  • Hi Kawartha paddlers! I am looking for a ride to the Gatfest this weekend, is there anyone who may be able to help me out? I live in Guelph (southwest). I can pay for gas and I would be very grateful. :) I prefer to leave on Friday, Thursday is a bit too early for me.
    • Please, anyone? :)
    • Guelph is the opposite way when travelling to Gatfest...from our a few hours. You might have better luck posting on the GKC site/page
  • Hi all. I will be at Gatfest with two demo Braaaps and two Werner paddles (Odachi and stikine). If anybody wants to demo some gear PM me!
  • Hey everyone, I've been trying to source Shred Ready full face helmets for a couple friends with little success! I'm in talks with Chris at AO Boatwerks about bringing in an order! It's possible more interest could reflect the price! Adventure Outfitters in Lakefield can no longer get them, same goes for MEC! I can't seem to find retailers in Ontario! If your interested in one just post here and I will continue talks with AO!
    • Interested
    • What's wrong with this province? Seems that a lot of gear including boats we have to cross boarders to get.
    • Interested
    • Link to the page!
    • Interested
    • I do need a full face. As long as the price is decent.
    • Interested price dependent!
    • Hey Kees van den Heuvel, have you tried ottawa paddle shack?
    • Any news on this?
    • Jari is interested. I may be.
    • Interested as well for all those runs upside-down I tend to do.
    • Did you talk to John at Wild Rock
    • Jari has a post on the website. Boatwerks has 8 at $199. If we put a bulk order in there will be a discount. How much I don't know. As far as I know jari and I will take one each. That leaves six if there's still 8 at boatwerks.
    • Jari is now out. He had a better offer😊
    • Is this option still available, I need two helmets?
    • Boatwerks in minden has a couple left. I don't think they all got picked up on the weekend.
    • Hi all, We still have some of these helmets left, so let me know if you want them, or just come by the shop in Minden. Also feel free to let me know what else you want. I am starting my 2017 purchasing and want to hear from the paddling community about what they are interested in. 705-286-1492
  • Gear orders are due. We have been given an extension by Ricarts as we don't have many orders yet. If we don't get minimums we can't order. If you haven't ordered and want to, get on it. If you see anyone in the club over the next 3 days pls mention/bring up the gear - even if you aren't getting gear. Some ppl don't check Facebook or website too often and we have only given a little over a week to make a decision. Every event I hear how everyone wants new gear, better hoodies.....well we are offering that now. Pls pass the word. If anyone has any questions don't hesitate to ask me!
  • I'm going to the Ottawa this weekend. Colleen is doing a chicks' kayak session so I'll be paddling on my own. Anyone interested in going?
    • Already there and waiting for friends!
