EWP 50th Anniversary Tour of Edmonton Paddle

Events

Sept 2, 2023

Welcome to our celebration of 50 years of paddling! This is a paddling tour that will take us through the heart of Edmonton from Buena Vista Park to Capilano Park. The paddle should take about 2-3 hours. Some comfort on moving water is required, but there are no rapids on this section of water. An up to date EWP membership is required for any use of club equipment. As far as the use of equipment, there likely will be a variety of boats used. The logistics of getting boats to the departure site and trying to match individuals to the required equipment will need some advance planning. If you are interested in attending, please reach out to the club email below in advance of Aug 30th, 2023 to try and sort out the necessary gear.
