Jen Villain CCC

Team APE’s came back together this past Saturday afternoon at the NOC for the Canoe Club Challenge event #2!  Another great time was had by all in attendance and we had a total of 13 paddlers support our team!  Big thanks to Max, Rick, Jeff, Ryan, Jennifer, Mike, Ty, Paul, Tierney, Clay & Ann Marie for joining Team APE’s!  We came in with another strong 3rd place finish overall in event #2 as a club.  Team APE’s has a solid 3rd place spot on the podium currently in the series and we are only 10 runs away from taking 2nd from the AWC!  We also met one of our goals for this series, which was to place above the AWC and CCC in one of the events!  Rock on Team APE’s!!  Let’s keep the strong momentum for the Team going into the final event next month!
