EAGLE DAY Activity - Tuesday 16 th April 2019

River clearance- during the day time - the idea will be to clear a route through a local river , hopefully enabling an easier passage for other canoeists at some point in the future. Its only suitable for a small group of paddlers/workers, NOT large numbers.

I'd like to try and come down the River Wensum from Costessey Mill to Eagle Canoe Club to ensure its clear ahead of our club paddle on this stretch of river on the Easter weekend. The area below Costessey Mill is normally passable but overgrown .

Bring flask, packed lunch/ nibbles and work gloves, bush saw, lopppers , secateurs , rope , other hand tools which you are confident / able to use from a canoe.

Meet at the club - 0930 hrs for loading and departure to Costessey Mill. Park up, unload, shuttle cars if necessary

I suspect we will finish by lunch time / early afternoon.

On line sign up is available , please use it so i have an idea of who is coming.
