Upcoming Events in our Territory

Hi folks, well I am finally back in the office after putting some serious kilometers on the Subee between Chilliwack and Winnipeg (over 5,000!!!) AND generating some airmiles by flying to and from Whitehorse.

While there is absolutely no rest happening here we hope that many folks take the opportunity to check out a bunch of great events happening in our territory in June and July.

THIS weekend is the Puntledge River Kayaking Festival in Comox on Vancouver Island - rafting, whitewater kayaking and canoeing.  Our friends at Western Canoeing and Kayaking will be there so check out the Jackson Kayak demo boats with them.

Also on July 20th is the 4th Annual Callaghan Creek Race in Whistler, BC.  The Callaghan Creek Race is a 2 man team, timed race down the full length of Callaghan Creek.  This river is under serious threat of development so they need the local paddling communities support.  Get this event on your calendar now and learn more about the issues threatening this waterway.  Recent article in the Whistler Pique
