This website is free for you to browse and see a little of what the club and its members are doing (or at least as much as gets on the website which isn't everything since going canoeing is more fun than doing websites). The club tries to be welcoming to newcomers to canoeing and kayaking and if you are new to the club and want to inquire about a new starter session i.e. to book on for Collingwood Dock (Tuesday evening or Saturday morning) or a pool session (other than Bootle pool), as a newcomer please contact 07570526947.
With all the other club participation events the move to outdoors soiree was a little delayed this year. It was hoped to link with the Liverpool Light Night due this Friday. The menu of Paella and Scouse was organised and the Jars/ Lights were decorated, thanks go to Katie and Luke. The paddlers arrived for the club weekly session at 6pm with some new and older faces to join in the dock paddle or canoe polo game. The weather was sunny but the wind brisk so the hot food and drinks were a welcome. It was a chance to catch up, review paddling events and look forward to events to come- including the expectation of two special arrivals and the comparing of bumps. A surprising arrival of home baking was the icing on the cake!!! Thank you Wayne (the orders are on the way). With the evening coming to the close and the night drawing in the lights were lit and photos taken.

The Club would like to Congratulate Mike Moffit on his recent (last Saturday) National award presented by
British Canoe Union for his 'Outstanding Contribution to Paddlesport' link to photo
This was announced at the BCU 75th Anniversary Dinner in Nottingham. Only a few awards were presented for outstanding support in the sport. As many of you know Mike has a long history with paddling from Scouting Stuart's participation in the sport, Mike becoming Coach, then Polo coach to GB Canoe Polo Sqaud coach. He is still one of the most active Coaches in the Club and Nationally. A WELL DESERVED AWARD
Congratulations Mike from Friends of Allonby Liverpool Canoe Club
