Spring Development Camp at Burnaby Lake was a great success thanks to organizer Wes Hammer and his coaching crew of Blake Dalton, Laurence Chin, Matthew Abbott, Brain Hammer, Ben Muench and Diane Tam. Over 25 athletes spent their days working on technical basics, developing team boat skills, team building and fun! Thanks to our billets and our lunch moms. Great progress made by everyone.
