4 Star Development Day – Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th December 2011

Where: Teesdale

This trip is only open to those people who have already done their BCU 4 star training, so we can look at developing people towards doing the assessment.

The plan is to do some grade 2/3 paddling with an emphasis on personal skills development and a recap of river leadership, so we will either go to one site or do a trip to cover these effectively.

On Sunday we will be joined by other club paddlers for a river trip so there will be opportunity to practice leading.

Where do we meet: At the club at 8am to load up / organise car shares. Or 9:45am in the first layby on the A66 westbound after Scotch Corner, just after you’ve left the A1 north. This is the one with a café and toilets just after passing the Scotch Corner hotel.

What do I need: You shouldn’t have to ask!

Organiser: Les Ford  01484 854099 or email Please contact Les to confirm you are coming along.

Other Information:


If you are doing both days then the suggestion is to stop over in the area.  Les is looking at possible places to stay and sending details to those coming along.
