    Default Paddling Midlands Sat 3rd Feb

    Hi All

    Anyone fancy a paddle next Saturday 4th Feb?

    I'm based near Lichfield, but happy to travel, any ideas?

    I've signed up for the Barle in March so any experience on moving water would be great!

    Cheers

    Default Paddling

    Hi Richard

    are you still looking for a paddle? Do you mean the 3rd or the 4th, Saturday or Sunday? Either way we should be able to join you. Do you fancy the Trent from Alrewas to Burton? I need to do a recce on this bit for the OCA rally. If you want more moving water there is the bit from Twyford but it's not exactly a lot more and the shuttle is a bit of a pain.

    Hi Chris,

    I cant believe I got the dates wrong!

    Yes I was looking at the Saturday ideally. Looks like the weather will be kind and the winds not too bad according to the BBC!
    The Trent sounds great if you can make it. I'm happy to do the Alrewas to Burton stretch?

    What time where you thinking? any time is good with me.

    Cheers

    Default Trent, Saturday

    OK let's go for 10.30 at the Church in Wynchnor. We'll try not to be late... Never done this bit before so we may have to choose a new put in but the maps and aerial photos look like it will go. Put on the canal, portage over to the river and paddle to Burton.

    Will bring a firebox and some wood for a brew

    Sounds good, I'll see you then

    I noticed you sell fire boxes on your website, i'll be interested to have a look at one. I usually use a kelly kettle.

    See you Saturday.

    I've corrected the date in the thread title so you don't look so bad but left the wrong date in your first post so you don't look perfect

    Cheers Crocbait,

    I'm just glad my knee's sorted, so I'll be out and about regularly now

    Try not to worry too many sheep, should be a nice weekend for it though.
