   Hi everyone, well some of you who will remain nameless asked for more endurance and i think i delivered today. we had a brand new paddler out to day as well as a couple almost new paddlers come and paddle. To these paddlers i say way to go and sorry at the same time. we started with a paddle half way to sasquatch park. we did front half, ( SIX ) paddlers and back half ( EIGHT ) paddlers several times. we also worked on pulsing every second stroke. first all together and then front half, back half.

25/05 :  Harrison Paddle Sports Club now has a new dock.

   Due to some unforeseen circumstances, the Harrison Paddle Sports Club will now be docked at Killers Cove Marina.

Please give Special Thanks to Jim at Killers Cove Marina for allowing us to dock at the Marina.
