Franklin Challenge ~ cancellation

With big gatherings unlikely by the end of June due to Covid 19 restrictions – we’ve made the unfortunate decision to cancel the Franklin Challenge this year, with hopes of running it in 2021.  Take care  Tim, Kathy, Kathleen and the rest of the Squall team.

DATE: Saturday, June 20, 2020 (no same-day registration)

WHERE: Snug Harbour

WHAT IS IT?

White Squall is hosting a paddling fundraiser for Franklin Island and Area Clean-Up & Conservation ~ partnering with the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (GBBR).  Join our efforts & have an amazingly fun paddle with kindred spirits. Choose a 20 km route around Franklin Island or a shorter 5-8 km route.

PLAN FOR THE DAY:

  • 7 – 8 am – Check-in at Gilly’s Snug Harbour, unload boat at dock
  • 8 am – Group meet-up at the beach
  • 8:30 am- Group start
  • Upon completion ~ be sure to check-in at the dock
  • 2:30 pm- Wrap up @ Gilly’s

This is a Fun Day of Paddling – NOT a Race Folks
