CHANGE OF VENUE - Saturday, Oct. 2

Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
Due to the flooding conditions on the Big Sioux River and the closing of waters in Minnehaha County, the Split Rock Creek cruise scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 2, has been moved to Lake Alvin.

Cruise leader Gene Preston said he will plan to be at Lake Alvin at the Lake access point on the North side at 1 p.m.

Other members of the South Dakota Canoe and Kayak Association also will be there, and while it will not be a moving-water cruise, the lake is scenic and very full.

Lake Alvin is fed, in part, by the Seven Mile Creek - shown in the photo - that will be worth exploring during the outing. Join us for this substitute adventure. Ryan Snuggerud, a club member, said this of the lake:

"The water is the highest I've ever seen it and it was fantastic to be on Alvin and not hit bottom with my paddle.The dock at the public access was partially under water and unusable. But all bank to the left was really easy to use as a substitute."

Post your questions here or call Gene Preston for more information - his number should be below on the original Oct. 2 trip entry - and consider joining the SDCKA for this fun trip to the lake!
