Just read some really good news tonight, the new organization, Paddlesports North America which replaces British Canoe Union North America has just become the official delivery organization for the BCU here in North America.
Alec and Sharon Bloyd-Peshkin explained the impact of this development on their website, Have Kayaks Will Travel:
This is an enormous development, and one that’s been in process for several years. It means that we can now promote, train and support coaches to deliver BCU programming and maintain all achievement records on this continent, and be more responsive to the needs of North American paddlers and coaches.
So congrats to everybody involved in getting this going and I’m really looking forward to watching PNA grow in the coming years.
A big congratulations goes out to brand new British Canoe Union 5* Coach and friend of the site, Mark Tozer.
He had his final assessment this past weekend and reading the posting on his blog, it sounded very intense.
Mark is also the organizer of the 3rd UK Storm Gathering taking place this October.
