Air Quality Alert

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.

Practice Clarifications

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

Air Quality Information

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.

Practice Cancelled Saturday 04/22

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!
