Hello there Oxo's, we're back!

Last updated: December 4, 2020

The committee is also pleased to announce that our return to play plan has been approved by Melbourne University Sport which means we can resume our club activities!

In line with our return to play plan, small trips of 6 people can now commence. All participants must also follow the new participant guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. We also recommend that people try and use public transport or partake in human powered trips where possible to avoid carpooling.

Tuesday meetings and Thursday socials are still suspended but gear hire is allowed under our return to play plan. If you need to hire gear for a club trip, contact your trip leader or relevant sports officer.

Stay safe, and be kind to each other,

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
