As you all know, the WCA has suspended all in-person outings scheduled for 2020 & 2021, taking into account evolving public guidance on risks of COVID-19 transmission between individuals from different households, and the unavailability of insurance coverage for the benefit of members and the organization covering liability for COVID-19 infection.
The Covid-19 lockdown has introduced one benefit with the introduction of virtual WCA Zoom presentations and workshops. We’ve had participants from Canada, US, and Europe joining us in those online sessions. Check out the WCA YouTube Channel for past presentations: Wilderness Canoe Association – YouTube
Our Monthly Roundup Newsletter had, hopefully, kept you engaged with the club’s virtual activities. Check out Monthly Roundups | Wilderness Canoe Association
Some club members organized private trips for fully vaccinated family and friends during the summer of 2021. All reports indicate the trips were successful.
With the gradual increase of fully vaccinated people and the easing of some Covid-19 government restrictions, and continuing reduction in Covid 19 cases, the WCA board has voted to re-start in-person events as of Jan 1, 2022. To safely launch these in-person events, all participants will be required to;
Be fully vaccinated.
Follow club and Covid-19 guidelines/checklist.
Sign off on an event Release of Liability and Waiver of Claims form.
The WCA guidelines can be found on our website under Participant Resources | Wilderness Canoe Association and Organizer Resources | Wilderness Canoe Association pages
Moving forward, we will closely monitor health and government guidance and this decision is of course subject to change per circumstances.
