OCSRA's Winter OCup 2 - Ski Race Results

posted Feb 14, 2018, 7:19 PM by Heather MacIntosh   [ updated Feb 14, 2018, 7:20 PM ]

On Feb 4, 65 participants completed in OCSRA's Winter OCup 2 - Ski Race in Gatineau Park, QC.  Lots of fresh snow made it difficult 
for the competitors who competed in a 7km loop, 14km loop or the 22km loop.  

Congratulations to Rideau Canoe Club for winning the event.  Carleton Place came third and Ottawa River came in sixth.

The results can be found on the OCSRA website here: 

Thanks go to the event sponsor Steve Tuttle and Kunstadt Sports (Kanata & Ottawa locations) who provided gear, prizes and race numbers.

EOD Treasurer Needed

posted Feb 5, 2018, 7:11 PM by Heather MacIntosh   [ updated Feb 21, 2018, 1:36 PM ]

Are you good with numbers? Then we need you!

EOD needs a new Treasurer to start in March or April before the 2018 regatta season. Our current Treasurer is relocating; he will still be around for a few months to train you and help during the transition.

EOD provides leadership and support to build strong paddle sport clubs in Eastern Ontario. We have fun while serving our mission, which you can read here. The Treasurer is a voting member of the EOD Board of Directors. This is a volunteer position.

The responsibilities are very straight forward:

  • Keep a budget for the season, currently done in Excel
  • Send out and collect invoices that have been sent to us from CKC, CKO and OCSRA
  • Participate in monthly Board meetings via conference call
  • Issue cheques or send etransfers to pay for invoices or expense claims that are submitted to the EOD; we use online banking so depositing cheques is done online and is extremely easy. 
The fiscal year runs from October to September. We are in good financial shape for the upcoming regatta season.

If you are interested in volunteering for the position, please contact Heather MacIntosh, EOD Flag Officer at heathermacintosh100(at)gmail(dot)com.
