Ceyana Canoe Club
We can't paddle all the time. Here's our dry-land events.
Lois and I are offering a chance for a couple of early morning trips to some local lakes near (roughly 1 hr driving) Edmonton that we've not had club trips on in some years. Likely Battle and Coal lakes, but this is weather dependant. We have yet to decide which two days on the weekend we are likely to go where... again weather, and other events dependent. For each day plan on being out of Edmonton by 8:00 AM. We'd like to arrive early to beat the crowds, likely less wind, and better birding! Do plan to dress for expected weather, and bring a lunch you can eat in a canoe "tied up to a weed!" If you'd like to join us for one or both days please register on this site. We will be using e-mail to pass on updates, and finalize each days arrangements.

Club equipment and boats may be available; send our Properties Chair a note/request <email@example.com>

Pembina River paddling May 24-26
A fine morning to celebrate our fathers of our canoe club and families. We paddle, we brunch we have a grand time.
Trip Leader Tim is suggesting: "...everyone bring their own brunch. We can enjoy it in a wide circle in the picnic area!"
for more information please email Tim <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Buffalo, warm sun, gentle breezes (most years), an hour or two cruise around the islands of Astotin Lake (Elk Island National Park) or Islet Lake (alternate), birding, laughing and telling lies. Trip lead Tim, is suggesting he will provide cake, hopefully homemade... maybe store bought cup cakes like last year... maybe we'll be able to bring our own too.
Tim is suggesting:
Basic flatwater skills required. Limited Club equipment may be available, check closer to the event date.
