PROBUS Outdoors Club – paddling

July 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am

Yeah! With Ontario in Stage 3 of its COVID-19 recovery plan we’ll be getting our paddles wet again. We plan on paddling, weather permitting, every Thursday until well into September to make up for lost time.

  • Things will be a little different. We will still have the electronic RSVP system in place . This is for insurance purposes and now for the health department if needed.
  • No car pooling unless you are from the same household or social bubble.
  • We are starting earlier, and finishing earlier. We will do staggered entries and exits into the water to maintain our social distancing.
  • Please bring a mask with you, although I don’t expect we’ll need to use them. We will all continue to practice social distancing. Despite the new rules, we will have fun.
  • You can email our conveners at…
