Calgary Penguin race

This is the week! Saturday April 25th is the Calgary Penguin Race.

It looks like it might just hold up to its name and be cold. As this is the first Annual, this will be the one we look back at and say ‘Remember that first Penguin race and the weather we had’! With some luck the forecast will warm up as the week progresses, but regardless, make sure you are dressed appropriately.

Chili, fruit and hot chocolate, and a reusable cup will provided at a cost of $5.

Check for more updates. Feel free to pass this on to your friends and club members. This is a perfect paddling site for those paddlers who have just learned how to paddle this winter. Those of you who are retired slalom paddlers, this is a great opportunity to see if you can still do it. In the new short boats, you'll feel just as good as if you never left your 4m boat! Or perhaps you are a sprint paddler and think you can turn a boat, come give it a try. We'll have boats and equipment you can borrow.
