It will be like nothing 24th has ever done before!
Saturday June 4, 2016.
For our end-of-the-year event, the 24th Scouting Group is planning a short paddling adventure on the Grand River (in a shallow, calm part of the river) followed by a pot-luck and BBQ. There are 2 parts to the End of the Year Event:
- the Paddle portion is from 9:15- 12 noon
- BBQ portion is from 12:30ish – 2:30ish.
Please use the Register form below to sign-up for either or both parts of this event.
Those that are renting equipment:
Canoeing the Grand has a small parking lot and requires participants to carpool. Participants will meet Scouter Paul at the Moose Lodge (655 Wabanaki Dr.) by 9:15am. As soon as a vehicle has 4 or more people inside, it will travel to Canoeing the Grand (3734 King St E). All participants must check-in at Canoeing the Grand at 9:45am sharp for lifejacket and paddle-sizing. The shuttle leaves the outfitter at 10am.
Those that are bringing their own equipment:
Those who are bringing their own canoe, life jackets and paddles should meet Scouter Jen at the access point by 10am and be unloaded and out of the way before the shuttle arrives. We will meet at the M.R. Good Family Trailway parking lot at the end of Otterbein Rd. Follow Ottawa St. east as far as it goes. Jog north onto Keewatin, then east again onto Misty St. Near the end of Misty, you’ll go south on a dirt road until you get to the parking area with the M. R. Good Trailway sign.
We will receive paddling instructions at the access point, do a group photo together, and then travel down the river in small groups.
The Paddle will take about 1.5 hours. We should be back at the Outfitter by about 12 noon.
After our paddle we will have a potluck BBQ and advancement ceremony at
- Moose Lodge, 655 Wabanaki Dr. (See Map Below)
(At the back of the parking lot behind the Lodge)
Families that are joining us only for the BBQ should arrive at the Moose Lodge around 12:30.
Bring camp/lawn chairs if you want to sit down.
