A schools holidays paddling camp for Tassie slalom paddlers (young and old) will include two days of water release at the Brady's Lake Slalom course. Details are:

Saturday 8th October 2016, (24 cumecs) from 10:30am to 5:30pm

Sunday 9th October 2016, (24 cumecs) from 9:00am to 2:30pm

However due to inflows and further predicted rain this week, it is likely the course will be significantly higher than the 24 cumecs requested. Additionally, Brady's Lake itself is likely to be high. The combined effects can (if the Lake is high enough) make Mellifont Street stopper significantly friendlier.

The camp will only have a small number of people on the course and it will by no means be crowded. Other paddlers experienced and grade 3/4 capable are welcome to come up, camp and make good use of the plentiful water. Also, paddlers not grade 3/4 capable can enjoy the waves and currents where the course enters the lake - when the lake is high, it is an ideal place for the novice and intermediate to play and develop their skills.

Hi All,

The 2016 has been yet another cracking year in the schools competition. We have seen higher participation this year with six teams including two new schools, and a paddle power team which is great not only for polo but the grass roots of the club and kayaking in general.

Tonight will see the two stronger teams battle it out for first and second with Sacred Heart vs the Combined St Virgils/Hutchins Team. This should be a great game as their last bout ended in a draw.

Going for third and fourth place will be the fast finishing DCC Paddle Power team and the consistent and experienced Collegiate 1.

And rounding out the competition will see Collegiate 2 vs Collegiate 3 play it out for fifth and sixth places. Both these teams have improved massively this season and I'm sure there are bragging rights at stake.

There will be a presentation following the final game, spectators are very welcome. Roster below

7:30 col2 vscol3
8:00 DCC vs col1
8:30 SH vs St Hutchins
