The Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club are opening the doors and inviting everyone to stop by for Toonie Try It Day on Saturday July 20.
This is an annual event for the club – we are inviting anyone interested in getting out on the water to stop by and try out our paddling equipment and take a spin in the dragon boat. This is a full day event with dragon boat demos at 10am, 11am and 12 noon and SUP’s, Canoes and Kayak demos every 35 minutes from 1pm to 3:30pm. The cost is $2 per demo and can be paid at the boathouse the day of the event. TRPC has a variety of PFD’s available for use from small children up to XL so all you need is appropriate clothing for the weather.
The goal of Toonie Try It Day is to introduce as many people as they can to these awesome water sports and have some fun with their fellow community members. Please register on Eventbrite, https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/toonie-try-it-day-tickets-65124301539?aff=affiliate1 , where you can book out a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, or spend some time in the dragon boat with the coaches. If you wish to try a canoe, you do not need to register on Eventbrite – all you need to do is bring a friend and a toonie to the clubhouse anytime between 1pm and 3:30pm.
Cold drinks and snacks will be available all day. The event has seen great success in the past and registration is strongly recommended in order to reserve the piece of equipment you want at a time that is convenient to you, but drop-ins are welcome and the volunteers will get you into the next available time slot. If you have questions you can email email@example.com
* Tickets on Eventbrite are free; however, for each ticket registered to you, $2 must be paid upon arrival at the boathouse on the day of the event.
**Must be over the age of 14 to participate in the dragon boat.
