Thanks for joining us at annual conference!

The SDCKA annual conference brought about five dozen paddling enthusiasts out on Jan. 28, where a wealth of information was shared on chances to paddle across our region and state. Presenters shared insight on a pair of River Friends groups that have formed, and a lot of the information shared was on methods to clean up our waterways for future use.

President Mary Finck was honored as well. She is the first woman to helm the club since it was founded back in 1979. She also doled out honors in the form of awards for two club leaders, Steven Dahlmeier and Cory Diedrich, who earned the Jay Heath and Dick Davidson awards this go-round.

In all, the event was lively and spirited and a lot of good conversations began while the day was shared. We will continue to update this blog so that folks can gain more insight on events and opportunities that will fill our 2017 with plenty of paddling chances. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us and special thanks to all the presenters who offered their time to help inform our group.
Feel free to reach out to us with questions! We realize not everyone has Facebook access, so we are here as well and hope to help you get on the water more this year!
