Spring is just round the corner. Our beautiful river is waiting for us to return to enjoy happy hours rowing. The Creston Valley Ospreys Rowing Club invites you to join them for the coming season, and will be hosting a registration event at the Creston and District Community Complex from 5-7 p.m. on March 30.

The Kootenay River offers a perfect opportunity for recreational rowing, perhaps the best in Canada. This is rowing for the whole community. It includes people of all ages and a wide range of goals:

•to get fit (or fitter);

•to develop or improve their technique in the boat;

•to be part of a team or group enjoying themselves and good company; and

•to enjoy active recreation in a beautiful outdoors setting.

The club has purchased a new recreational double for the coming season. This is a safe, stable, comfortable, easy-to-row boat that takes away any anxiety about falling in, yet still glides swiftly over the water, the perfect combination for a community rowing club. The club also has a stable of other boats, from training singles to four- and eight-person boats. It offers learn-to-row programs for beginners and a free introductory program.
