Most of you will be aware that the Mooloolaba Paddlers membership and storage fees will be due on 1 May. The committee have decided knowing that some paddlers during this time of COVID 19 will be either out of work or have a major change to their financial situation, therefore if you are in this position and need some time to pay for your storage and membership please don't hesitate to email me...
During this time of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak I thought it a good idea to put an informative newsletter to let everyone know what our current, and long standing rules are regarding paddling, club storage, parking, and club equipment. If you see anyone that is not abiding by these rules don't hesitate to let me know.
Due to the ever changing world and helping all Australians survive this nasty virus . We will leading by example and cancel all training sessions as of today until further notice. This does not mean individuals can not enjoy some time out on the ski as part of their daily excises. Please make sure we all follow the rules on social isolation when getting your craft.
Jen and I would personally like to thank you all for be such an awesome group of understanding people.
