We are raffling two Astral Green rescue PFD’s. One of the PFD’s will be won by a member who has purchased their 2019 (adult, youth or family) memberships by March 31st, 2019. Each of these new or renewing member’s names will be automatically included in the raffle for this PFD. The second Astral PFD, we are selling raffle tickets at $5 per ticket. These tickets can be purchased online at our club’s online store (click here to visit our store), where you can also purchase your memberships. (note you do not need to log-in to an account to purchase these).
Why are we doing this?
We are using the raffle of a really nice PFD as an incentive for members to purchase their 2019 memberships before paddling this Spring. This helps us in planning and managing trips, and maintaining club insurance coverage for all members and events. The tickets from the second PFD are being sold to help cover the costs of both PFD’s.
KWP board approved a policy for our club social media platforms, it can be viewed in our Forms and Documents page here.
Family Rate for 2019 Memberships
KWP is pleased to announce the introduction of a Family Rate starting with the 2019 membership year. The family rate is $80, and covers a family of up to 4, including a maximum of 2 adults. Additional children/youths over the maximum can join at the regular membership rate of $30. We hope this will encourage more of our members to get their kids involved and out to enjoy the rivers with them. As always, children/youth attending club paddles/events must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
2019 memberships are now effective January 1st to December 31st.
For members who purchased 2018 memberships prior to Labour Day, their 2018 membership will still be effective until March 31, 2019. 2018 memberships purchased after Labour Day, will be effective till December 31st, 2019. Everyone’s 2019 memberships will expire Dec. 31, 2019. Memberships can now be purchased Online! See the Store (Note: User Accounts are no longer necessary to purchase a membership)
