Check out the club if you're wanting to get some basic skills, connect with other canoeists, find the put-ins and take-outs and get into paddling around southern BC. A lot of the club's focus is whitewater day-tripping, but there are other opportunities too. Trips every weekend April - September, and more, plus associated non-club trips.

See you on the rivers, PY.

This month's meeting on this Wed 12th has been re-located at the suggestion that canoe club members instead go and see the Reel Paddling Film Festival in Abbottsford hosted by Western Canoeing...

Details & more, including a number of private courses, are in the club's March newsletter, now on-line:

Monthly reminder that the new newsletter is up, training starts at the end of this month, and the entertainment at the next meeting (April 9th) will be slides and video of whitewater canoeing in Costa Rica.
