    • 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    • VCKC Clubhouse on the Gorge

    Fall clean-up day involves sprucing up the grounds and outdoor spaces of the clubhouse and doing a thorough cleaning of the interior including meeting rooms, kitchen and storage areas.

    Wondering what to bring?  For that and any other questions, contact Sandy Rattray by email to:  clubhouse@vckc.ca

    • 18 Nov 2017
    • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    • Meet at VCKC clubhouse

    Tentatively we will paddle Cowichan Bay.   Unless the weather is wrong for the bay and we will post another location here.

    Usual requirements - you must have taken the basic tandem canoe or introduction to sea-kayaking courses and carry all the Transport Canada required safety equipment. Although this is a short and coastline-hugging trip, everyone should have spare clothes in a drybag or waterproof container - you never know. Listen to the weather forecast and dress appropriately for the likely conditions.

    If you need to use a Club boat, please contact David Dorosz canoe@vckc.ca or Linda Hall at kayakbookings@vckc.ca. If you need a partner, we will try to find you one.

    Please let me know if you plan to take part by Thursday evening (Nov 16).
