paddlers and visiting paddlers keen to join us so please make them welcome when they come down.
