Spinning on the RMCC Pier

Spinning on the RMCC Pier

By: Ryan Thompson

June is Recreation Month (JRM) is a PSP national campaign created to promote physical activity. As part of this initiative RMCC Recreation and Intramural Department hosted four outdoor spin classes. Over 80 RMC Cadets on June 14th, 16th, and 21st participated in a spin class on the HMCS Cataraqui patio. On June 23rd, 30 RMC Staff members, including the RMC Principal, Dr. Harry Kowal, took part in the staff spin class at the RMCC Pier under perfect conditions.


As a sponsor of JRM, Canadian Tire donated prizing for this event series. Each participant had the opportunity to win $100 to Canadian through a random draw, as well as, we rewarded the participant who travelled the farthest KM during the class. Congratulations to:

NCdt Omand – highest KM (25KM) June 14th

OCdt Gaudet – random draw winner June 14th

OCdt Toth – highest KM (25KM) June 16th

A special thanks is required for Cynthia Vanderstoop, Stephanie Haynes and Erin Thompson who were our three spin instructors throughout the duration of our Spin series.  Now that June is almost coming to an end we would like to remind everyone that Recreation should be a lifelong focus and to take advantage of all the opportunities that are here at the Royal Military College.  The PSP Recreation team is available to plan any Team Building or Unit Sport activities around the College.  Some of the activities we have planned in the past are; Watersports (Sailing, Kayaking, Canoe, Stand-up Paddle Board, and Windsurfing), Beach Volleyball, Rock Climbing, Baseball, Soccer, and so many more activities.  Please contact Ryan Thompson ([email protected]) or Samantha Rocheleau ([email protected]) to enlist our help.  All of these activities are completely free.
