  • Waterfront Trail Cleanup

    Cass Park Dock

    Spring is here and it’s time to clean up a section of the waterfront trail that IDBC has adopted. More hands make light and efficient work. Bring work gloves, wear long sleeves, boots, and gardening tools. Join us to help beautify our beloved trail.

  • Saturday practice

    Docks behind the playground (which is behind the building that houses the rink) in Cass Park

    Please get to Cass Park around 8:45am to get your gear (life vest, paddle, seat pad, etc.), warm up, and load the boat. We want to leave the dock and be on the water by at 9am.

    Note: we practice rain or shine – unless there's a chance of thunder/lightning. Remember to dress appropriately!

    Your hands and lower arms will get wet. Paddling or biking gloves if you have them. Long sleeves that you can push up. Maybe a light fleece. A couple layers are good so you can take one off when you warm up from paddling. Your feet could get a little wet. Some people wear water sandals with wool socks, others just wear flip-flops! Some folks wear light quick dry hiking pants. Yoga pants are good too. Just no cotton!

    If it's warm: bring and wear sunscreen! Bring water and make sure you're properly hydrated.

    Please note/remember: you can not get on the boat unless you've completed a 2019 membership/waiver form (https://forms.gle/z3rdP875tJG9SQMz6).

    We welcome people who want to try paddling to come practice with us a few times without a commitment. For more than a few time there is a membership fee of $200 for the April to November season. Fees help to defray the cost of equipment, maintenance, storage, dock rentals, insurance liabilities and various programs related to our stated objectives.
