Open call to paddlers

Harrison Lake home to many paddling groups, open to new members

The Crusaders Dragonboat team and the Harrison Paddle Sports Club are

busy recruiting for their upcoming 2014 dragon boat season. The group dragon boats and outriggers on picturesque Harrison Lake. They are inviting everyone out for a few free paddle sessions, with no commitment needed. There is a low cost for adults to join, if they like it, and it’s free for juniors to join. Equipment is supplied for both adults and juniors.

The junior dragon boating program is a fun way to stay active, and weekly practices are held on Saturdays.

Teens can join in the camaraderie, challenge themselves in practices, and enter in team competitions.

The Crusaders is also putting out a personal invitation to the people of Agassiz, Harrison and Rosedale

to come out and experience the sport of outrigger paddling. This is a 44 ft Hawaiian canoe which glides

through water with very little effort and is a great way to cross train and exercise. Call and book

your seat for a new adventure. Check out www.harrisonpaddlesportsclub.com
