CORRECTION: Paddling Fair (Family Lake) is June 2 and the Water Sampling Event(Lake Alvin) is JUNE 9.
Apologies for the "dead" nature of this blog - Facebook has really taken front seat in our electronic efforts to keep members connected. The FB link for our group is here and it gets a lot of traffic for cruise announcements and tons of other stuff. Remember, even if FB seems foreign and scary, you can join and use it solely for kayaking, it's up to you. Eight hundred million users make FB a bit of an obvious choice in terms of keeping in touch.
We have added new authors for our blog and the club's renewing its efforts to keep this site active and thriving. Let us know what you want to talk about it and we'll do it here and on Facebook.
We have a number of events upcoming, including a planned April 21 cruise on the Big Sioux River between Flandreau Powwow Grounds and the Flandreau Dam, shown in the photo above.
Jarett Bies is the contact on that event, and with this amazing spring weather everyone's out paddling, so please join us, invite us and keep paddling!
Our paddling fair is June 2 at Family Lake in Sioux Falls, and we'll need your help at 9 a.m. on June 9 to sample water at Lake Alvin, too.
Keep paddling be safe, pack dry-bags with extra clothes every time out, take lots of photos, and we'll see you on the water!
