Re: What is going on in Canoeing Ireland now ?

What I heard was that the issue was around procedure for the selection of the new CI CEO. There might be more, but I think thats the crux of it.

Re: What is going on in Canoeing Ireland now ?

No idea, but I'd like to hear whats going on too. Having said that, I doubt it's anything as serious as some of the issues from 2010/2011, from what I've seen the Canoe Ireland board, volunteers and staff have done some great work since then. And CI will have a brand new CEO soon too (Any updates on...

Boluisce Water Levels

http://www.riverspy.net/opwgauge.html?code=31075 So I'm hoping to get a run in on the Boluisce over christmas, but I've no idea how to read the graph. - Whats a high level? - Does a high level on the graph mean a high damn level? - Does a high level equate to a release? - Is a release represented by...

Re: Canoeing Ireland EGM - Financial Accounts 2013 Ratificat

Thanks Adrian. With limited context my overall feeling is that I'm happy that the members of CI had enough insight and the ability to demand that certain standards are kept. And I'm happy we have people in CI that will honor this and carry out an investigation and draft a report in a very short time...
