If you’re a returning athlete, someone who wants physical exercise and a personal challenege in a gorgeous setting minutes from home, or someone who has noticed paddlers on the Credit and wonders what it’s all about, come by the Club for information on our Spring/Summer 2013 Programs.
Please check all of MCC’s programming for the 2013 season under the Programs drop-down tab. We are happy to offer the following ten programs to the community:
Summer Camp for kids (ages 7-13)
Atom/Peewee/Bantam Racing program (6-15)
Club Canoe/Kayak & War Canoe program (13-21)
Sprint High Performance (13 and up)
Masters Paddling (25+)
Canoe Polo (all ages)
Dragon Boat (all ages mix)
…And what a race!!
The MCC Home Regatta was a huge success for all who participated from around the division. All the Peewees, Bantams, Masters and evens some Atoms got the rust off and got to race for the first time. The weather held off and allowed the fun on the water to go undisturbed.
Congratulations to all and a huge THANK YOU from the Head Coach and Commodore to all that volunteered their Saturday to make the day what it was. And I forgot to mention; did anyone see the Open Men’s War Canoe at the end of the day!!?? What a race…!
If the metal detectors didn’t go haywire at Galeão Airport when Mississauga Canoe Club’s Katie Vincent left Rio de Janeiro on April 23rd, someone had better call a técnico. Rapidamente!
Katie, recently turned 16, came home from the Pan American Sprint Canoe championships in Rio with three golds and two bronzes for her efforts in the C1 and C2. Considering she was only entered in five races – and was among the youngest competitors – her medal count should have garnered salutes from the aiport guards.
Katie won gold in the Junior Women’s C1 500m, Senior Women’s C1 200m and Senior Women’s C1 5000m. Partnered with Florence L’Abbe from the Pointe Claire Canoe Club, Katie won bronze in the Open Women’s C2 500m and the Open Women’s C2 200m.
If that didn’t set off the buzzers at the airport, it sure ignited the whoop-whoops at Missy.
You have all heard that the Mississauga Canoe Club’s equipment director Tamás Buday Sr., and past Commodore and former coaching director Eric Smith are being inducted into the Mississauga Sports Hall of Fame.
Tickets are now available for the 38th Annual Mississauga Sports Dinner on June 7, 2012, at the Capital Banquet Centre at which Tamás and Eric will be inducted. Please click on the link to order your tickets to the dinner and ceremony so that we can show everyone Missy’s pride and thanks for their contributions to the Club and sport.
