The Derwent Canoe Club AGM will be held Thursday, 7 September 2017 at the Derwent Sailing Squadron (Marieville Esplanade, Sandy Bay) commencing at 7:30pm.
Come and join us for a meal at the DSS from 6:30pm onwards.
Entertainment will be provided after the meeting with talks and photos about members trips to the Grand Canyon, Mauritius and the Masters Games in New Zealand.

The agenda for the meetings is:
• Welcome and acknowledgements
• Minutes of the previous meeting
• Commodore's Report
• Treasurer's Report and Financial Statements
• Election of Directors
• General Business - Strategic Plan
The Club elects Directors for a period of two years. The Board will then fill positions from the pool of Directors. If you are thinking of nominating for the position of Director, nominations can be made prior to the meeting or on the night.

A nomination form, together with additional information on the formal and volunteer roles available within the Club and who currently holds these positions, can be obtained by emailing the secretary.

Please remember that your attendance at the AGM (and other Club events) helps the smooth running of the Club and you can have your say on priorities, direction of the Club and provide feedback to the Board on the success (or otherwise) of past initiatives/events and future plans. Needless to say, it also provides a great opportunity to catch-up with some old friends, meet new people in the paddling community and hear about some highlights of the year from other paddlers.
Regards

David Marshall
Secretary, Derwent Canoe Club

Under 3 trip tomorrow - Given it’ll be a quick trip no matter where we go I’ll adjust the meeting time at Huonville to a more civilised 9am.
Trip will probably be a bouncy Tahune to Southwood. No scary features just some fun wave trains. Ability to do or be X-rescued (or roll) is a must on this trip. If in doubt give me a ring to discuss or car pool.
