The end of this financial year is past and it is time for you to renew both your PNSW membership and your BGCC membership. Hopefully this is the last year that you will need to renew these two bits separately - or so we are promised by PNSW.
Please read the information and instructions for joining/re-joining in the Membership heading from the menu to the left of here.

Burley Griffin Canoe Club has an active Canoe Polo division.  New and returning players of all ages and abilities are welcome.
Canoe Polo is a team event played on a 35 m x 23 m field set up in a swimming pool or on flat stretches of water. Teams of 5 paddlers endeavour to score goals in a net suspended two lasix 40mg metres above the water, the ball being thrown by hand or "flicked" with the paddle.
Canoe Polo in Canberra is played at both a non-competitive and a competitive level.
A weekly competition is held on Wednesday evenings at the Tuggeranong Pool with set up commencing at 6:45 p.m. and Games from 7:00 p.m.
If you are interested in trying Canoe Polo or returning to if, please contact the Canoe Polo Convener, via this website, prior to coming to the game on a Wednesday night.

Thank you to Kiaran Lomas for our timekeeping.
A few points to consider: When completing your race you must finish between the blue buoy and the pontoon to have your time recorded. When doing laps you stay outside the blue buoy (pass to the left of the blue buoy). This complies with rules you’ll encounter at PNSW marathon events and also makes it easier for the time keepers to keep track of who is finishing and who isn’t.  A 1 minute penalty will be applied to consistent offenders. The new Kingston Loop option is going ahead for paddlers willing to complete a portage. There has been a lot of interest from ski paddlers who don’t want to portage and the committee is working out a safety plan at the moment. Once the plan is devised the Kingston Loop option will be available to more paddlers.
Please volunteer to time keep or barbecue. If you are unsure of how the timing is done we can sit you with someone who has some experience.

Remember we have a booking sheet for prospective time keepers that sits next to the sign in-book in the shed.

Club membership payment for 2014-2015 is now available for new members. Please join both PNSW and BGCC or you won’t be permitted to participate in club events.
