Hello to all SDCKA Members!

Summer is wrapping up but there’s some great paddling ahead as we get into fall. Your SDCKA Board thought what better place for the President’s Cruise than on the newly established Jay Heath Trail? This is a good chance to be with others and explore the route and see the new campsites installed for canoe and kayakers
The president's cruise will be September 30, 2017 at 11AM at hywy 18, about 3 miles east of Canton, SD.  We will meet there and shuttle vehicles to Newton Hills.  On Sunday October 1 we will shuttle to Fairview for the last part of the cruise. 

The Jay Heath Trail campsite is located across from canoe launch just before the entrance of the horse camp at at Newton Hills State Park,  we will meet here for a simple cook-out.

We also have the Jay Heath campsite reserved for Saturday night for anyone that would like to tent camp for the night. There are vault toilets available and water, or anyone wishing to camp in the Newton Hills State Park should get their reservations made (asap) the park fills up fast.  Mary and Dave Finck are in campsite # 4.  If you have any questions you can call me at 605-366-6844.
