The KCC Board will be developing our contingency plans on continued response to COVID-19 as well as this expected cancellation news for the April 10 Board meeting and May 1 review date. The Board has already initiated preliminary discussions on dues refund and impact on budget, Paddlesport waivers for racers with OC1 canoe racks, OC6 usage since racing season is cancelled and as COVID-19 restrictions soften.
