We've finally been able to get some dates nailed down for our Loons Summer Outings. Please mark you schedules for our June 9th Banister River and July 14th Staunton River State Park. Those of you who are still young at heart (and mind) may want to join us for the Fun Float on June 23rd from Brookneal to Long Island. We do not sanction this event...but will probably go anyway.

We are also getting underway on our capital projects and website to get everything really rolling. We could sure use some volunteeer help keeping the website calendar and blogging. We'll get the website to where you can post your pictures. Tax-deductable donations are always needed and very much appreuciated! Please click on the button above and mark your donation for Upper Reach. This is a non-profit venture dedicated to promoting the use and protection of our all monies go to help raise awareness and supprot the outings. No personal compensation comes out of these donations (or any others for that matter) so please help out if you can. Remember that when taking advantage of shuttles is good paddler etiquette to "pony up" a couple of bucks to help defray the cost of gas and wear on personnal vehicles.

This has been an interesting start-up but everyone that has come out to paddle provides the inspiration to carry on. We wish to acknowledge and thank everyone who has taken part in our outings and events. You are helping to build a paddling community of friends that share in the love of the outdoors and the protection of our river system. Thank-You!
