Fall Fun Paddle // 2022 Season Recap

Fall Fun Paddle

We would like to invite all of our club members, including our friends with Barrie’s Ribbons of Hope and Corporate Recess to join us for our Fall Fun Paddle on Monday September 26th, at 6pm.

We will be splitting up into teams, and paddle our way to Johnson’s Beach and back. After our paddle, we will be heading over to Donaleigh’s (to be confirmed) for a celebratory drink and will announce our club’s Team of the Year Award. We hope to see as many of you as possible – please RSVP at our Facebook event page.

2022 Season

After taking two years off due to Covid, we were very excited to see our members back on the water for the 2022 season. 

We were able to put together three teams this year: That’s What She Said, the Barrie Northmen, and the Mixed Barrie’s which was made up of paddlers from each of our men’s and women’s teams. 

Mixed Barrie’s (mixed division) – Gold medal in Guelph, and Silver in Barrie. They have one more race to go at Christie Lake!
That’s What She Said (women’s division) – Gold medal in Port Perry
Barrie Northmen (open division) – Bronze medal in Hamilton

Help Wanted

Our Annual General Meeting is held in January of each year, but we thought we would get ahead and put out a call early for your help. We have a number of open positions on our Board and are looking to reinvigorate and expand the club. We can’t do this without the support of our dedicated volunteers! 

If you are interested in helping out in any capacity, whether it be fundraising, marketing & social media, or event planning, please reach out to us and let us know.
