The only time any of its ap- proximately 20 members ever see a canoe on the river or rapids is when they are actual- ly skimming over the surface or fighting in the boiling waters of rapids. There are no pictures to look at or experienced persons to come and speak to the group. Members get out and learn through experience and many times it is the hard way. 'Pull over and dump that canoe." is afamiliar shout after a rough set of rapids. Adult supervisors for the youth club are Dave Graham, Jack Taylor and Wendel Mills.

Highlight of the year's activ- ity will be a 10 day canoe trip departing this weekend through Bowron Lakes, 90 miles south east of Prince George, B.C. It starts with two portages total- ling nearly three and one half miles and followed by hard lake paddling. "None of this discourages the members and they turn out reg- ularly on Sundays and occa- sionally week nights for s h o r t trips on the Oldman River and St. Mary's River, or even Hen- derson' and Park Lake to lake practice. Besides privately owned ca- noes, the club uses four ca- noes owned by the YM which had been for the Camp Inuspi operations. Although the canoes had to be recanvassed and re. paired, they are now in tip-top shape for the canoeing season. A winter project of the mem- bers was to make own paddles, but quite a few have not finished. However since two canoes tipped a few weeks ago in a trip and five paddles were lost, they will now have to get busy. Members of the club say that every time they go down the same stretch of river it has changed.

Or the island where they ate lunch on a previous trip may now have disappeared completely. During one trip as members sat eating lunch on a sand is- land, the river was still rising from the rain. Within half an hour, two of the canoes nearly floated off although they had been beached sufficiently. There is a quick moment of decision when approaching a fork in the river: They must decide which fork to take de- pending on fast or slow-moving water and then manoeuvre all the canoes in the same direc- tion. One anxious moment oc- curred when a collision caused all the canoes but one to take the right fork. The lone canoe hit fast water while the rest dragged over slow water. After a long while the split forces joined amid fun filled shouts of: "You cut us off." "No, you were drifting back." "I doubt it, we had to wait for you." Then too there is the occa- sional collision, misdirection, water rilled canoe or ill pas- senger that brings out the spirit of fun and laughs in the club. The variety of canoes also makes a difference in paddling. A racing canoe which tends to speed ahead may have to wan- der all over the river out of the fast water in order to stay with the rest. The larger canoes have to be paddled steadily to keep up. The time varies with manpower, size of the paddles or interesting sites on the bank. If you are ever near a river in southern Alberta and a pack of canoes comes at you with paddles waving, it is most like- ly the Voyageurs oft on another conditioning exercise.
