Upcoming Trips
Arising out of the Provincial Health Officer’s order of February 10, 2021 there will be no Beaver Canoe Club Trips scheduled in March. An excerpt follows:

F. GROUP SPORT
1. A person may permit a place, other than a private residence or vacation accommodation, to be used for, or may provide, or may participate in group sport, if the following conditions are met:
a. if the group sport is indoors, only two persons participate;
b. if the group sport is outdoors, only four persons participate;
c. the participants maintain a distance of three metres from one another while engaged in the group sport, unless the participants reside in the same private residence;
I. EXERCISE
6. A person may…, or may participate in outdoor group exercise, if the following conditions are met:
a. the participants maintain a distance of 2 metres from other participants when exercising, and
b. the participants do not congregate with other participants either before or after exercising.
7. A person who participates in outdoor group exercise must a. maintain a distance of 2 metres from other participants, and
b. not congregate with other participants before or after exercising.
8. No person may permit a place to be used for, may provide or may participate in outdoor group exercise, unless the conditions in sections 6 or 7 are met.

The Beaver Executive’s discussion included  that the orders (1) eliminate the possibility of shuttles and (2) restrict numbers to 4 or less, which contravenes our safety rules for 3 canoes, under most circumstances, and just as importantly contravenes our policy of having trips open to as many members as wish to and are capable of participating.

The full and most recent Provincial Health Order may be found here.

There are no upcoming events at this time.
