    Intermediate Trip

    Evening Brian, I have now declined as I am struggling with my back and given low water it doesn’t seem worth taking the morning off work. Sorry for the short notice. Matt.

    Peer trip. Title: Advanced Whitewater River Trip - Grade III/IV any requests? Date: Saturday 10th Nov. Location: TBC - depends on water levels. Meet Time: 9.30rain Fri evening see levels sat a.m. chat on what's app
  11. Trip cancelled due to low water levels and lack of paddler availability. Let’s hope for more water next week! Not Official LCC Event **** trip moved back a week to 27th as I’m no longer available on 20th **** Title: Intermediate Whitewater River Trip - Grade II/III Date: Saturday 27th October Location: TBC - but hopefully something a bit different, perhaps River Wharfe - Grassington to Barden Bridge if there is water about. Meet Time: TBC - depends on location Contact: Matt Butel - 07494416803 - m.t.butel@icloud.com Will confirm details (location and meet time) by 19:00 day before trip then we can arrange lifts as required.
  12. Not Official LCC Event Title: Intermediate Whitewater River Trip - Grade II/III Date: Sunday 7th October (moved from previous day as I’m not available Saturday) Location: TBC - depends on water levels, but thinking something local Meet Time: TBC - depends on location Contact: Matt Butel - 07494416803 - m.t.butel@icloud.com Will confirm details (location and meet time) by 19:00 day before trip then we can arrange lifts as required.
  13. I was maybe thinking of going up the west coast driving from the Ulverston end.
  14. Not Official LCC Event Title: Advanced Whitewater River Trip - Grade III/IV Date: Saturday 13 January Location: River Tees - High Force down to Scooberry Bridge. Currently approaching a low medium level, so should still be at a nice level tomorrow. It’s a relatively short section so the plan would be to repeat it. The section downstream of Barnard Castle could be an alternative if there is opposition to my original suggestion! Meet Time: Meet 10:00 just past the road bridge which crosses the river on the B6277 on the way into Middleton-in Teesdale. There is a Church on the right hand side of the road and a sign for a public car park. This is not far from the get out for the High Force section and not too far to get to Barnard Castle for the lower section either if we decide to do that. Contact: Matt Butel I assume Mike and Brian will arrange something for travel between themselves, as will Sten and I. Give me a text/call/email if required. Update: meeting time pushed back to 10:00. Cheers, Matt. Matt.
  15. Not Official LCC Event Title: Advanced Whitewater River Trip - Grade III/IV Date: Sunday 10th December Location: TBC - depending on water levels; hopefully somewhere a bit different, maybe Upper Tees.

Cancelled - levels are low and all water is frozen up in the hills so not going to rise either. Also forecast to remain sub-zero during the day tomorrow.
