UPDATES! Location/event change this weekend!

Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
Due to conditions farther south, the SDCKA will host a cruise at noon on Saturday, Aug. 14, in Egan.

The cruise is about 10 miles and Larry Braaten is the leader for the event. The Egan event replaces both Larry's planned cruise near Canton and ShaRon Kelly's planned cruise near Baltic. This is the only organized event scheduled for the weekend of Aug 14-15.

If you want to join us, gather around noon in Egan. We'll unload there and then shuttle vehicles to the River of the Double Bend Campground in Trent. It's about 10-12 river miles downstream from Egan, and with the water moving so quickly, it should take about 2-3 hours to complete this route, depending on paddler's pace, etc.

Since the river has been so high, expect muddy conditions at both the start and finish. The starting point is the Egan City Park, located on the southeast edge of town. There's an iron bridge that crosses the river, and the park is adjacent.

If you have any questions, call Jarett at 605-941-4940.
