A free picnic lunch will be provided for all paddlers in Ostler Park after the event

Its time to register for the sixth  annual Discovery Passage Passage (DPP) which will be held on Aug. 25.

You may do so by phone at 250-923-8482   or visiting the DPP website. Invite  your friends.

Whats new for this year? The launch is at the same place – the ramp behind the Centre for Aquatic Health Sciences (871 Island Highway) . You should plan to arrive about 11:15 a.m. You must be in  your boat,  on the water, ready to go at noon, Saturday, Aug. 25.

You should be able to stay at Cape Mudge Village about 45 minutes this year rather than the usual 25-30 minutes.

A free  picnic lunch will be provided for all paddlers in Ostler Park after the event. You might want to bring  a folding chair. Questions? Call Geoff at 250-923-8482.
