Kia ora multisporters,
With the somewhat limited race season almost over for this year, your dedicated SLMC Crew are busy organising the next seasons' madness. But first and foremost, we need your support! Join our club of merry multisporters (and make sure all your newbie mates do too)! We’ve kept our fees the same this year and membership is still an absolute bargain at $25. So, jump online and join the club for 2022-2023 - subs are due 1 April 2022.
**Please use a unique email address for each person you are signing up as a member**
In case you need persuading, here are the membership benefits:
Our races have a focus on the social aspect of the sport and we get together for coffee & kai after each race where tales are told & arch rivals become best mates
Cheaper entry to club events (get your membership fee back in just a couple of events)
Access to the best coaches and multisporters in New Zealand to share ideas and experience
Access to club outings to go on some amazing missions with some like-minded multisporters
Advice, support & encouragement from passionate club members
Club members can book their grade 2 river kayaking certifications through Bill Godsall on 021 442 626 or firstname.lastname@example.org (essential for most races involving kayaking & for our regular club river paddling missions)
The Club owns some kayaks that can be leased out to members or those who want to try out kayaking for the first time - for information and lease fees, contact one of the SLMC team.

For those who missed out on Coast to Coast this year, here’s to another year of adventures in preparation. And to those who towed the start line in GODZone this year, you may well have had your fill for a few more weeks yet!
We would love to hear your ideas about what you’d like to see from the SLMC Crew this year, so get in touch if you have some ideas. We are also looking for volunteers for each of the winter series races, so please let us know if you’re keen to help. email@example.com
Hope you all get out and enjoy the stunning autumn adventure conditions.
See you out there,
The SLMC Crew
