Seeking input on Sioux Falls Big Sioux River

Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
Our club president is going to meet with staff from Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation to discuss ideas on improving access and use of the Big Sioux River in the Sioux Falls area, especially on the green way where the bike paths are located.

Gene Preston seeks input from all paddlers familiar with the river in the Sioux Falls area before Wednesday, April 15.

The more paddler input/insight we can give them, the more likely future construction/development will take into consideration all users, including canoe and kayakers.

Share your knowledge of the river - and places where changes might be needed - with Gene by either posting a comment to this blog entry, or by e-mailing Gene at You will probably have to cut and paste the e-mail address above into a new message to him to make it work.

Or feel free to e-mail Jarett and he will relay the information to Gene.

On another note, the Big Sioux has gone down nicely in the Flandreau area for our April 25 endeavors. We should be in great shape for a nice outing on the river. Crossing fingers for low winds and high temps.
