CORA Town Hall (6 November 4pm Pacific): Lest We Forget – CORA Hall Of Fame

YOU’RE INVITED! CORA’s board invites you to attend our “Hall of Fame” Town Hall on Saturday 6 November (4pm Pacific) to virtually recognize our 2021 Hall Of Fame inductees. CORA is hosting this online presentation to recognize and virtually meet, through friends and colleagues, our 2021 inductees from across Canada and beyond.

Guest speakers include Kamini Jain, Dan O’Donovan (Calgary), Tony Hall (Nova Scotia), Karen Tomlinson (Pemberton), Mallorie Nicholson (Burloak / Victoria), Lynne Smith (Clipper Canoes, Vancouver), Mel Whittall (Open Ocean Outriggers, Vancouver), Doug Mancell (Lotus, Vancouver), and Andrea Dillon (DB Canada Hall Of Fame, Vancouver).

This is our opportunity to get to know individuals such as Jackie Webber, Hugh Fisher, Sheila Kuyper, James van Nostrand, Drew Mitchell, Garry and Jim Mancell, and Alan Carlsson, all of whom have made significant contributions to outrigger canoeing in Canada over their lifetimes as athletes, coaches, builders, and as pioneers. Although their histories have been published on the CORA website, their friends and colleagues have personal insights they want to share.

CORA Town Hall (16 October 4pm Pacific): OC6 Seat Roles

Welcome to CORA’s Town Hall Fall/Winter 2021-22 Series. This first virtual town hall of the colder months ahead (#7 in the 2021 series) will focus discussion and experience on the tactics, techniques and mental “game” required for each (and every) critical seat in a crew boat outrigger.

CORA’s facilitators will guide discussion among guest speakers with experience in each seat, from 1 through 6, as they determine, in front of the audience, how they have worked in their seats in past races, and how they would work together in a race as a first-ever combined group of paddlers. They will, in effect, figure out how to race effectively as a throw-together team.

The audience will be encouraged to ask questions along the way. Please join us for this fun, first-of-the-season Town Hall discussions!

Zoom forum date: Saturday 16 October at 4pm Pacific
