SUP Events and River Clean Ups - it's a busy September!

I won't lie, I am looking forward to Winter :)

The fall is a busy time for Nikki Rekman Sales, wrapping up road travels, end of season events, helping prepare our dealers for the 2014 season and the BC Rivers Day River Clean Up!

This weekend we are stoked to support local dealer and SUP Community leader, Deep Cove Canoe and Kayak Centre at the Board the Fjord SUP Race.  Please come out and visit the Werner Paddles tent, see what's new for 2014 and better yet demo our paddles.

 On Sunday September 29th it is BC Rivers Day/World Rivers Day and I encourage all of you to get involved in activities in your community.  If you live in the lower mainland of BC please come out to Chilliwack and support the Chilliwack Vedder River Clean Up Society.  Nikki Rekman Sales (I'm on the board of directors) will be there lending a hand and we hope you will join us.  We are actually looking for some extra volunteers to help with set up and clean up so if that's you please contact me.  Many generous businesses have donated prizes for the day so maybe you will be a lucky winner.

Meet at the Chilliwack Fish and Games Club House (48685 Chilliwack Lake Road). Registration begins at 8:30am. The river clean-up will take place from 9:30am to Noon, followed by a volunteer appreciation BBQ, entertainment and draw prizes.

Thanks to all these amazing businesses who have donated thus far.  Please visit their businesses and say thanks!
