This is the year of the Rideau Canoe Club. Sometime in the late summer, the region's top flatwater canoe/kayak club will unveil its new three-level clubhouse.

The club also will have some significant new training equipment as a result of CanoeKayak Canada winning the 2010 Mark Lowry Memorial Sport Excellence Fund. The Ottawa-based national sports organization will work with Rideau to purchase equipment to boost national team initiatives.

"The Rideau Canoe Club is thrilled to receive this very generous contribution," said Rideau commodore Hector Carranco.

Meanwhile, Graeme Lind, an enthusiastic and committed Rideau coach, was named coach of the month for May by the Coaches Association of Ontario.
