Have you ever wanted to try paddle boarding? Here's your chance! Already a pro? Come along and enjoy the calm of the evening on Thetis Lake! Yes, it must be calm; if the forecast is for wind over 15 kmh this event will be cancelled.
Paddle board rental ($40 or perhaps a group rate if we get enough people) right at the lake. Includes board, paddle, life vest, and even a waterproof bag should you feel unable to leave your phone! Instruction is FREE, but really there's nothing to it ........... expect to get wet and have fun!
Sign up soon to ensure a spot, and a board! If you are bringing your own board please message me so I know.
Please come to the main beach good and early to get the most out of our two hours, we must be back at the beach by 8, so I suggest coming around 5.30. Wet suits are optional but a long-sleeved shirt over a swimsuit is good for sun and wind protection. If you have water shoes, they are a good idea too, and so is a ball cap, and a towel.
Please be aware that this is a Victoria Club Tread event and our rules apply. You can read our Application Form and Event Liability Waiver, which are on the website at www.clubtread.org; click on VCT, and documents; and which provide a good idea of our expectations for event participants and coordinators. Event leaders are volunteers and may not have first aid or survival training.
Even as a paid-up member, you will be required to sign our waiver and release that we have all participants sign at Club events, and on which you must supply a current emergency contact phone number.
