Hello, I am new to Ottawa. I just moved here from Nova Scotia and I am in need of getting out and running something. Are people still running rivers? where to they go? and how does one hook up with them?
The boater board is a good place to start and you can also go to http://www.cdb-ottawa.co it’s a pretty cool club based in Ottawa. I have been Paddleing with them about a year and I met them on this board. If I can find someone to borrow a dry top from then I will be heading out this week. You can definitly come along.
Welcome to the board! Your timing is great. This weekend is Moose Fest – just a couple of hours south of Ottawa on the (you guessed it!) Moose river. It has sections for everyone, from easy to hairy. I imagine there are several carloads of folks headed down from Ottawa. You should be able to hook up with some folks here on the the board, or through Courier des Bois.
