    Now that we once again have our equipment stored next to the river... we hope to commence with biweekly river paddling sessions.  These will be easy sessions, mostly involving an upstream stretch of paddling (how the voyageurs got to Edmonton!) with a leisurely drift back down to the boathouses. 

    Club canoes and kayaks and related gear will be available for members to use.  We will have a volunteer member or two to help coordinate folk, and make sure everyone gets back safely and on time.  We are asking participants to register (no charge) so that we can control the group size and anticipate needs prior to everyone's arrival.  Members are welcome to bring their own boats and gear, and may choose to put in at the Laurier Park boat launch.  If requiring club gear please meet at the B V seacans at 6:45 PM.  If bringing your own gear plan to unload at 7:15 PM at the Laurier Park Boat launch.  By 7:30 PM we should all be heading upstream.

    Participants should have good flat water skills and some concept of ferrying and eddy turns on the river.

    Please come prepared for the expected weather, a possible swim, and fluids for refreshment... and best all in a dry bag.

    This will be our fourth evening "Liver on the River".  Not so much a paddle as an on river social, a drift, enhanced with fine pate, crackers, veggies and fruits, and legal refreshments!  We will try to organize a shuttle vehicle drop off prior to our 5:30 PM meeting at the Laurier Boat launch (if bringing your own boat) or at the Buena Vista Sea Cans (if needing club boat and gear).

    Club canoes and kayaks and related gear will be available for members to use.  We will have a volunteer member or two to help coordinate folk, and make sure everyone gets back safely and on time.  We are asking participants to register (no charge) so that we can control the group size and anticipate needs prior to everyone's arrival and organize the shuttle.  

    Please come prepared for the expected weather, a possible swim, and fluids for refreshment... and best all in a dry bag... this trip may require a cooler/a "chilly bin" and table/a bit of plywood for across your gunwales to lay your spread out on! 

    These are volunteer lead sessions and we do expect participants to have modestly good flatwater skills and some idea as to the river skills of eddy turns, and ferrying.

    Come join us for a weekend on the Kootenay Plains in the Cavalcade Meadows group site (site #8) for the 2021 Labor Day Weekend.  We are booked in, and camp fees for the three evenings will be $140 per camp unit/tent/rv/etc. Only register for one person... guests will be charged if you register them... Camp fee is per camp unit!

    Camping is rustic, well water, fire pits, usually clean toilets, and NO power!

    This is one of the prettiest spots in Alberta!   And there is paddling (big & small lakes and rivers in the area), day hikes in various directions (Siffleur Falls being the most popular), Mtn Biking and even a bit of scrambling can be found!  Our most popular paddling over the years has been the runs on the North Saskatchewan: above Saskatchewan Crossing (two portages), below 'the Crossing (no portages and some fun bits).   And in recent years we've made some forays onto Lake Abraham in the early morning or evening... it has reputation for day time wind.  And some years on the Monday we've done the run below the Bighorn Dam to the FTR (it can be a bit full of log jams) on the way home.

    For the Banff park runs we will have to be cognizant of the 48 hr dry time between water bodies.  I don't think this will affect us if we paddle three days in a row on the NSR.

    Until August 15 we'll only take folk intending to come for all three nights... If we do not fill most of the 20 available camp sites, we will open up registration for fewer nights.

    Contact Mark Lund <lundmer@gmail.com> for any questions about this trip, or late partial registration.
