Welland 2017

Welland – Nationals Day 2

After 2 days of k1 competitions we are all very proud of our teams results.

Alex Canning is having an exceptional regatta in U17 with a Gold medal win today in the 1000m K1 race. He took home  a silver medal yesterday in the 200m K1 and also a very impressive 4th place finish in the 6000m race. Ian Gaudet has also started out the week very well especially as a 14 year old racing in U16 and making finals in both his 200m and 1000m races with  4th and 8th place finishes respectively. Thomas Cox also made the 200m final today which meant all of the Banook team members racing today made it to their finals – which is a huge accomplishment for our club.

Tomorrow we start crew boats for both the men and women and have a very full day of races. Be sure to check out the live broadcast of the races on the CKC website. The commentators are doing a great job at covering each race from start to finish. Here is the link to the site:

The draw is also available on the CKC website.  The U17 mixed War Canoe will be one of the top races to watch and it is at 12:11 Halifax time so it doesn’t even interfere with your work day J.

Cheers,
Michael

Hello from Welland – Nationals Day 1

Tuesday Morning – August 22

Just a quick update from Welland, Ontario.

First I hope everyone is aware that despite many of the coaches competing here at the Nationals programs are still running at the club this week including kiddie canoe for our youngest athletes.

The trip with the boats was long 1900 km in 27 hrs which included a 3hr nap and a brisk walk in NB (ran out of gas 2km from a gas station).

Most have arrived at this point and we will have practice at 10:00 for everyone. The parents are all working well as the support team making sure the team is well fed and happy. Today the weather is looking a bit windy and the possibility of rain for ourh 4 K1 races but the rest of the week is looking better. 

 

Good luck to our athletes competing at the Nationals in Welland!

Banook is excited to be represented by such a strong group of paddlers at this year’s Canadian Sprint CanoeKayak Championships in Welland, Ontario.  We hope everyone has a personal best time during their races this week!

Banook Canoe Club

Just a reminder of placing your singlet order if you need one by tomorrow morning. If you plan on sharing one, this will not work well for crew boats if you are in the same boat and will not work for war canoe.

ADCKC/CKC regulations require those who are 11 years old as of January 1st, 2018 and older to wear a designated club singlet. You will need one for the U13/U15 Championships August 23-25. http://adckc.ca/Regattas/Regatta-Schedule/

All those UNDER 11 years old DO NOT need a Banook singlet but must wear a red t-shirt at regattas. If you are under 11 and still want one then please do order one.

For the next month while you wait for your singlet, please wear a red t-shirt to regattas if you do not have the singlet pictured below as we have permission from ADCKC. There are no exceptions at National events, you must wear one of these when racing.

Banook has a few of these, but I don’t think we have enough for everyone. This year we are not going to make a large expensive order and end up not having enough of the right size and many of the wrong sizes. We are asking you to go onto this google document link and enter your name, phone number and put a big “X” in the square matching the size of the singlet your child requires.

Please keep in mind it is NOT a requirement for U11’s to wear singlets, they can wear a red T-shirt on their competitions days. If you are under 11 and still want one then please do order one.

Prices: Youth $42 and Women/Men $44. Please make payments to the Banook office. It will take 4 weeks from the time we place the order.

We are in a bit of a time crunch for you to purchase one of these singlets and need you to enter this data by tomorrow, July 16th at 1200. After this we will assume you already have one or do not need one. If your athlete is unsure of what size they require then please see me or Tiaro in the office and they can try on the different sizes we do have tomorrow morning.

Coaches will be following up with the athletes on Monday to remind everyone to enter their information if a singlet is needed.

As always if you have any questions please come see me or Tiaro in the Banook Office or send us an email.

Thank you,

Stephen Pottie
General Manager
