Paddlers looking for a new home

Exploring Lake Huron and adjacent waterways is a big focus of a popular group, but finding a permanent home for equipment is proving difficult.

The Algoma Paddlers Canoe and Kayaking Club, which has some 150 members, was founded back in 2006 and has offered opportunities to canoeists and paddlers to explore local waterways.

During that time period, it had stored its equipment including three 36-foot Montreal canoes on a property owned by the Town of Blind River.

But, the municipality needs the property, so they have taken it back and the club had to find a new facility.

They were able to find temporary storage in a barn in Sowerby until May.

However, there could be good news.

The two parties have a memorandum of understanding for the town to release some property on Lake Huron if the club can get a grant to cover expenses.

The group went to several communities looking for space, including the North Shore, Iron Bridge and Elliot Lake, but have not been successful.
