A reminder -- this season's pool sessions have begun.

The U. Vic. Kayak Club welcomes non-student community members, and several of us have taken advantage of this in recent years.  Join us Friday evenings, from 7:30 - 9:30 at the McKinnon Pool.  Membership (including pool time) is $35 per semester, or $60 for the full season  - or toss them a $5 drop-in fee.

Here's what it looks like through Edmond's lens:    https://youtu.be/rD92apRnxUs

Craig, Doug and Rick have been showing up regularly with OC-1s and C-1s, and we now have a small group of younger folks who have committed to taking an OC-1 playboat course/clinic in November -- possibly in conjunction with the VCKC's fall MW II course.

Additionally, for those on the mid-Island, V.I.U. in Nanaimo has scheduled monthly pool sessions for their outdoor rec. program, and they welcome community boaters to join them free of charge.  Lorne, Craig and Rick have been showing up regularly.   Fall dates are Sept. 28, Oct. 26, and Nov. 9, from 8:30 - 9:30, at the Beban Park Pool.

Mainlanders over for a visit are welcome to join us.  (Pool Friday evening, river trips Saturday and Sunday, and home on a late ferry.)

There will be no excuse for lack of, or sloppy, rolls this season!
