Update from the EO

Dear Paddlers, June was another fantastic month in the State of Queensland for Paddlesport with a very successful Northern Paddlers forum in Cairns. A great turn out from a range of ages and disciplines saw some great debate and thank you to all that attended. If you are a sea paddler, then July is a good month for you with a whole weekend of paddling clinics, read below for more details. This is unfortunately my last EO update and I will be moving on from QC in July. I would like to thank the paddling community for all of their support and I have very much enjoyed my time as CEO. May I wish you all 'Happy Padding' one final time! David Hills
