When it all began....

Our history begins a couple of years before we received our warrant. In he year 1958, Harry Hickson graduated in the piloting course, and became a member of the London, Ontario Squadron, Number 2100.

On his transfer to North Bay and seeing our two beautiful lakes, took it unto himself to form a squadron here. In 1960 he gathered together a group of interested men and taught the piloting course.
The graduating class was pledged by Chief Commander Alex R. Neville AP and at this same time the Bridge was also pledged.

Chief Commander Neville presented the warrant to Secretary Ronald D. Wood. In the same ceremonies that evening Harry Hickson was pledged as the first commander. 
Warrant issues June 2, 1961. Charter received June 16, 1961.

Harry Hickson went on to complete, Seamanship 1961, and AP 1962. He became a senior member 1965 and had received 11 merit marks. Later on he became a District Commander, then on retiring fro work, finally settled in Waterloo Ontario. In 1983 Harry Hickson set sail into the sunset and passed away.

At the time he was commander, he presented the squadron with a trophy in his name, to be awarded annual to a member of the squadron, who was deemed to have contributed time and effort, in the betterment of safe boating and squadron activities. Naturally, his is the first name to appear. We will remember him.

Names of those appearing on the warrant: 
John W. Chapman, Reg Finnemore, Stanley Gore, Harry Hickson, Stan Hosken, George A. Jackson, John A. Kennedy, William G. Leigh, Ken H. Moore, Maruice A. Sage, John D. Size, Norman C. Smith, D.C. Treleaven, Ronald D. Wood.
