The Yukon Canoe and Kayak Club located in Whitehorse, Yukon was formed in 1961 by Don and Clare Graham as the Yukon Voyageur Club.  The name was later changed to the Yukon Canoe and Kayak Club to better reflect the varying paddling styles we do. The club is volunteer based.

 

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

 

Annual General Meeting - Nov 21st


It's that time of year again, our fiscal year ended August 31st, and the board will present our membership with reports on our activities, programs, and financials at the Whitehorse Public Library at 7pm on November 21st.  Do you want to help out your club? Come join the board!

In addition to the regular election of officers, there will also be two special resolutions for our membership to vote on this night. They are:

1) changing our fiscal year end to align with YG's year end of March 31st.  The reason for this is to make funding applications and expenditures easier to mesh with those of our funders.

2) to sell our flatwater assets to the new Flatwater Yukon society so they may continue to offer flatwater programming to youth, allowing YCKC to focus on recreational paddling and competitive slalom and whitewater disciplines. 

The motions themselves are below, along with the links to relevant documents.

Special Resolutions:

1)  Amendments to YCKC bylaws
a) Change section 7 (Annual General Meeting) from:

The Annual General Meeting shall be held in the month of September or October at which time new Officers and Directors are elected and the accounts reviewed.

to
 
The fiscal year shall be from April 1st of the given year to March 31st of the following year.

2) Resolution regarding transferring of flatwater assets.
 
Given that Flatwater Paddling Yukon Society (FPYS) was officially incorporated in December 2016 and is recognised by YG Sport and Recreation as the Flatwater Sport Governing Body for the territory, with the mandate to expand opportunities for flatwater paddling for Yukoners; be it resolved that Yukon Canoe and Kayak Club (YCKC) discontinue its Flatwater Sprint Racing program and that the club assets related to this program including gear and storage containers be transferred to the Flatwater Paddling Yukon Society according to the provisions included below:

a). YCKC and FPYS agree on the list of assets to be transferred (see Schedule A, attached)

b). YCKC relinquishes its lease on the Schwatka Lake Day Use Area and will provide written support of FPYS to assume this lease.

c). FPYS will transfer the sum of $5,000 (Five Thousand Dollars) to YCKC, payable in two installments of $2500 each. The first payment to be made by December 31, 2017 and the second by May 31 2018.  Assets remain the property of YCKC until the final payment is made, and any outstanding balances owed after May 31 2018 will accrue interest at 4% annual rate, accrued monthly.
 
 KAYAK POLO RETURNS!

 

Yukon Canoe and Kayak is looking forward to another season of kayak polo at the Canada Games Centre, starting October 13th.  Please be on deck at 7:30 so we can get the equipment set up and pick teams. All you need is a CGC wristband, but of course getting your YCKC membership is always a good idea. :)


We are so fortunate to have the Yukon River flowing through our city which offers varying levels of difficulty. This creates a perfect place to lead our Adult and Youth Programs (or just get away for a lunch-time paddle). We also organize day trips down the Takhini and Wheaton rivers and occasional trips down various other rivers. We also organize an annual whitewater rodeo as well as various downriver races.

During the winter we organise a kayak polo league, drop-in practice sessions, sea kayaking and rolling clinics.  Check out our new calendar for dates and descriptions.  Please subscribe to our YouTube Channel and add our Google+ page to your circles.

The club has a limited stock of boats and equipment available to members during club events.
