Canoe Club Open House April 26 6:30-8:30pm

Please mark your calendar for Friday, April 26, 2024 and plan on joining us between 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM in Clark Hall, west end of the RA Centre, 2451 Riverside Drive, Ottawa. The club's annual Open House is open to members and non-members alike. The Open House is the best time to plan your paddling season and acquaint -- or reacquaint -- yourself with fellow paddlers you might not have seen since last fall. Check out the Flatwater, Whitewater and Family programs and the extensive lineup of Training courses scheduled for the upcoming season. Visit the boathouse, and check out the club’s collection of boats and equipment.

Again this year, we will have a used gear sale table – an opportunity for you to sell the gently-used gear you no longer need, and buy someone else’s! Just bring your gear to the Open House with your asking price clearly marked.

RA staff will be on hand at the Open House to process your registration for both membership and training.

Registration for the club’s training programs will be open at Open House – you’ll want to sign up quickly because they sell out quickly: they’re excellent quality at a bargain price.

Looking forward to seeing you there, and bring your friends!

Our annual gear swap is back!

If you have canoe or camping equipment to sell, bring it to the RACCC Open House on Friday, April 26th.

We welcome all kinds of canoe and camping equipment including outdoor clothing, paddles, boats, tents, camping furniture, tools, camp kitchen gear, tarps, shelters and sleeping bags.
