...More 'About the Club'

Monthly Meetings

Regular monthly meetings start at 7:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, from March through October at the May Bennett Wellness Centre, 135 Davie Road, corner of Davie & Hwy 33. Meetings feature news on upcoming trips and activities, education presentations, and slides or videos of club trips. The club also has a great library of books, videos, maps, and almost anything to do with paddling. On meeting nights, members can check out any available items. The year-end meeting is a "Windup" social with "award" presentations in various categories.

Training and Safety

Each summer certified instructors offer "flat water" or lake lessons, kayak lessons, and advanced techniques to club members. We have many well-experienced members who offer valuable coaching. See the Resources page for a list of some instructors associated with the club. The club encourages all members to be versed in rescue techniques and each member is ultimately responsible for themselves. Safety has become increasingly important in our waterways with vastly increased power boat traffic and government legislated requirements. A consistent theme of the club is to increase safety awareness of anyone using paddle powered craft.
