CSM – Montebello (ONEC)
August 25-26, 2018
Who will win the Hensler trophy this year?
The CSM is taking a year off! Instead, an inaugural distance/tour row from Ottawa to Montebello will replace it. The 65 km tour will begin in Ottawa (ONEC) early Saturday morning and end in Montebello shortly after lunch on Sunday.
On Saturday, the tour will end in Rockland. From there, you will be shuttled to Montebello where accommodation is arranged at Auberge Montebello.
Dinner is a BBQ feast at Fairmont Le Château Montebello, home of the largest log cabin in the world and famous for its gastronomy! http://www.fairmont.com/montebello/ The BBQ offers seafood and steak stations, salad and dessert bars, etc. which means loads of great food! Per person cost is $58.00.
Please indicate on the Registration Form if the BBQ is your preference. For those that prefer a different choice – and there are many – they are responsible for making their own dinner arrangements.
There are loads of other activities and points of interest in the area for non-rowing folk such as Parc Omega, Parc national de Plaisance and regional agro-tourisme. So, bring your friends/family along. Spend an extra day or two if you wish. You won’t be disappointed!
Even though the CSM takes a different form this year, you will not miss a chance to win the Hensler trophy. This year it will be awarded to the club that has the most participants on this tour!
