Dobre doshal! to Toshko!

Dobre doshal! to Toshko!

The day is finally here. We would like to welcome Coach Toshko Kalpakov to our Banook family.  Toshko has arrived via Scotland and will be familiarizing himself with our Banook programs, athletes and families over the next few weeks.
He was already even on the docks lending a hand first thing this morning in fact!

Make him feel welcome by introducing yourself and welcome him to Canada with a “Dobre doshal!” (welcome phrase in Bulgarian). His English is excellent in case you are wondering.

Our summer paddling programs will continue under the leadership of Jill, Angela, Jake, Jeremy, Will, Ryan, Sarah and Emma. We hope will progress forward with strong finishes through the remaining August regattas as Jill and Jake head our team at Nationals (25 Banookers strong) in Ottawa starting August  25.

Thank you
Your Banook Board

#FLASHBACK Friday!

Back on August 30th, 2016 I announced an $86,000 investment in four of our amazing paddling clubs through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. I'm happy to see this funding making a difference at the clubs in our community!

Senobe Aquatic Club:
$40,000 non-repayable contribution to Senobe Aquatic Club supported the installation of new windows and siding; replacing the facility’s roof; installing ventilation in the boat bays; and exterior painting on the boat bays and shed.

Banook Canoe Club:
$20,500 non-repayable contribution to Banook Canoe Club—one of the oldest paddling clubs in Canada—is helping preserve the organization’s historic clubhouse. The upgrades included: repairing and re-shingling the roof; replacing a retaining wall; fixing water damage; improving the wheelchair access ramp; and conducting exterior painting to the building.

Mic Mac AAC (real club account):
$20,250 non-repayable contribution allowed the Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Club to purchase and install an energy efficient heating system. The new system is expected to lower the Club’s overall operating costs.

Abenaki Aquatic Club:
$5,250 non-repayable contribution allowed the Abenaki Aquatic Club to make upgrades to its clubhouse including: replacing a beach wall; and making repairs to the grounds, walkways, and basketball bleachers.
