PIKA AGM March 11

The Annual General Meeting and executive elections will be held on March 11, 2020.

Elections are followed by a regular general meeting and gear swap and sale.

Do you have spare gear to sell? Bring your gently used kayaking or camping gear to our semi-annual gear swap and sale, and if you’re looking for gear, bring your wallet!

Items are always at a great price and in great condition – so if you’re just starting out and need kayak or camping gear, or if you’ve been kayaking for a while and have worn out some of your gear, this is the place to be!

Harmsworth Hall, 7:30pm
