Welcome to Banook Canoe Club's 2022-2023 Membership Registration.
Thank you for becoming an important part of the oldest canoe club in Atlantic Canada. At BCC, we stress family recreational atmosphere and a competitive canoeing and kayaking environment. We take pride in our historic clubhouse and are pleased that you’ve joined us in the preservation of this facility and the stewardship of the lake.
BCC membership is from 01 May, 2022 to 30 April, 2023. BCC does not offer prorated memberships.
In this section you will select the type of membership you are purchasing (e.g. Family, Individual, Senior (65+), etc). You can add Boat Storage (for a sprint canoe or sprint kayak, not pleasure craft), if required, to any membership type.
If you are renewing membership: please take a moment to review, update or verify your individual or family profile details (e.g. mailing address, contact phone numbers).
Once you have completed your membership, you may then go to the Paddling Program Registration to register your paddlers in their programming.
The options you will find in Membership registration represent what we expect to be able to provide this year based on the province’s plan for phased reopening. Our options may change if provincial guidelines change. If we are unable to offer an option for which you have registered and paid, you will receive a refund.
Banook Canoe Club is approaching 120 years in age, and we want to see it serve the community for another 120 years. To make this happen, BCC is beginning a Capital Campaign this season to raise sufficient funds for a major renovation that may begin in 2022. To help resource some of the early work, Banook is adding an annual Capital Campaign Fee to each membership, of $25 per individual membership, and $50 per family membership. For transparency, the revenue collected each year through this fee will be reported in the Club’s annual financial statements.
Running programs and keeping the Club open during a pandemic and with the restrictions imposed continues to come at a cost. For this reason we again have a COVID-19 surcharge on each membership, but the cost is reduced this year to $25 per individual membership and $50 per family membership. This is necessary to be able to cover incremental expenses associated with fulfilling public health measures at the club. If COVID-19 restrictions are completely removed by the province this year, the remaining proceeds from the COVID-19 surcharge will be directed to the Capital Campaign Fund.
Once you have chosen your Membership option (and any add-ons like boat storage) you must select "PAY NOW" to complete your membership registration. If you do not receive an email confirmation, your registration is not complete, please contact email@example.com.
Payment may be made in a lump sum for the full amount of your membership, or you may pay in 3 equal payments, that are due May 1st, June1st and July 1st. Payment should be sent by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If paying lump sum, the entire amount must be paid by May 1st.
If paying in 3 equal payments, these must be received on schedule. BCC reserves the right to refuse paddler's participation in the program if payment is not made.
No refunds on membership will be allowed without a medical exemption request in writing.
Please note that due to the ICF Canoe'22 being held on Lake Banook this summer, Banook Canoe Club will be closed between August 1-7, and members will not have access to the club.
