TCOCC will not be practicing today due to poor air quality. Hopefully it clears up enough later in the week to go out. Whatever happens we will meet Wednesday to load canoes for the race this weekend. Please make it a priority to attend especially if you plan on racing.
Practice Will be cancelled today due to unhealthy air quality. Sorry for the late notice please make smart health decisions and go to the gym if you really need some activity.
Please be aware of the reduced Air quality this week and make healthy choices when it comes to outside activity. We are under an air quality alert through Wednesday, meaning that unhealthy to very unhealthy air conditions will persist. TCOCC will meet for practice as normally scheduled but we will evaluate conditions and personnel when deciding on a plan. If you have any sensitivity to cardiac or respiratory distress carefully consider whether or not to take part in outside activity.
Look at the links below for information on air quality and weather forecasting:
We've had a lot of change recently so this is to clear up any confusion about our current practice schedule:
Monday, Wednesday, Saturday practices are not changing they start at 5:45 P.M. and 8:15 A.M.
For our new practices we are requesting notice at least 24 hours in advance if you plan to paddle so seats can be worked out and we insure full canoes:
Friday practice is for those who want to work harder and be more competitive, it will consist of more difficult workouts to simulate race conditions. This starts at 5:45 P.M. Contact Tyler for a seat.
Sunday practice is for our wahine (women) to work on their blend and get a different feel from paddling with the usual mixed crew. This starts at 8:15 A.M. Contact Laura or Nessa for a seat
Aloha, Here's another reminder for the upcoming practice changes
Monday May 27th only: practice meets at 9:15 A.M.
Saturday June 2nd and all Saturdays afterwards: Practice starts at 8:15 A.M.
Have a fun holiday weekend and we'll see you on the water!
Saturday practice is the last chance for our shirt and paddle orders. Check your e-mail and talk to Lauren/Matt for more details.
Don't forget we're changing Saturday practice time to 9:00 A.M. for the rest of the season. Just a few more weeks to paddle before the wa'a have to go away for the winter!
Fall is here and the days are getting shorter. In order to keep our weekday practices in the light, we will be moving everything up 15 minutes. Meet up time is now 5:30, on the water by 5:45.
Due to the hazardous air quality practice will be cancelled on Wednesday. We want to be out on the water and keep everyone safe so these decisions will be day to day. Hoping for some improvement over the weekend and for those directly affected by these fires to stay safe.
Happy Labor Day Everyone! For The Holiday Weekend Saturday Practice will be at the usual time and Labor Day Monday practice will be moved to the Saturday time of 8:15 so that everyone who wants to paddle can enjoy their holiday afternoon.
Due to the PNW challenge there will be no practice on Saturday. Good luck to all of the paddlers participating. Its our last TCOCC race of the season and it should be a fun one!
For more information on the air quality issues we are experiencing right now here is the air quality map as of this morning and some links to further information. We are sitting in the "unhealthy" category meaning that even for healthy individuals strenuous outdoor exercise is not recommended. Our first priority is keeping everyone safe so please take it easy and hope this clears out Saturday.
Due to the dangerously unhealthy air quality coupled with the expected high temperatures, practice will be cancelled tonight. The Forecast shows air quality improving by Saturday so we will plan to be back on the water on our normal schedule at that point.
Due to Da Grind practice will be cancelled Saturday. We will resume normal schedule on Monday. Good Luck to all of those racing on Saturday!
Due to both members and wa'a being gone for the gorge race this weekend there will be no practice Saturday morning. Normal schedule will resume on Monday. Good luck to all the crews racing!
With the summer weather beginning we will be moving Saturday practice up to 8:15 to beat the heat. Set your alarm an hour earlier and we'll see you on the water!
Remember on Memorial Day we will practicing at 9:15 A.M. our weekend time so everyone can enjoy the holiday!
This upcoming Saturday, May 6th, we have paddlers going to the Race Around the Island near Portland. If you're planning to go and need some information, talk to Nessa or Steve.
Good luck! Bring home some hardware!
With most of our people and boats gone, we will have to cancel practice for Saturday. We will be back to our normal schedule on Monday, May 8th.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of experienced steersmen and experienced paddlers to run practice, we won't be meeting on Saturday. You still have Wednesday 04/19 to paddle and we'll be back at it on Monday too. In the mean time it will be a good day to cross train and make your plans for RATI on May 6th. We also wish all the paddlers going to Rusty Iron this weekend good luck!
Due to Weather, practice will be cancelled Wednesday 04/16. Forecast looks promising for Saturday, we'll be back on the water then.
