On Friday the 8th July Greg and I picked boats up from the balcony and it was in a reasonable state and we took boats and left it in a reasonable state. â”¬Ã¡During the course of my holiday I received complaints about the balcony from canoeists trying to retrieve their boats from behind a mountain of polo boats, piled up in a ridiculous fashion, on all 3 steps. â”¬Ã¡â”¬Ã¡Moreover, the middle step polo boats were left precariously untied and the paddle bin moved in front of the fire exit (despite the fact there was actually room for it on the steps).â”¬Ã¡ Therefore, when we returned from Wales Greg and I spent a good hour or more rearranging the balcony and securing the polo boats before we could put our boats back.â”¬Ã¡ In light of this I would ask:
1) Holiday Poloists- please remember that canoeists are still accessingâ”¬Ã¡kayaks from the pool even though we donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t have pool sessions, so please try not to make them completely inaccessible.
2) EVERYONE tie up the all boats- donÃ”Ã‡Ã–t be lazy.
3) Poloists: 20 polo boats on the balcony, 7 in the cupboard at the pool- excessive much? â”¬Ã¡The 4 plastic ones should be moved to the garage.
4) Anyone using the balcony do NOT block the fire exit there is no need and it will get us in trouble
Not impressedâ”¬Ã¡that I had to waste timeâ”¬Ã¡sorting out the polo boats.

More Polo Tournaments...
just got an invitation from Kingston Kayak Club. They are having a tournament on the 2nd & 3rd July - entry costs are 70 pounds. Anybody interested? Would have to reply within the next few days so let me know.
SO next Wednesday (that's the 22nd Bryce) we will be having a barbecue, followed by a last visit of the year to pop. If you come down to the field behind Tocil from 1 o clock onwards we will be sizzling meat on some grills into the afternoon, accompanied by rounders and a few beverages. From 7 onwards we will circle, possibly moving to the piazza at some point. After today's stirling performance by certain members of the club in raft building the theme for the evening will be onesies. Un-onsied people will be punished.
Pop looks as though it may be busy so buy your tickets in advance; circling will be outside (with contingency plans for bad weather) so you wont need to buy the circling tickets (not that they're any more expensive if you did have some strange urge to go in early).
See you there!
