Hey Oxos!

Hopefully you're all ready to get back to trips for 2021! We're all undoubtedly a bit rusty after an extended lockdown, so we'll need some training to get back up to scratch!

I'm looking for expressions of interest from paddlers to run a Swiftwater Rescue course  sometime in the early New Year. For those who haven't done the course before, it is a full 3-days with Jeffe at whichever river is going when we book, usually the Mitta Mitta or the Snowy River at the Pinch River confluence. It covers everything you need to know about whitewater rescue, and is a requirement of the club for becoming a paddling leader.

We need 7 or more people so we can run a course for club members. This course costs $510, and for that you get an amazing experienced instructor with decades of experience rafting on the Colorado River's Grand Canyon. Anyone who has done it before will tell you how awesome this course is. 

Training grant funding is available from the club https://www.mumc.org.au/training

See you on the river!
