Thank You: Laois Kayak and Canoe Club would like to thank everybody who contributed and supported our bag pack at Dunnes Stores, Portlaoise on Saturday 10th December. All contributions were very much appreciated and contribute highly to the maintenance of the club.

Water Rescue: Congratulations to Matt McGrath on completing the White Water Rescue Technician course in Wicklow recently. Matt is one of our instructors and this course will benefit both Matt and the club immensely.

REC 3 Course: Fergal Hill is organising a Rescue emergency care (REC3) revalidation course on Friday 20th of January (evening) and full day on Saturday 21st of January. It will be held in Castletown, Co. Laois and will cost €100. This is a re-certification so you must have REC3 already in date or very recently expired. If you’re interested please contact Fergal through our LKCC Facebook page.
