Rescues(aka Swims)?:


We had great weather. 11 boats (3 kayaks and 1 solo). NO swims. We did have to pay attention to channels, gravel bars, as we knew from the previous year it could be an issue to get split up. One member had a bite of peanut butter cookie from the Tim Hortons supply, and he is allergic to peanuts, but thankfully had no reaction. For this trip we turned one family away who had no experience (we recommended that they take a lesson). We also had a few members who were very familiar with the stretch which was fantastic. Everyone had fun and a bunch of photos were posted on the FB group after. As a great kick off to the season, it is inspiring members to plan more trips and sign up for more trips. We put our safety talk process into place again, and I added a alnd/river acknowledgement which I think it a great idea to do on trips (or at least to start the year off).
