New event and other news
Split Rock Creek is a beautiful little spot in Garretson's city park. The creek is not long, but offers some amazing scenery in a tiny spot.
Join the club and get in some paddling, this coming Sunday.
In other news, the SDCA-sponsored kayaking race, the South Dakota Kayak Challenge, has been postponed. It was set to take place in September, but due to low enrollment and other factors, the race will take place in 2010. The route will be new and so too will be the effort to get as many folks involved as possible.
We send our thanks out to the many folks who supported the effort to get this event up and running and remind all who would help this year that we'll call on you again next.
Lastly, longtime club mentor and leader Dick Davidson has taken ill and is in the hospital in Sioux Falls. He has little family in the area and club member Jay visited him - he is in Sanford, room 6166 - and Dick seemed to appreciate that, he requested reading materials.
I'm sure it would mean a lot for Dick if others would visit him. He is an amazing man with epic tales of adventure.
