C3 PLANNING A BIG SUMMER
 
Some of have been members for decades and others have been members for only a few weeks.  I can tell you that C3 has our biggest and most exciting summer planned in our 27 year history.   New paddle boards purchased, a much larger beach, new beach volleyball courts built, Olympic Champion Simon Whitfield planning on coming to Caledon at the end of May and early June.  Our Kids of Steel Race (for adults and kids is back) and many additional events in paddle boarding, open water swimming and running races.   C3 cannot do what we do without our amazing volunteers, board of directors and sponsors. 

Please read through our newsletter to understand what you and your family can and should consider to optimize your fun and fitness tis spring and summer. 

March is always an odd month of good and bad and cold and hot and snowy weather.  April and longer days are right around the corner.  Keep the faith.  
 
Have a great week

LOTS OF FINAL WORK BEING DONE AT C3 QUARRY
 
While there is still some snow flakes blowing around, C3 senior staff and board and volunteers are preparing the quarry for our biggest and best summer ever.   Paddle boards have been purchased.  Volleyball nets are being picked up next week.  Truck loads of sand were dropped in November to increase our beach size another 30% bigger.   Work is being done on creating a second gazebo and we are optimally finalizing plans to try to get electricity down to the beach.  You can't imagine how busy our team has been.   More pictures and specific dates in the next few weeks.
