The Dogwood Canoe & Kayak
Club is a group of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities who
share a love of paddling, the outdoors and a respect for the
We paddle solo and tandem canoes and kayaks on flat water,
moving water, white water, oceans, estuaries, lakes, and
ponds. A number of our members sail canoes. Organized trips
are planned from March to November. In the winter months you
will find many of us skiing the hills or at the pool trying
to nail that roll.
While there are many planned club trips
there are also many more almost spur-of-the-moment outings
at the mercy of tides and weather. Check the Calendar page
to view the current list of trips and current contact information.

is with deep sadness and regret
that we announce the death of Jack
Wainwright (1933-2018). Jack was a long-time
member and past president of the DCC (active
1972-2002). He was on the leading edge of
the paddling sports organization under the
umbrella of the Recreational Canoeing
Association of BC in the mid 1970’s and was
granted a life-time membership for his
efforts. In 1994 he wrote “Canoe Trips
British Columbia”, a Canadian best-seller,
covering 95 day and wilderness canoe trips
in the province. A celebration of life will
be held 2pm Friday, February 23 at in the
club house at 14861 98 Ave. Surrey BC.
Our next meeting will be at 7:30 on
Wednesday April 25, 2018 at
the Wesburn Community Centre 4781

present the Good Fellow Award to a Dogwood member who has
helped throughout the past year to make our club stronger.
Ian Bailey will be discussing the Budget.
