Canoe and Kayak Demo Day

Saturday 13th May 2017
10am to 1pm
Tilgate Lake, Crawley

 Kent Canoes are bringing a fleet of boats over for us to try.

These could be for personal or group use.

Come and try some boats out and talk to staff from this Scout friendly shop. You do not need to be looking to purchase straight away but it is a good way to help with budgeting for new equipment.

If you have any specific craft you want to try out please let Mark know below.

This even is open to adult members of West Sussex Scouting  (no under 18’s due to safeguarding and permit issues).

 There is a pay and display car park
There are changing rooms at the lake, but no other facilities,  please bring any food or drink with you.

 Although not essential, it would be good if you let us know if you are attending so we can have some idea of numbers and timing.
