“Hooray Hooray! The First of May. We’ll Paddle the Cow from Lake to Bay” – credit to Tom Staebell

VCKC will be holding its Annual “Running of the Cows” this year on Saturday April 29 and Sunday April 30th. This is a two-day moving water event where we paddle the Cowichan River,  from the Lake all the way down to the ocean – river water levels permitting. This is open to all VCKC members who have completed moving water (river) canoe training.  Club members may also join us just for camping, as its a great place to hike and bike in the area.

 Camping is available at the Stoltz Pool Group Site in Cowichan River Provincial Park on Friday April 28th, and Saturday April 29th. Cost is $10 per person per night.

 On Saturday we will start at the weir at Cowichan Lake at about 10AM and paddle down to Stoltz Pool camp. A shuttle will be set up for those who do not paddle the canyon.  There we will enjoy a chili dinner and a great evening at the campfire. We pack up camp and complete our paddle on Sunday April 30th.

 Camping and Saturday night dinner is open to all VCKC members at a rate of $10 per person.

VCKC also invites all moving water paddlers in the area to the Cowichan River that weekend to celebrate the last great weekend of river paddling before the summer low water levels set in.
