Committee of the murky past

Below are the committees of the murky past who have worked 'hard' at making the club what it is today. Although i'm not sure that getting rather trollied on a Wednesday evening singing to ABBA and dancing like your from a boy band/ girl group from the 90's is hard work. If you're from the golden age where kayakers were real kayakers with proper equipment - none of this fancy pants state of the art kit, and where booties were mandatory for every swim regardless of the reason, and your memory isn't quite as murky as ours. Please get in contact with any missing or mistaken info and a photo (from back in the day of course) and we'll get it updated.
