Our Instructor Training Course Sept-Dec has been a brilliant success so far-
we have 14 trainees who are here every day training to be the next qualified
batch of instructors. Our next 11-week course will begin on February 2nd,
and we are currently accepting applications. I asked our current students to
write out what they think of the course, and I’ve pasted below if you’re
interested in reading their genuine comments. Unfortunately, these days
there are many people either out of work, out of college, or in the wrong
job, and this course may suit someone you know if not yourself- if nothing
else, it’s great for personal self-confidence, fitness and a bit of a
change! Email me if you want more details, but we have to say this current
course is great craic- lovely students of all ages and nationalities, and
everyone’s enjoying it.
This weekend, there’s an Elvis festival in The Great Northern, which
includes a Surfing-Elvis competition in Rossnowlagh at 11am on Saturday. I
believe the amazing Richard ‘Dickie’ Gillespie will be the DAC Elvis. It’s
DAC and Home field have a boot camp coming up weekend of Nov 11-13, if
you’re interested in knocking off a pound or two in a fun way, and are free
next weekend, we still have some space. It’s not a ‘mean’ weekend, we’re
going to do the training, but it’s for allcomers, so put into it what you
can! We’re also now booking for weekends next year, College class trips,
clubs & sports groups, and I am feeling very generous as it’s nice to be
nice if you book in advance before we take our Christmas Holidays.
