Rhe Tamar Canoe Club is having an open day/ get together out at Mill Dam, Longford on Sunday March 1st. We hope to get as many members as possible along for a chance to catch up and have a paddle of some sort. We would also like to extend the opportunity for family members, and new paddlers to come and have a go, or those who haven’t paddled for a while to reacquaint themselves with a spot of paddling.
