Announcement to All CCR Members

From Richard Munn

I'm delighted to be announcing that the ownership of CCR is passing over to the Wilderness Canoe Association. The WCA and CCR have always had similar roles - to promote wilderness travel, and to act as a venue for sharing information. It was my wish that the site would ultimately end up in the hands of a group that would carry on the vision and mandate of the CCR site, and I am confident that is going to happen. I've been involved in discussions with the WCA for some time, and I'm pleased with their vision for the site in the future. Equally as important, the WCA is a large organization and has the financial and human resources necessary to keep the site a viable entity.

I offer my best wishes to the WCA on their new role in running the site. A WCA Internet presence will be a good thing for both their members and those who currently use the CCR site. My thanks to all who have contributed over the past decade to CCR, by giving time, financial support or through the sharing of information.

From the Wilderness Canoe Association

The Wilderness Canoe Association (WCA) is pleased to announce that it has acquired Canadian Canoe Routes from Richard Munn, its founder.

The goals of the WCA and CCR are similar in that both exist to serve the canoeing culture and its community. Under the new ownership, CCR will continue to be a vibrant website devoted to sharing information on canoe routes and all facets of canoeing. It will continue to be a meeting place for individuals who share a passion for wilderness travel, particularly by canoe and kayak. And it will continue to encourage and sustain this passion amongst both its members and the general public.

The WCA expresses its special gratitude to the three long-serving moderators, Rob Collette (rob in angus), Chuck Kimmerle (ckimmerle) and Barbara; they have carried a heavy workload for a long period of time. We are very happy to confirm that all have consented to continue. We thank also CCR members for their patience and continued participation.

Our first priorities are to deal with the spam, in particular in the Forum, the Routes and the Gallery. Further announcements will be made shortly.

To administer the site we have an enthusiastic team consisting of Marilyn Sprissler (marscanoe), aided by Erhard Kraus (Erhard) and Allan Jacobs (gunwale grabber), all long time members of the WCA..

More information on this acquisition can be found on the Wilderness Canoe Association’s website and general information about the WCA can be found here
