We just did a final risk assessment this afternoon for tomorrows' Turkey Race and I'm afraid the news isn't good from the river. Water is huge and there are issues at Vanessa and ghost weir - far too risky. We've decided to run the race on the canal at the club (rather than cancel or postpone) - same time (1pm), same classes, same prizes, same good cause! We might even get more paddlers to partake! BTW - same pre-race mince pies and mulled wine!!

The National Paddlesports Day on 29th of June is an initiative of Canoeing Ireland with the aim of increasing the profile of Paddlesport activities within local communities and nationally. Celbridge Paddlers are happy to support and participate in this initiative by hosting a 'Come-and-Try Canoeing' event between 11am and 1pm on the day. This will be followed with a bar-b-que and refreshments for all paddlers (and their backup teams!). Fun guaranteed! (not sosure about the weather!)
