Hello Paddlers

PUTRAJAYA TRAINING   |   HALLOWEEN PARTY   |   SINGAPORE REGATTA   |   TRAINING BREAKS   |

1) PUTRAJAYA TRAINING

Our race in Putrajaya (Malaysia) is just one week away.

Our Captains insist that if you are part of the Putrajaya squad then you must attend training this Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday.  This Sunday the arrival time at Kallang remains at 09.00 (09.30-11.00 on the water) for the final training with our German team mates.

Those going to Putrajaya will receive an email in the coming week confirming all the arrangements and logistics.


2) HALLOWEEN PARTY

We will be holding our annual Halloween Party at Andy’s house after our training on Saturday 29th October 2011.

Everyone will be asked to contribute $10 (please pay the Social Secretaries). This will cover dinner, mixers and ice.

Please bring along your own choice of alcohol and snacks.  Needless to say (but I will anyway) that fancy dress is compulsory, mandated and absolutely required!

The Halloween party is always memorable.  The first one I attended included the appearance of a ‘guest’ Witch who it seemed had already been deeply affected by the spirits.  Upon arrival she plonked herself down on a chair decorated with tealights and her dress immediately caught fire!  She was only saved from immolation by the quick action of the Captain who blew the flames out before they took hold.  Thankfully she was in no state to realise the dire peril that she had been in and was only slightly singed (with no damage at all sustained to her pointy hat…).

So if you want to join in with the fun and games at one of the liveliest team events of the year then please register online now:
