Hire

Hire fees are waived for club member use, up to about two days at a time, in the following activities:

* trips open to all TCC members (e.g. trip intention posted on Paddle Flash etc before the club boat(s) are picked up from the boson(s)). Such trips may be club trips or ad hoc trips announced on Paddle Flash etc.

* training/practice of new skills (e.g. slalom)

* beginner coaching.

Waiving of fees is conditional on boats being returned by the end of the following day.

The primary purpose of the club boats is to encourage (relative) novices to try new things in a relatively safe environment.

When in doubt, apply the reasonableness test.
