Update from the Interim EO

Dear paddlers, July as usual was another great month in the State of Qld for paddlesports. Please remember it is renewal time so if you have not renewed your membership  make sure you contact your local club. Brisbane Canoeing put on their annual race with a great turn out with over 100 paddlers competing. I can't stress enough that as paddlers we have to be courteous to fellow paddlers and those around us including volunteers. Please remember that without volunteers many of our events would not happen. A reminder that the Qld Marathon Titles and our Annual AGM are on this weekend the 8 & 9 of August. Hope to see you there. Congratulations to those Qld Paddlers who ventured overseas with an Australian team, well done for your efforts. May i wish you all safe and happy paddling. Phil Pegg
