COVID-19 and Club Membership

Dear Members

Due to the COVID-19 situation we do not know when our season is actually going to start. The Club Committee has discussed the fairest way to adapt our membership payments in light of these issues.
We intend to make a pro rata reduction in membership payment for next season i.e. April 2021. We will only know how much this reduction will be once we know when we can start this season.
Hence we would ask members to pay their full membership this year as normal. As soon as we have any update we will keep you informed.

While you are all off the water there are still loads of paddle sport related activities you can have a look at on the British Canoeing website. These include, workout videos, quizzes, films coaching tips etc.

Kind regards
St Austell Canoe Club
