CKC Summit - One Day No Fee

posted Nov 10, 2017, 7:12 AM by Heather MacIntosh   [ updated Nov 10, 2017, 1:46 PM ]

The CKC Summit is being held in Ottawa Nov 17-19. You may participate in the open events for one day without paying a fee. Saturday is the recommended day for clubs to participate. You will only be charged fees if you have lunch and dinner as part of the event, in which case on Saturday it is $80; dinner is at the Lone Star. If you would like to participate in the meals, please bring a cheque or cash as you will be asked to register. 

The full three days is $130 as there are several meals and events over the whole event such as alumni social, awards dinner, para session, officials session, and club development workshops. (Registration has now closed.)

We are very fortunate that this is located close by for many EOD clubs, as people in other divisions have to fly here to participate, so please try to take advantage of this learning and networking opportunity if you can. If you can't make it, ask someone else from your club to participate.

Also remember to pass your proxy onto someone else if you will not be able to attend. 

Event details and the link to the schedule are here:

EOD Logo Contest Announcement

posted Aug 22, 2017, 10:54 AM by Heather MacIntosh   [ updated Aug 22, 2017, 10:57 AM ]

EOD is pleased to announce that we have a new logo! This is part of creating a brand for EOD, which we’ve never had before. We need a way to easily recognize EOD athletes, officials, volunteers and materials, especially when we are competing as a division, such as at the Ontario Summer Games or hosting National or International events. The design may be used on shirts, hats, division championship medals, website and documents.

Earlier this year, EOD ran a logo design contest. The contest prize is a pair of TRX sunglasses with blue polarized lenses, featuring the CKC logo, from ZiZU Optics, a $169 value. Perfect for paddling and other sports. Check them out here. Thank you, ZIZU Optics!

The winning logo concept was submitted by Eliza Murphy from Sydenham Lake Canoe Club. Of course the creator of the winning logo gets bragging rights too.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a design, for your time, effort and patience.

Congratulations to Eliza! Here is the winning design:


Ontario Championships

posted Aug 16, 2017, 5:50 PM by Heather MacIntosh   [ updated Aug 17, 2017, 11:47 AM ]

This past weekend EOD hosted a successful Ontario Championships on Mooney's Bay. Thank you to all who participated! 

EOD clubs volunteered 800 dedicated hours of work this past weekend!! That was 200 half day volunteer shifts by Rideau, Carleton Place, Ottawa River, North Bay, Sydenham Lake, Gananoque and Petrie Island Canoe Clubs. The result was an extremely successful and safe Ontario Championship!! As Hector said (he gets credit for actually writing most of this email): We are so fortunate to have such generous support for our hard-working canoe-kayak athletes! Thank you to Rideau for hosting.

That said, there is always room for recognition and improvement. Don't forget to provide your input via the EOD feedback form. It's the only way we know what you are thinking.

The results are available in the Results section at left and at the OCSRA website.
