    • I have the week before king of clubs free to paddle but not the week after. Want to go before??
    • Anyone interested in joining us?
  • A FB friend is selling these.
  • King of the Clubs 2016 is quickly approaching as you can see. http://captiongenerator....the-clubs-2016-kayaking For those that don't know about KOC it is a fun all abilities event that takes place on the Ottawa River on July 31st. KWP will be up there paddling Saturday, Sunday and Monday paddling and hanging out with our and other clubs. Organizers of KOC need to know roughly how many people from each club are attending ie food prep for Sunday night etc. PLEASE post on here by July 23rd as to whether you plan on attending KOC. INFO you need to know: KOC will be at River Run this year. Cost for camping is $15 per night per person, includes take out. If you pre call please use KOC registration number 106170. Or tell them you are with King of the Clubs. KWP usually camps in Northend of the Meadow. Know that this year KOC Organizers are trying to set up a central location for food and community campfire. Likely location will be center of Meadow (by the kiosk). If you don't want to be in the center of the fun please camp accordingly. As well please remember to leave space for Boat Toss! The "event" is free for WO members which you are if you area a KWP member. If you are not a KWP member you can join that weekend. You can also pay a day fee $10 for the WO insurance and event and paddle with KWP or another club. Food costs $5, in past KWP covered cost, not sure about this year, it will be posted prior to event. Special Note: Some of the KOC events have changed from pervious years, nothing set in stone yet but here's what you can look forward too. Advanced Boater Cross on McCoys (5 paddlers), Kayak Relay on the Lorne 8~9 paddlers), Cardboard Boat Race (1 paddler), Ball Game at Normans (4 paddlers), Intermediate Boater Cross, location TBD (5 paddlers), Tug of War (5 paddlers), Boat Toss Male and Female, Rope Toss (5 people). Plus there may be a new event or two. We need as many KWPer's at KOC this year to help u s win our first of many titles. KWP will need some "club organizers" to rally the troops, help lead paddlers down, etc, etc. Let Cale or Tony know if you are interested. More info on the weekend (KOC event and KWP weekend paddling) will be coming soon. Need info? Email
    • Looks like I'll be coming. Do I need to reserve a site?
    • Nope. Just show up and find a spot to camp.
    • I'll be there!
    • Tony and I. If no one wants to organize the people into events I would be willing.
    • I will be there. Not racing events.
    • We are planning on paddling on Friday. If anyone else plans on joining us, they should post so we don't leave without them.
    • Leanne and I are booked in at one of the river run chalets (we don't have a camper; my OMS and Leanne's princess status prevents us from camping ;) Wanting to paddle Friday too
    • Oh Dave! Leanne let us know that you're the princess not her HA HA
    • Your right. Need to buy a fancy caravan. When gypsy town arrives at river run, I will try and make a deal on a good used trailer.
    • I will be there Sunday for sure. Hoping to find a dog sitter so we can come up Friday instead.
  • Sooo...water is ok. A couple of logs out (at least tonight we will see what tomorrow brings). Regardless, since the water has been mediocre at best all summer I thought we would 'spice' up dinner a bit and get away from burgers. Pulled pork and corn on the cob tomorrow - so even if you don't want to come out for the paddle at least come for the food! See you tomorrow! So far it may be 3 ppl sharing a whole lot of pork.....mmmmmm!
    • Will be there. There is always the one handed hand roll working up to rolling with an open beer can trick to work on! Lol see ya tomorrow.
    • I'm there!
    • Who wouldn't want to come to paddle. Even if it is beyond insanity what I do.
    • I'll try to come out for the food :-)
    • Looks like I might have the scent of another kayak my size. If so, I might not be making today.
  • KOC Mexican potluck! For anyone who has not participated in KOC the winner of the previous year cooks supper for everyone in all of the clubs. I believe that is Sunday night after the KOC competitions. But KWP had a curry potluck at the Gatineau weekend and it was such a big success that I have had requests to repeat KOC weekend also. We will have the potluck on the other night (thinking Saturday night) . The potluck though has a theme. There was a lot of suggestions, BBQ, Bacon, favourite camp dinner but the hands down winner was Mexican. If you wish to participate simply bring a Mexican dish to share as a part of the potluck. We will organize a place likely the big white tent, and bring the tables together.
    • I will bring some tacos, tortillas and spiced meat (filler). please let me know how many people we are expecting.
    • Two for us.
  • Andy Convrey will be facilitating "Stop Thrashing", an Intermediate Solo Boat Course right here at Paddler Co-op. Andy is a phenomenal paddler, founder and crafter of Echo Paddles and instructor, don't miss your chance to partake! We are offering this 2 day course for the price of a 1 day private clinic for our members! *Not a current member? No problem, just sign up today for $10* Saturday, July 30th & Sunday, July 31st, 2016 Course Total =$200 + HST For more details or to register.. head to the website, Email or Phone 613-758-2772.
  • Thank you KWP members for including my son in your runs down river from Jessops this past weekend. Much appreciated.

  • Hey everyone, I've been trying to source Shred Ready full face helmets for a couple friends with little success! I'm in talks with Chris at AO Boatwerks about bringing in an order! It's possible more interest could reflect the price! Adventure Outfitters in Lakefield can no longer get them, same goes for MEC! I can't seem to find retailers in Ontario! If your interested in one just post here and I will continue talks with AO!
    • Interested
    • What's wrong with this province? Seems that a lot of gear including boats we have to cross boarders to get.
    • Interested
    • Link to the page!

    • A point for every person per club who can complete the roll.
    • You know your girls would win because they are freakishly flexible.... Good try Colleen Mycroft
    • Actually Lee Smith we have quite a few events requiring strength so this would just balance it out.
    • I'm feeling the love all the way down here in Guelph:) KOC trash talk has to start somewhere. Can't let the Carlton stack up their team and trash everyone again
    • I would be happy with just the hand roll and no beer....oh wait, I meant just the beer and no hand roll
