Feb 23 Leaders and Seconds This is a trip for those who can roll, and are pushing into Grade 3, where the clubs top boaters teach how to run river trips safely, and how to lead lines, and generally look after beginners down the Grade 2 section of the Hurunui river. Check your emails for an invite from Development Officer Jack McKenzie.
Feb 28 - Mar 1 BullerFest A weekend bender in Murchison, not an official UCCC event, but a good time. Fill a car and head off for a carnage-filled weekend.
March 7 & 8 Citroen Extreme Race Again not an official UCCC trip, but if you're nuts, and like to race down something semi-scary, then head to Queenstown for the weekend to pit your skills against some of the most hard-core paddlers NZ has to offer.
March 14 & 15 Zero to Hero #1 Our first official beginners trip of 2020! 30 of our finest beginners are ably lead by our old and new leaders and seconds in the pool, the lake, and then for two amazing days down the Hurunui River. Not to be missed, the exciting whitewater action is just the beginning, with a legendary UCCC party on the Saturday night. Don't miss the sign-up email for this one!
March 21 & 22 Girls trip Running similarly to a Zero to Hero, however just for UCCCs finest female paddlers.
March 28 & 29 Zero to Hero #2 Our second beginners trip of 2020! Exactly like the first, sign up quick to avoid missing out.
April 4 & 5 River Rescue Want to get your on-river safety skills on point? This one's for you leaders and seconds. A weekend of learning how to be safe on a river, and how to safely deal with the many situations that we face as kayaking instructors. Check your emails for an invite from Development Officer Jack McKenzie.
April 10-14 White Water Week A whole 5 days away over Easter weekend in the NZ kayak capital of Murchison. Wherever there's water, we will paddle it. Starts of on the easy sections, with the aim to build up to some of the classic runs down the Buller river. Plus of course the standard UCCC goon party every night, and when OUCC arrive, it gets even better.
April 29 Running Dinner One of the best social events on the UCCC calendar. Paired up, you get to visit 3 other pairs for starters, mains, and dessert, hosting one of them. Followed by an after-party, and a night not to remember. Bring your A-game, it's party time.
