Gung Haggis paddlers agreed to cancel Sunday's practice for July 22nd.
people would still like to do something… such as paddle canoes… or
watch a movie, or rollerblade or go for lunch…. – I will be there.

We raced today July 21st at the Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Races, at beautiful Harrison Lake, set beside the town of Harrison Hot Springs. Everybody had lots of fun. Good cameraderie all around. Lots of compliments from team paddlers, and other teams.
We are very tired from a very long day at Harrison.
