A few people undertook a AC Level one Rescue course at the forth last year and expressed an interest in a level 2.
I'm looking to run a level two course this year. so who's interested? and when is a good time of year for people?
perhaps before the paddling season kicks off? ... See MoreSee Less

MERSEY CLUB WEEKEND – March 10, 11 & 12
This year the Club is organising a number of Club/Family weekends on the Mersey and Forth Rivers.
The first is on the Mersey River on the long weekend in March, the 10th to the 12th. The Mersey is a fun Grade 3 river, about 90 min from Launceston.
The themes are:
• Entry level (catering for sub grade 2 paddlers via
the Club Incepts)
• Come and Try Slalom (in any white water craft)
The program has yet to be finalised. However it will include river trips and DIY slalom sessions.
Water has been booked.
Camping and toilets+showers are available at Arm River Camp for a small charge. BYO camping accommodation, cooking equipment and food. (The bunkhouses, kitchen and lounge at Arm River Camp are already fully utilised by the Slalom National Talent Squad and Tasmanian Slalom Squad who will also be there that weekend.) Otherwise there is camping at Berlin Wall.
If you can't make it for 3 days, come for one or two.
Further weekends are planned on the Mersey on:
May 5th/6th- (first weekend in 2nd term)
Sept 15th/16th- (late in 3rd term) and
Oct 13th/14th- (last weekend of the school holidays)
And on the Forth on:
April 14th/15th and
Post here or SMS me on 0411 862 748 if you are interested in coming for/during the first event on March 10th to 12th. The program will depend on the level of participation.
Carpe Diem (or, in this case, the weekend)
