BCKC Christmas Social
Monday Dec 12th @ 6pm
at South Shore Centre
Our Christmas potluck gathering is a
great way to get to know other BCKC members and celebrate the season with fellow
outdoor enthusiasts. The potluck dinner starts at 6pm followed with fun
for kids and adults. This year, all gifts are for "donation only".

Do you enjoy getting out into
the Ontario wilderness, feasting on the
sights as you paddle our lakes and rivers? Sharing the experiences with
like-minded friends? Enjoying the exercise and dusting off everyday stress?
Arriving home feeling rejuvenated and energized? If YES, then this message
is for you!
BCKC is fortunate to have a dedicated group of Trip Leaders. But some of
us are getting older (thank you for not noticing). So let us be realistic, we
need a succession plan .... and that could involve YOU.
BCKC Trip Leaders are certified by ORCKA, Ontario Recreational Canoeing
and Kayaking Association, and the Club provides Liability Insurance for its
Leaders that are engaged in a Club activity.
I encourage you to go to www.orcka.ca to learn more about the process, or
speak to one of our Trip Leaders. And consider taking courses - it will
enhance your paddling experience and start your progression towards
certification - you too can be a proud BCKC Trip Leader one day: The Longest
Journey Starts With A Single Step.
Do you already keep a log of your trips? If not, I encourage you to do
so. It will be a reminder of fantastic places you have visited, how many
kilometers you have paddled, and how many wilderness nights you have enjoyed. It
will also make it easy to prove that you meet ORCKA requirements that
you have spent at least 25 nights of wilderness tripping, paddled at least 500
km, and at least one trip was 5 days or more.
