HACS has been the Ontario Kayak Fishing series charity for the past several years. Previously there has been a one day tourney for the children coping with cancer. Two years ago the organization that had been running it decided to cease the event. As you can imagine, this was very disappointing for both the children and their families.
We did some scrambling last year to try and pick it up for them, but it was too late in the year to make it happen.
This year with the generous help of the Belwood Lake Conservation Area, we have put together enough resources to make it happen. We have use of the stocked pond rather than host it on the lake. I am also securing the Hampton Barn http://www.grandriver.ca/parks/hamptonbarn.htm as the host facility.
HACS is a foundation that thru donations from folks like yourself, enables children being treated for cancer, to have opportunities for them and their families to have fun and smile.
So, I am asking that any of you who have some time on Saturday May 10th to drop in and assist with making this a great event for the kids. The event will run from 9am-1pm.
It also happens to be the opener of pike season, so bring your yak and take a few casts in the lake.
More details to follow.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Take the time to read and understand ALL the rules that apply to operating human powered watercraft in Canada. It will probably one day save you some money from being fined, but may well save your life too!
