The Fort Langley Canoe Club's docks that rest on the Fraser River are about to get a lot bigger, visitors to the FLCC Annual General Meeting learned this week.
Keen paddlers with the FLCC crowded into the Fort Langley Community Hall on Feb. 18 for the club's AGM.
Amongst typical AGM business was the election of the new executive which included two new members.
Highlights of the meeting included a new vision for the club in doubling the dock capacity for dragon boats (DB) and outrigger canoes (OC) which reflects the burgeoning growth in membership in the club to more than 500 at present count.
The $200,000 investment by the club will enable easy but secure access to the boats for club members and a space for cleaning and maintenance of the boats.
Club members were also excited with the news that planning for the Fraser River Voyageur Brigade, which the club is hosting, is well in hand.
From Aug. 26-30, as many as 20 voyageur canoes with crews from across Canada will recreate part of the trip down the Fraser River from Harrison Lake to Deas Slough.
There will be an information meeting for interested participants from around the Langley area on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Fort Langley Community Hall on Glover Road.
