This is the new Bradford and Bingley Canoe storage building, handed over early to the club for use as a control building for the Canoe Slalom held on the river Aire on May 5 and 6. The building is still to be fitted out with racking for the boats and is yet to be "opened
The timing computers were upstairs, overlooking the river and the Slalom. Whilst downstairs the building was used as a Cafe and to keep the prize giving under cover from the rain.
