Hi guys, I’m a lone wolf. Our competitors merely adopted the water…but we weren’t. When I’m not downing bevvies with Hammo, hitting the gym or watching Narnia (with The Hammer probably), I’m kayaking on the upper for the bants.

Committee Elections

Every year around the end of February there is an AGM. The whole club is invited and this is where the new committee is elected. Each person wishing to take a position on the committee must present their ideas and thoughts on why they should have the position, the person with the most votes takes that position. You hold your position for one year from the summer term to the end of spring term.

If you think you have ideas or want to take some responsibility why not give it a go?

During the year, the committee meet regularly, and the minutes of each meeting are posted here for the club to see. If there is anything you think the committee should discuss which they might have missed, email the Gen Sec.
