McNab • Braeside 150 Relay

Going for the Guinness
not the ale, but the record

Take part in a unique relay across the township and help us celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary!

It’s all happening on June 24, starting at the Sand Point wharf at 8 a.m. We’re looking for people of all ages and abilities to participate — and provide a cheering section of course!

Here’s how the relay works:

Participants will carry the baton — carved by Dub Juby, the Valley Carver! — using a mode of transportation of their choosing (skateboard, wheelbarrow, tricycle, bicycle, kayak, canoe, scooter, motorcycle — the sky really is the limit!). We’re looking for as many modes of transportation as possible, for our application to the Guinness Book of Records organization.

The route:

  • Sand Point to Red Pine Bay
  • Red Pine Bay into village of Braeside
  • Braeside to Dochart Soccer Field, via the CN Recreation Trail at Division Street (boundary between Arnprior and the Township)
  • Dochart Soccer Field up Duncan Drive and over the Pine Grove overpass to Wellington Park in Pine Grove
  • Wellington Park to White Lake Road and to Clay Bank Park
  • Clay Bank Park boat launch to Flat Rapids Road, to Farmer’s Market building on Russett Drive
  • Russett Drive to McNab Centre Park on Calabogie Road
  • McNab Centre Park to Burnstown Beach, to old beach by the United Church, and into village of Burnstown
  • Burnstown to the village of White Lake, to park/beach, then over to the boat launch at Waba Cottage Museum

Finale: Waba Cottage Museum, 5 p.m. — there’ll be entertainment, food, children’s activities, a beer tent and the unveiling of a time capsule.

We need:

  • Participants
  • Lots of volunteers
