The following newsletter was emailed to all members Aug 1 2017

Summer is in full force and the river is bustling with activity. The water level has dropped and the usual sandbars can be seen. If you get stuck on one please do not use your paddle to push yourself out. It can lead to broken paddles. Speaking of broken equipment please email if you know of anything that needs repair.

Group Paddle Reminder
Group paddles are a great time to meet other paddles and try new things. If you need a partner you can be paired up with someone else.
Recreation: Thursdays at 6:30 pm
Marathon: Wednesdays at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 10:00 am

Upcoming Trips

August 25th-27th, 2017 - Outlook to Saskatoon 3 day, 2 night trip.

(Room for 12 travellers - 4 people registered so far)

Friday we plan to meet at The Boathouse at noon and gear up and load all 6 canoes, then we'll travel to Outlook. We're hoping to be on the Water before 3pm and get 3 hours of paddling in Friday night prior to setting up camp.

Saturday we will be starting at 9AM, paddle downstream and break for an hour lunch around noon. We'll paddle till 6pm or 6:30pm before setting up camp for supper and sleeping.

Sunday starting your day at 9 a.m. we're planning a leisurely lunch and the balance of the trip is expected to take 4-6 hours depending on water speed and the pace we travel. We expect to be off the water before 5 p.m. on Sunday maybe even as early as 2 p.m.

Bring your own food, water and camping supplies.

Outlook Regional Park charges a Daily vehicle fee of $8 to get into their Regional Park if you don't already have a yearly pass.

(A fee of $5 per adult per day for use of the club equipment also applies to this trip. Cost for a member for the weekend would be $15.)
