    This intro' solo river canoeing program is for those with basic flatwater  solo skills.  This course will teach the flat water and moving water skills for paddling solo canoes on easy moving water.   The program will start at the Hermitage Park Ponds in east central Edmonton for the first morning and the afternoon on the river in Edmonton and then spend one day on a local easy river.  All equipment will/can be supplied.  Participants do need to bring a towel and change of clothes, swims do happen occasionally!  Rain gear should be brought... only thunder storms chase us off the water.  For canoeing a pair of knee pads are helpful, and paddlers are encouraged to bring along their own paddle and lifejacket.  For the day long river session paddlers will car pool, and will need to bring lunch.  For the river sessions paddlers should have at least good raingear, and a partial wet or drysuit would be ideal, and a helmet (available from CCC).

    This program runs: July 18, at Hermitage Park Ponds, and the North Saskatchewan River 

    July 19 on a river close to Edmonton, the Pembina

    Buffalo, warm sun, gentle breezes (most years), an hour or two cruise around the islands of Astotin Lake (Elk Island National Park), birding, laughing and telling lies.   Trip lead Tim, is suggesting he will still provide, but it will be store bought cupcakes this year... and hopefully only this year.

    Tim is suggesting:

    • 10 am meet, at the main Astotin Beach/Main Parking Lot
    • 10:30 am launch,
    • cake about 12:30 pm back on the beach at whatever table/shelter we can snag!

    Basic flatwater skills required.  Limited Club equipment may be available, check closer to the event date.

    Learn some rescue skills to make your river paddling less stressful. We will cover basic canoe rescue skills on flatwater, then take what we've  learned to the river to practice there. Some skills covered will be t-rescues, parallel rescues, clip and tow, and self rescue. This is for those who want to brush up and refresh some of their skills or for those who have never learned them, and can be either tandem or solo paddlers. 

    Be prepared to swim so bringing a change of clothes and having wet suits, or partial dry suits would be good. Participants are encouraged to use their own canoes and gear (paddles, lifejackets, throw-bags, etc) or the club can also supply all the necessary gear. Pack a lunch and snacks as this will be a full day.

    This is one of the most scenic paddles, and maybe the best way to see the Bow Valley.   The plan will be to do day trips, with camping at Two Jack Lake Main campground loop 24 and adjoining.  Intermediate river skills are required, as the river all the way to Red Earth creek is fast, with fun riffles and significant rapids just east of Lake Louise, and at Red Earth Creek.  And for those a little newer to paddling there is easy paddling upstream of Banff into Vermillion lakes, and the other lakes in the area.

     The Kootenay River below the National Park is often referred to as the weekend Nahanni.  It is a great tripping river, and requires good intermediate river skills... and river reading skills.  This late summer or fall trip will be a lower water levels and thus not too intimidating for those familiar with the Horburg/Devil's Elbow run on the North Saskatchewan, or the upper Red Deer.
