Erne Paddlers

Hi All Club Members,

For your convenience we're going to list all regular evening and weekend sessions for Feb and March in this Event Post.

(note: we've set the date to start at end of Jan so it stays visible all month)

See thiis post for more info and discussion:

Hello club members,

Below is the eagerly awaited programme for Feb and March :)

But first some important information...

We are using to manage the club. Teamer is a tried, tested and trusted online platform for managing sports teams (so you will note that some of the language is more for teams than clubs, eg “players”, “team members” etc). It is linked with a very secure payment provider (see last week’s email for more info).

Initially there are a few important steps for you to take to get everything set-up. After that, booking onto courses, confirming your attendance and paying should all be able to be done in a couple of clicks, which is great for everyone! If you have any problems, just text or call Harry on 07808649173.

Please note, for club members that we had the right details for (i.e mobile phone, not landline), you should have received a Teamer invite, please accept this invite and complete your Teamer registration.

Membership Renewal

If you have already renewed membership, thank you. If not, please see our previous email here:

You still have a few days to avail of the early bird discount rates, so don’t delay. For those that were members last year, membership renewal is essential for insurance before you paddle with the club again this year, therefore you must renew before attending any of our regular and new courses listed below.

For people who have not previously been a member, a discounted membership fee is included in your first course, so don’t worry about membership forms, etc for now.

Joining Erne Paddlers on Teamer

Here is the invite link to Erne Paddlers “team” on

If you have already joined teamer, (to renew membership or for another team) and are logged in, your details will be already filled in and you just need to click “send request to join team”.

If you are not logged in, or not yet registered with teamer, then click the appropriate link to get set up.

An Erne Paddlers “Team Admin” will accept your request shortly.

There is a Teamer app you can install on your phone (android and iphone). If you receive our updates via the app instead of by sms, this will save the club some money, so please consider using the app.

When you are logged in, especially if you received an invite, please check your details are correct.

Booking your course

When we have you all registered on Teamer, future course booking will be through that system. In the meantime, please choose your course from the list below and book using this form:

Payment requests will be sent through Teamer, once you have booked on.

We look forward to hearing from you all with your bookings. Again if you have any problems at all, please get in touch with Harry at 07808649173

See you all out on the water :)

EP Team.
