    SKABC will be looking at hosting Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Paddle once again tentatively on Saturday June 15th out at Deep Cove. It will run from 0900 to 1800h.

    This is a worthwhile cause. We need volunteer paddlers that can simply accompany the big & little ones who will be paddling doubles. There will be 3 shifts @ 0900h, 1200h, 1500h. You can volunteer for one shift, two shifts or all three shifts.

    If you can volunteer, please contact Calvin Sam 604.561.7629

    Thank you

    Calvin should also have told you that this is a fun day, and so rewarding to see the delight on the kids faces when a seal pops up, and the low tide group are amazed at the sea stars (which are returning!). Pizza and fruit are served to the matches when they return and there is plenty for volunteers too. skabc generously pays for the pizza and the rental of 4 double kayaks for the day. All you need to supply is your own boat and a good attitude.

    This has become an annual event and so popular that the organisations always have a wait list.
