Pirates on the Grand!

The 433rd Venturers first outing of the season was a one night camp and canoe outing on the Grand River. Provisioned by Grand Experiences, we embarked on a leisurely 24 km trip known as the Tuscarora run from Glen Morris to Paris and finally to the Brant Conservation Area.

On route, the company honored International Talk Like A Pirate Day (arrr, avast, and shiver me timbers too), guarded a wedding site (no plunderin lads) for our good turn, and enjoyed snacks, lunch, and awesome comradeship.

Awards could have been handed out for the following:
  • Most outrageous boasting
  • Best self-extraction from a grounding
  • Best pirouette in a swift
  • Greatest distance paddled backwards
  • Backwards traverse of a swift
  • Least likely to drown on dry land
A grand time was had by all.
