Upton Warren – West Midlands paddlers day

Six cygnets on the water but apart from Luke, all is peace and calm.

No one went to the Alps. We must have known something, with poor weather and popular rivers closed due to extensive flooding.

We did go to Upton Warren instead for the West Midlands paddlers day. Held on a large lake, Damo and Luke both passed the new two star tests. Damo forgot when asked about the trips he had been on, apart from the Pool? He had to be prompted! Rachel passed her one star and Mike’s daughter took part in the Paddlesport test. Simon and Sarah were out in Canadians. The rest of us drank tea and eventually got on a bell boat.
