We Need Your Competitions Entries

CPS Competitions Entries

Sept 21, 2016

The days are flying by, and it will soon be the last week in October, and the CPS-ECP National Conference 2016 will be underway. One of the best parts of the conference is always the Competitions. We want the 2016 Competitions to be very successful, but to date, I have received only two entries, and one promise of an entry.

The competitions are held to enable District and Squadron members to showcase their ideas and experiences in both inspiring and enabling students to learn more easily, to ensure they develop safe boating skills, but also better explore the waterways and increase their boating enjoyment.

The craft/art /publications section appeals to all people- and we never know what media publication, photo, place mat, quilt, or story will inspire creativity and joy in ourselves and others.

Districts, Squadrons and members – please rustle the sails and tap the bows of all our members! We all know members who have developed very special projects.

Sharing those special projects helps everyone.

Deadline for entries is October 1, 2016.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
