Summer Social

The time is right to get together and have some fun so come and join us for an afternoon of activities followed by food and drink at the Brittania Park Trolley Station. The club is providing a variety of mini outings, food and soft drinks. Organized activities will include:

  • Walk: Darrell Makarenko will lead an easy walk to, and around nearby Mud Lake, which typically has plenty of bird and other wildlife to observe. We will also be able to check out the view of the rapids on the Ottawa River. Depending on timing, we may also check out the lighted point at the Nepean sailing club. Plan to arrive at the Trolley Station at 2:45pm for a 3:00pm walking departure.
  • Bike Ride: Pauline Daling and Dick Stewart will lead the bike ride which will be about 40km long and follow bike paths and roads through Kanata. Please arrive at the Trolley Station at 1:15pm to be ready for a 1:30pm start.
  • Paddle: Phil Dawes will lead a paddle along the shores of the Ottawa River. We will paddle up to Andrew Haydon Park and maybe a little further. Please arrive at the Trolley Station area at 2:45pm with your kayak or canoe for a 3:00pm launch from Brittania Beach.

All activities will be scheduled to finish just before 5:00pm so that we can then gather together at the covered Trolley Station picnic area and enjoy eating, drinking and socializing. Note that the Trolley Station is not available to us before 5:00pm so you may wish to bring a lawn chair if you want to relax at the park before that.

The Club will provide pizza and soft drinks for everyone who attends but please feel free to bring your own food and drink if you want something different.

Please register and indicate which activity you are interested in. We need an idea of numbers so that we can order an appropriate amount of food.
