Bill and Avril Rublee are the most recent recipients of a Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club award created in 2020 to recognize individuals who have selflessly assisted in the growth and development of the club and sport, the Chris Taylor Stewardship Award.

Bill and Avril have volunteered as club directors for many years and became race officials. They have officiated locally, provincially, nationally and at Pan American Games and World Championships.

Officiating duties have not kept them from flipping burgers, pulling out lanes and organizing and hosting races on the local scene for the past 20 years.

The family includes children Cory, Aaron and Jessie, each of whom are accomplished paddlers, with provincial and national championship medals and national-team appointments on the Rublee sibling resume.
