Bridges 2016 “A Great Success”

BRIDGES 2016, “A Great Success”

Firstly, we wish to thank all those participants who came to our club to enjoy this 17th running of the annual Bridges race. We love watching the good will and enjoyment everyone wears on their faces at this race!

We are proud of everyone in our club for stepping up to make things happen! A comment was made that “Each year it runs smoother and smoother,” and this is because of you! Bridges was a huge success this year once again.

Special thanks to Lise for her master coordinating skills with registrations and taking on the job of race result entry; Cindy Wright for her fabulous prizes; Jason as safety coordinator; Kerry for organizing the door prizes; Robin for the tunes and announcements; and Glenys for coordinating the 50/50 and the very successful paddle raffle! The volunteer efforts by everyone on Saturday and Sunday were fabulous.

Its important to note the skillful efforts of those taking care of the timing, dock duty and registrations. And thanks to Julie as OC6 race organizer, Lise as the Inny & Outty Race organizer and all those who made these happen.
See you all next year!

ORPC Cleans Up

ORPC Cleans Up
There was some major clean up going on at ORPC on the weekend.  Lots of scraping, scrubbing, washing, polishing, sawing, drilling, hammering, sorting,  re-sorting occurring.  It was a long day but long days spent in good company feel pretty good.  Thanks to the many ORPC paddlers who came down to help. Our facility looks pretty tidy right now.  But that’s not all!!!

Huli Practice

Huli practices were held on the Gorge waterway this past weekend. An excellent performance by all, especially noting it was a first time for many.
