Kia ora mai ano waka whānau,
A big mihi out and thank you for the feedback cultural connections received around joining and or contributing to our roopu. It is much appreciated.
We now have new members and some awesome cultural ideas, which we`re looking forward to sharing with everyone very soon, to further enhance our cultural connections with our beautiful Tauranga Moana.
Ngā mihi nu nui whānau,
Ora (on behalf of CC roopu).
Hopefully you're all well and fit and keen to get paddling again! We've been here before but please spend 1 min reading to refresh yourself on the procedures for TMOCC under COVID Alert Level 2.
Level 2 limits group gathering to 100 persons outdoors and 50 people indoors.
Disinfectant Cleaning is now resuming
At the end of a training using the sprayer provided please disinfectant everything you touch including:
We already have a sign in sheet at the shed and everyone (each individual) who enters the shed or uses equipment needs to sign it – needs date, time, first and last name and what canoe you paddled in. Also note we have added a phone number column for the phone that is taken on the waka. We are asking that all waka take at least one communication device whilst out on the water. Phone bags are available and you can tuck the phone into the front or back of a lifejacket
Direct from the COVID Website:
Mandatory record keeping comes into effect from 11:59 pm on 7 September 2021.
Everyone aged 12 and over legally must keep a record of where they have been when visiting certain places so contact tracing can happen quickly. You must do this at all Alert Levels.
The club has a COVID tracer code on the door and table.
A really important part of level 2 and 1 is contact tracing. If we do have a positive case, we need to be able to quickly and correctly trace all contacts.
Please remember all training's MUST be booked via Liz Webster (Bookings Officer)- well in advance (not 1 hour before or 5mins before or after ) - this is also part of our contact tracing
TMOCC Executive and Health and Safety Committees
Kia ora Clubbies.
We trust you and your loved ones are safe and well in your respective bubbles.
With the change of Covid levels, it is timely to provide an update on several items.
Move to Covid Level 3
Level 3 means our TMOCC Club shed and equipment is still closed to all members. Those with private canoes are able to paddle and to check government rules around Level 3, i.e. remaining 200m from shore. Check out the Covid-19 Govt Website for sport and rec guidelines.
Please click this link to place your order. All the details including a sizing chart are there.
We hope to have a try-on day when Covid Level 2 is in place. We'll let you know!
CUTOFF DATE for this round of orders is Sunday 12th September 2021.
