Chairman’s EMag – 12th June 2013

Greetings All,

My sincere apologies to several of our recent members whose E Mail addresses were lost between one database and another. You are now in the loop.

We were blessed with good weather for a change, for The Big Event at Cwmbran. We had three tents that we shared with the ‘Waterworks’ project from TY Coch, who were teaching the kids how to build brick arches, Torfaen Canal Watch, who also had hands on skills for the youngsters, Ursula’s Sales Table that did very well and a Membership and Duck Race sales table. Thanks to all those who helped and hope you had an enjoyable day. If YOU would like to help here are the next dates.

13th July Risca Park, same format as last Saturday.
13th July Fourteen Locks, Amateur Radio Day, Trip Boat on the pond.
21st July Fourteen Locks, Pirate Day, Trip Boat on the pond.
27-28th July Big Cheese at Caerphilly, same format as Cwmbran.

Don’t forget the Archaeological Dig this week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 13,14 & 15th June, at Ty Coch. Parking at Pentre Lane or Hollybush Way. Please be on site by 9am for H & S and introduction to methods.

If you would like to be involved in any of the events, canoeing, Trip Boat, boat maintenance or organisation of any kind we would like to hear from you, AND still looking for a treasurer.

Finally, all members would have received notification of the AGM, our President, Lord German, will be speaking on 6th July.
