The Invertrossachs Water Activities team are running a Kayak B1 Permit Course in the New Year and are looking for candidates.

This is an opportunity to hone your kayaking skills and to achieve a Scout Association Kayaking Permit for B1 waters. You will start off in a warm, indoor environment, where you can gain more confidence on the water, and develop your personal kayaking skills. You will then progress to Loch Venachar where other aspects of kayaking, group management and weather issues are covered.

The final part of the course is the assessment.

Owing to the limited number of training sessions, we are restricting the course to candidates who have some kayaking skills e.g. can paddle in a straight line and perform basic manoeuvres

Active Support are in the process of building bridges. The top bridge at Invertrossachs had started to fail so the team set about constructing a new one. It also gave them the opportunity to guddle about in the water which, as we all know, scouts of all ages like to do.

Active Support hold a work day at Invertrossachs once each month to carry out various items of maintenance and improvements to the site and this year have worked on clearing a new area, felling some trees, and extending the car park. In the New year the are going to be levelling a patch of ground and preparing a base for a new maintenance store in order that the space currently taken up by maintenace equipment in the boatshed can be freed up.
