Many thanks to everyone that "likes" us on facebook. We've been busy working ot get the launch and website projects underway and its taking a lot of time. We continue to get good news from State agencies, the Corps and other groups on possible projects so hopefully we'll ahve some big announcements soon to pass along.

MOur biggest focus now is in trying to buidl this paddling community to a point where some of our friends will feel free to blog, post pictures, help with Spring paddling outing, etc..

There's lots of opportunities to volunteer and you don't have to commit long term or otherwise over commit. Last two weeks three folsk have stepped up to say they want to help. A student at NCSU Recreation Management is helping write some of the letters to try and approach teh NC Golden Leaf Foundation, a recent Landscape Architecture graduate has offered to help on mapping, a past Parks and Recreation manager has offered to help on miscellaneous and I've recruited my nephew to help on launch ramp construction. We're in discussion with the Boys Scouts about partnering on projects and thats jsut for starts.

We need someone to run point on a Spring outing (nothing big just have to pick a date and place and tell everyone to be there). I'm trying to make time to talk to more groups and show our power point and could always use some help. It only amounts to a couple of hours here and there so drop us a line if you can spare a few.

Enough for now....remember to GET OUT NOW!
