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.

FOACCL has received a number of thanks by various media e.g. via Facebook. Thanks indeed to all who made the event happen.
Saturday 18th April saw a busy day at Collingwood Dock with League Division 3 and Division 4 matches on two pitches and the first of the two Development Training Days of the weekend using the other two pitches. Sunshine all day without a cloud save for the occasional vapour trails from a high flying jet was most welcome. Also most welcome was the coffee and Danish pastries in the 'butty tent'. Many thanks to all those who helped provide the facilities used by so many.
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
