Sudden Impact hosting paddle practice on Cultus Lake

Anyone interested in trying dragon boating is invited to the Sunnyside boat launch at 11 a.m. Saturday morning.

The Cultus Lake-based Sudden Impact Paddling Club is holding an open paddle Saturday morning at 11 a.m.

Anyone who is interested should meet at the Sunnyside boat launch.

The club is recruiting paddlers for four teams, with Sudden Impact Black its most competitive crew.

The co-ed group practices three times a week, training year round.

SI Black has competed in two national championships, and now rank as one of the top 20 teams in North America. Two of its members now paddle on the Canadian national team.

SI Blue is a co-ed recreational team that is still very competitive.

The team practices twice a week and will compete in four or five regattas this year.

Liquid Silver is Sudden Impact’s youth team, open to paddlers ages 13-18.

They practice Monday nights and will compete in four or five regattas between now and September.

Sudden Impact’s fourth crew, the Water Warriors, are a womens’ team.

Paddlers are welcome to join at any time, with their first three sessions free.
