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.
