On behalf of all of us at the @beavertailsott @ottawaicedragonboatfestival we wish you a very Merry Christmas.
Donors, athletes, supporters, volunteers, colleagues, friends. We want to update you all on our office move. Our staff, board members and volunteers worked all day yesterday to empty --- after 15 years --- our Minto office into a truck provided by one of our charity beneficiaries, Helping With Furniture. Today the full contents were moved into our new premises at 30 Metcalfe Street, 6th floor. It was a big effort, for which we express our deep gratitude for the mountainous effort that so many contributed to during these last months. By end of today, the contents were moved in and the office was closed for Christmas break. Special thanks to Gavin, Warren, Diane, Martin, John, Shelley, Maurice, Neil, Richard, Antony and our friends at Rogers, De Systems and Helping With Furniture . We look forward to welcoming each of you for a visit at our new location. To you all, a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!

Big Announcement! In celebration of their 40th Anniversary of BeaverTails® pastry operations in the National Capital Region, BeaverTails Ottawa Incorporated has signed on as the title sponsor of the 4th annual Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival, which will take place on the historic Rideau Canal Skateway at Dow’s Lake, February 7 – 8, 2020. “We are pleased and excited to be the title sponsor for the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival,” said BeaverTails founder Grant Hooker. “We are happy to partner with John Brooman and his team and feel the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival is a great opportunity to help add to the National Capital Commission’s celebration of the Rideau Canal Skateway’s 50th Anniversary. The Skateway has played an important and much appreciated role in the 40 year history of BeaverTails in the National Capital Region ”. “It is an honour to have BeaverTails as our title sponsor. There is a beautiful synergy between two brands so connected to the fabric and history of the Rideau Canal Skateway” says John Brooman, CEO, of the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival. “As my first employer, BeaverTails played an important role in my formative years. I learned and earned from the experience and I’m sure I echo the sentiments of thousands of ex-BeaverTailers when I say working for the Hookers, and their team, is a great introduction to life away from mom and dad. It is tremendous to have them supporting myself and my team for this event as we have a shared vision of putting on a world class family friendly festival for our community”. The BeaverTails Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival will host the 2nd IIDBF World Ice Dragon Boat Championships. Competitors will thrill guests of the National Capital Region and Winterlude by racing along the frozen surface of the World’s Largest Skating Rink and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors will enjoy a weekend of racing, free concerts, family fun, all aged activities, traditional Indigenous experience drum group and First Nations dancers, Success Lion Dancers and many more festivities. #beavertails #ottawa #icedragonboat #winterlude
