    Our AGM is the end of one paddling year for the club, and the real start of the next paddling year.   We socialize, we have our annual reports, authorize a budget for the next year, approve auditors, and elect officers for the next year or two... and socialize some more.  Last year we initiated a club photo contest for our members, and attending members get to help select the winners!  We encourage club members to check out our executive duties, and if willing and available, volunteer to take on a role.  Please drop me (or any of the executive) a note if you want more info' or would like to "stand"  <president@ceyana.ca>.

    As with most of our indoor socials we encourage pot-luck desserts... please bring along something sweet to share, and your own mug for the drinks provided, and a plate or bowel and spoon to sample all the fine offerings.

    Peace River Brigade has posted an announcement here: http://voyageurbrigade.org/…/30/2020-peace-river-brigade-i…/

    Crew registration will commence in March, with initial registration by crew... individuals without a crew will be able to register in April. Ceyana of course has two big canoes and can support at least two crews. If you are interested in participating in the brigade July 6 to 14 or so, please drop <president@ceyana.ca> a brief note expressing your interest, your big canoe experience, and how you might contribute to crew leadership and crew support (transportation, group gear, etc.). WE NEED TO KNOW BY VERY EARLY MARCH IF WE HAVE INTEREST. At present costs are unknown but the organizing folk have committed to keeping the cost down. Once we know more about the brigade registration process and details like cost, and know we have committed club members we will take the next steps in organizing a Ceyana crew or two for this brigade.
