Nominations For 2020 CPS-ECP National Volunteer Awards

CPS-ECP National Volunteer Awards

May 28, 2020

Its ‘Awards’ time: Who are you going to Nominate?

CPS-ECP is made up of extraordinary individuals. Wouldn’t you like to make sure those people know how much they are valued and their contribution appreciated? An award is a special way to recognize and thank someone who has contributed exemplary effort to CPS-ECP in the areas of education, membership, volunteers, community, and communications.

Award winners will be publicly recognized at the October AGM in Windsor.

Any member can make a nomination. We know it can sometimes be difficult, because you might like to put their name forward for more than one category – that’s OK. Go ahead! You may like to nominate more than one person – that’s OK too.

Don’t put it off too long – just do it! Our volunteers deserve that consideration. 

And, there is no limit to the number of nominations one can submit. 

There are awards for:

• Volunteer of the Year
• Officer of the Year
• Instructor of the Year
• Electronic Instructor of the Year

While we have extraordinary individual volunteers, we also know that there are exceptional teams of people too. There are awards for squadrons and districts that have achieved great success in the classroom as well as an Environment Award. These teams are at the core of moving our organisation forward, ensuring boater safety but also in catalyzing CPS and its members to be leaders in actions that reduce impacts to the aquatic environment.

We also have awards for Best Squadron and Best District which can nominate themselves or be nominated by others. Let us know what you have achieved and how your achievements can inspire other Squadrons and Districts.

What great titles to be able to put on your web site – ”Volunteer”/ “Officer” / “Instructor” / “Best Class” / “Squadron” / “District” of the Year 2020 !

Sylvan’s brilliant G3 CLZ DC brings an entirely new level of performance, comfort and versatility to Canadian boaters.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
