FGPC’s board of directors and management are committed to ensuring that our athletes have the most competitive club-owned fleet of outriggers in the region. Over the winter and spring of 2019-2020, we are adding two new ultralight canoes to our fleet.
We need your help. We are counting on club paddlers and friends of FGPC to step up to support these new additions to our fleet -- without the need to raise program fees for our athletes. Between now and 31 March 2020, FGPC will match, dollar for dollar, every cash donation made toward the club's ultralight purchase program. If you donate $1,000 toward the new ultralights, the club will match your gift with a corresponding $1,000. In the world of outrigger paddling, this is a rare event indeed.
Here is the plan:

At the individual paddler level, here are the donation levels that club members and friends are being asked to consider:
Thank you for your support! Paddles up,
FGPC staff, board directors and coaching group
