Santa Claus Parade December 7th

The Kinsmen are again organizing the Peterborough Santa Claus Parade.  This year’s theme is: What is your favourite Fairy Tale?   If you would like to join us for the parade, please e-mail us at this address, or comment on our Parade announcement post on our  KWP Facebook Page.  We are currently seeking feedback from members on what fairy tale kayaking could look like,  for our submission for this year’s parade.  Thanks to Colleen and Terry for again being organizers for this.

Christmas Pool Party

This is a one-time drop-in pool session in Lindsay, as an Xmas pool party.  Kids 7 & under are free! We have rented both the large pool and the hot pool. Also we have use of the sauna.   A portion of the shallow area of large pool will be roped off for non-boaters. If you would like to bring a guest (to share your boat or just hangout), they can purchase at our website a $5 spot guest without a boat.  Paddlers bringing a boat can purchase $11 drop-in spot Paddler with a boat.   Anyone interested in going for a bite after, can join us at a local restaurant  (location and numbers to be decided closer to the date).

Lindsay Winter Pool Sessions

We are again booking pool sessions at the Lindsay Recreation Complex for this winter, over the period January to March.  The seven 90 minutes Saturday sessions can be purchased  on our website for $75 for the series: Lindsay Winter Pool Series. Weekly drop-in spots maybe available, but are not guaranteed.  An active club or WO membership is required, to maintain our insurance. (Renewals of KWP memberships for 2020 will be on sale later this Fall).
