Rickmansworth Festival 2014 Feedback Across both Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of May the Rickmansworth Aquadrome hosted the annual Rickmansworth festival. The event is a prime opportunity for the Nomad Kayak Club to raise its profile, secure additional members and generally highlight the sport of canoeing. This year we were blessed with excellent weather which really made a difference, this good luck coupled with some fine planning from key members of the NKC committee saw us have probably our most successful event to date. Key statistics: 50+ NKC members helped across the weekend, many thanks to you all 75+ members of the public paid to ‘come and try’ canoeing A further 60+ members of the public are now keen to try canoeing at NKC This is all very promising and…

Rickmansworth Festival Weekend 2014 – 17th/18th May

Rickmansworth Festival Weekend 2014 – 17th/18th May

Event
A very important promotional event for our Club is coming up soon! Over the weekend of 17th/18th May, The Rickmansworth Festival takes place at the Aquadrome and your club needs your help to promote the club and let festival goers know who we are and what we do. This means we can recruit more members and remain a healthy and active club. The Club needs as many members as possible to help to promote the Club over the two days, as this would mean less work for everyone whilst giving all members a chance to explore the festival themselves. To promote the club, we will have an information stand at the clubhouse and we will be running ‘Come and Try’ sessions on Saturday 17th at 13:00, 15:00 & 16:30 and…
