    Ok I will be going paddling around Bridgewater marina next Saturday. We will be paddling up and down the Bridgewater canal and generally having a chuckle, putting the world to rights and a few brew stops so nothing serious.
    Fingers crossed both my new canoes will be ready.
    We will be meeting up at 10 am at the marina and getting on the water shortly after.
    Here is a link to the marina.

    So if you fancy joining us drop me a pm and add your name to the list here.

    Cheers Greg

    Anyway I forgot to add if you dont have a boat and want to come there is a canal path running alongside that you can wander along and join us for the brew stops.

    There is a couple of other people coming from Sotp as well so its looking like its going to be a good one......if not a little cold.;)

    I'd like to come along, but I'm working until 1pm. If someone would be prepared to give me a mobile number, I could call and find out where you are.

    I had a little bimble around the Stretford area of the Bridgewater today and guess what, its frozen. I have a feeling that an Inflatable canoe and sharp Ice will NOT mix, so im bowing out of this one guys, sorry

    From what I have heard it will warm up a bit by weekend. Fingers crossed anyway :rolleyes:

    Unless we get a massive blizzard we will still be going so you are all welcome if you change your mind.
