2020 Rates for Car Pooling on Club Trips

Transportation Costs should be shared by all participants, DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS, on all club trips. Drivers are free to charge whatever rate they feel is reasonable. However, to avoid any inequities between participants in different cars, especially on long distance trips, it is recommended that the group as a whole agree on an acceptable rate before the trip begins. RACCC suggested rates are:

• 30¢ per kilometre when carrying one canoe; or

• 40¢ per kilometre when carrying two or more canoes.

Cost per car = rate x driving distance roundtrip

Total cost = sum of costs per car

Cost per person = total cost / the number of participants (DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS)

Drivers should protect themselves by ensuring that their insurance coverage permits the carrying of passengers who share in the cost of transportation.

Your executive needs you! 

We Need YouWould you like to help shape the direction of our club? Do you enjoy working with people who are passionate about paddling? Then we have the opportunity for you.

Our club’s executive is made up of a dozen people who work together to run our club. This year several of our executive members are leaving the executive – but not the club. This year the co‑ordinators of the Outreach, Family, Finance, Communications, Training, and Social programs are stepping down. In addition, the Secretary and Vice chair positions remain vacant. In my case, I really enjoy my work on the executive and am willing to stay on as the chairperson., however, it would be healthier for the club for a new person to take on the job. This is because new people bring new ideas and energies.

Executive members do not have to do all of the work themselves. Instead, our main task is to recruit volunteers and organize their activities. The club is also willing to look at creative ways to staff positions. For example, the flat water committee has two people sharing the co‑ordinator position. This allows them to have an experienced person and a new person being mentored. This model could be used for other positions. If you think that you would be interested in the chairperson’s position but want to warm up to it, consider volunteering for the vice chair position.

Summaries of the duties of each of the positons are listed below, or you can contact any member of the executive for more information.

If you would like to put your name forward for any of the positions, please contact Mark Scott at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

RACCC Executive

Did you have an awesome summer of paddling? Did you know that the trips, training and events happen because of a dedicated group of volunteers who work through the winter to ensure that the next paddling season is a success. As with every year, we encourage all positions on the Executive to be up for competition, but this year many Executive members will not be seeking re-election (many having put in many years and seeing the benefits of new ideas coming on).
