Notice of Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting will be taking place on November 21st at 7:00pm.
The meeting will be held at the Township of the North Shore council chambers in Algoma Mills.

Have you been thinking about getting more involved with the club? 
The executive committee has some open positions available! 

Come on out and hear what's been going on within the club this year, or find out how you can get involved.

Hope to see you there! 


Don't put away your paddling gear just yet!

Our end of season paddle & potluck is coming up on Saturday, October 19th in Algoma Mills/Blind River.

We will meet at Lorraine and Eric's place (contact trip leaders for address/directions) at 1:00 pm to drop off our potluck items, and then anyone interested in the paddle will head to the Algoma Mills beach where we will put in and paddle back to Lorraine's along the shore of Lake Huron - about a 6 km paddle. 
As its starting to get chilly, the paddle will be weather dependent, but the potluck will be a go either way. 

Contact trip leaders Marc (griffmsb@gmail.com) and/or Lauren (lauren.c.iles@gmail.com) to confirm your attendance and to get directions.

August 1 Paddle Night - Blind River - Updated with new photos

A gentle 7 km paddle on a calm Blind River amongst pickerel weed, lilies, wildlife (beaver) and many interesting shaped stumps.  The group departed from the MFN pow wow grounds arriving at high school boat launch.
A lone heron followed the group posing on the numerous stumps along the way. A persistent seagull entertained us diving in search of a snack. See pic of the group's favorite heart stump framed by purple pickerel weed and large roots stretching out into surrounding water.


Many thanks to our leader Ray Lipinski.  Eight people enjoyed a gentle paddle in a section of the Blind River. There were many beautiful tree roots/stumps sculpted by Mother Nature, heron, crane, tern, beavers, muskrat, and loads of yellow water lilies about to bloom. What a perfect evening paddle. - Jim, AP Member
