Our new connection in Pierre
As mentioned in the last post, the crew in Pierre, who paddle Lake Oahe (shown in picture in full winter whitecap mode above the dam) and other waters, are happy to show a greenhorn around the Missouri River in Sodak's capital. Since I had a picture of Oahe, thought I would mention again this new connection.
Visit their site at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pierrekayakclub/.
In addition to the big waters of Oahe, which stretch from Pierre back into Nodak, this group is a hop and a skip from the Cheyenne and White rivers. Here's to hoping we'll connect SDCKA members with the Pierre Kayak Club this year.
John mentioned the Earth Day paddle as an event he comes to the Big Sioux for - sorry, still no word from the Sierra Club on their plans. Soon as I get some word, we'll make those April plans, friends.
We are finalizing the route and dates for the SDCKA's "North of Flandreau" April cruise, too.
