The Kootenay Robusters took part in an early season festival in Penticton on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15. With many new paddlers on the roster, our goals were to practice putting  6 races together using the skills that we will be honing all season  - and to have some fun!  Although we didn't win any prizes, we were pleased with how well the team paddled after only 19 practices this season. The Super Sprints were a perfect starting point for us, since the 250 meter races were manageable for everyone. This festival included some highly skilled teams whose strength and timing impressed and motivated us.  We hope to be ready to compete again in August at the Calgary Festival.
