Welcome Back

phoca thumb l dsc04578Welcome to another fantastic season of paddling in Southwest Florida .

First, 2 dates to remember: the Welcome Party is on Monday, January 8 @ 4:00 PM; the Farewell Party is on Monday, March 19, also @ 4:00 PM.  Both activities are listed on the 2018 Winter Activity Calendar.

Next, our regular Monday paddles will continue.  Boats should be out at 8:00, and we leave from the Lakes Exit at 9:30.  We will have our first paddle on January 8, and the last paddle…when Tom puts the trailers away!  We will continue with the Thursday paddles on the river @ 9:30.  Just show up and put your boat in the water.

There are 11 Monday paddles to schedule, beginning with January 8.  I plan to make a tentative calendar of the Monday trips, subject to change due to weather.  If anyone has a trip they would like to add to the usual list, please feel free to contact me with your ideas.

 We may be offering an “all day” kayak trip during the season.  It will be to somewhere a little further than the normal trips.  This may include a 2-hour drive, our paddle adventure, and dinner on the way back to Riverside.  This will take some planning, and a commitment from members to attend.  More discussion will follow at our Welcome Party.

I hope this finds you all healthy and eager to get back to your winter home.  Happy Holidays and Safe Travels.
