Saturday at noon: Marindahl Lake
The first paddling fair of 2009 starts at noon sharp Saturday, May 9, at Marindahl Lake, located about six miles west and three miles south of Irene. Since we'll be in the southeastern part of the state, we sure hope we get some paddlers or curious folks from Yankton, Vermillion, and even Sioux City.
SDCA building chairman Rick Johns will host the event and will offer a range of craft he built for folks to try out. One of the newest Johns' creations is this unique canoe.
Rick said it is a solo canoe, designed for a paddler with a double-blade. It will be available for folks to put its 11-foot, 1-inch beauty through the mild waves of Marindahl. Weather looks sharp, too, with sun and 63 forecast.
Please spread the word wide and far - esp. to those who do not go to this blog - and we'll see you Saturday for some hands-on fun.
