Info on Mileage Rates, Rental Rates and Use of Club Equipment on Private Trips

Mileage Rate 2022 The Club operates on a "friends driving friends" model. Based on this model, before any trip, driver and passenger(s) should make mutually agreeable financial arrangements to share the costs of driving. If a guideline is necessary, the Club recommends the cost of the trip be calculated at $0.50/km ($0.60/km for carrying two or more canoes), to be divided equally among the number of travellers, including the driver. A increase in the mileage rate is recommended by the executive for 2022 because of the greatly increased gas prices.

Use of Club Equipment on Private Trips The rule for private use is, "it is a privilege earned through active participation in the Club" and must be approved in advance by the appropriate co-ordinator. Please refer requests for private trips to: WHITEWATER REQUESTS must be approved by the Whitewater Coordinator (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). FLATWATER REQUESTS must be approved by the Flatwater Coordinator (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or the Family Coordinator (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Note that club trips and training events get priority over private trips in terms of equipment. It is best to turn up Tuesday evening at the shed between 7pm and 8pm to see what boats are available and make arrangements with Boathouse Volunteer. Failing that, contact the Assets Coordinator (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to determine the availability of equipment.
