TRIATHELON JUNE 18,2016

TRIATHELON AT WALL LAKE SATURDAY JUNE 18      

SDCKA NEEDS VOLUNTEERS NEED VOLUNTEERS
The Wall Lake Triathlon is this Saturday, and they could use extra support on the water.  We need about a dozen volunteers.

Your job would be to float in your kayak near the swimmers, and be available if someone needs to hang onto your boat to rest or be taken back to shore.

Need to be at the beach by 7:00-7:15 am – this Saturday – June 18.   The event is done by noon, and they have free lunch for the volunteers.

The weather is going to be good & this is a great way to start the weekend!

ADAPTIVE PADDLING FAIR

 Adaptive Paddling Fair at Family Lake Park in Sioux Falls on Sunday June 12th.  We start around 9am and need paddlers and volunteers to help both on shore and on water.

Please consider giving some time to this endeavor as I promise the reward is great.

We will serve a quick lunch after the Adaptive Paddling Fair before we start the SDCKA annual Paddling Fair that afternoon.  Last year we had over 300 participants come try kayaking for the first time.  Needless to say we need lots of help and the generosity of loaning your gear to the event.

See you on the water.
