What a year we’ve had. I won’t repeat all I’ve written in the Annual Report – it is here ready for your casual consumption.
My sincere thanks to all the contributors – our Committees and Paddlesports and our valued clubs. I do recommend taking time to read the articles. Our paddlers, our coaches, our officials and our volunteers deserve particular praise for a magnificent 2017.
The office of PaddleNSW is located in Sports House which we share with dozens of other State Sporting Organisations. The office will be closing for Christmas / New Year from Thursday 21 December to Monday 8 January. That will lead us into a busy period preparing for the NSW State Sprint Championships (20-21 January); Cockatoo Cup (26 Jan); Marathon Race#1 in Canberra (3 Feb) and the iconic Parra Paddlefest (11 February)…..amongst many other offerings.
On behalf of the staff and Board at PaddleNSW, may I extend a very Merry Christmas to all our members and families, and a safe and prosperous New Year. 2018 promises to be just as exciting on and off the water.
Cheers, Peter Tate – PNSW CEO
