QUIZ NIGHT – Jordan GB Rafting

Hi guys,

I will be running a quiz night on Saturday 2nd September at Great Leighs Village hall to help raise money to get me to the World Rafting Championships. The Night will start at 8pm and will also have a raffle which has some brilliant prizes (e.g. 3 course meal and drinks for 2 at Weatherspoons Braintree, £30 Freeport voucher, £25 Tesco gift voucher, alcohol and more)

Tickets only cost £3 per person or £10 for a family of 4.

Soft drinks and snacks will be available. People can also bring their own alcohol.

Would be great to see as many faces from Braintree Canoe Club as possible for a great night.

If you would like to buy tickets contact me on Facebook or text me/ring me – 07773518908

Thanks again for all your support guys,

Jordan Farrugia

Website changes

Sometime in the next couple of days I will be making a small change to the website.

We have been trialling a system called WebCollect that allows the Club to hold the membership details on a “proper” database. This will make administration for the Secretary much easier going forward and save a lot of problems of “reinventing the wheel” every time the Committee changes.

To begin with the only change you will see is a link to the WebCollect site.

The system will be rolled out for new members initially and so rather than completing a paper membership form they will enter their details online.

Eventually this will be made available to all existing members and then you will be able to keep all your details up to date without having to tell a Committee member and more importantly you will be able to renew your membership online and (hopefully!) pay that way too if you want to.
