Junior Paddlefest a great success for LKCC
Paddlefest 2015: What a brilliant weekend at Junior Paddlefest 2015. Two days packed with paddling and fun with a lot of new techniques and kayaking skills learned. A huge thanks to the organisers and instructors from all the happy kids (and parents) at LKCC and also the the LKCC instructors who gave their time and assistance at the event.
Beat the Barge Vicarstown: Well done to everyone who competed in beat the barge in Vicarstown, Co. Laois recently. There was a great turn out between runners, walkers & kayakers and it was a very enjoyable race by all.
South East Canoe Polo Squad: Great to see our junior paddlers taking part in the South East Canoe Polo Development squad in Kilkenny recently. Thanks to Paul, Roger and Mick for providing the coaching. If any of our junior members wish to take part in the next inter-club session, please contact Paul Byrne at LKCC.
Kayaking on the Corrib: Always great to paddle the Corrib no matter what the weather. Thanks to Jim & Sarah Morrissey (Kayakmor) for hosting a well organised marathon race in Galway recently. Well done to Catherine on coming second in the women’s GP and Marissa on competing in her first ranking race.
Interesting in Kayaking: Kayaking is now moved to week-ends due to closing evenings, if you would like to kayak, please keep an eye out on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/laoiskayak also at the website www.laoiskayak.com online.
