Winter Wednesdays

Now that the nights are drawing in we're putting together a series of social evenings at the club house called 'Winter Wednesdays'. The idea is to have an informal midweek get together, watch a canoe / kayak movie, slideshow or simply tell a few stories around the woodburning stove. Get down to the club house between 7.30 and 8pm.

1st November - Jim Krawiecki - Sea Kayaking in Iceland.

8th November - Andy Ross - First Aid Evening, including AED training. 

15th November - Andy Hamilton - Adventures in East Greenland. 

22nd November - Dawn & The Gang - Our First Year with MCC.

29th November - Andy Basford - Lofoten Islands, Northern Exposures. 

6th December - Michelle Mudhar - Paddling Para Style - Michelle Joined MCC last winter. To live day-to-day in a wheelchair you need to be inventive.
