Hello All,


Finally we have set dates for the rest of 2012.  I have been so busy I am sorry this is a little late.  But hey atleast you got it right....


August:  We will not be paddling as Loons in August.  How ever if you would like to participate in a great event at Lake Gaston here is your chance.  August 11th is The Crossing Event.  Please see

September 15th 2012 10:30am .We will be joining fellow paddlers for Banister River Days.  I will send more information about this trip when available.

October 13th 2012 10:30am We will be paddling from Roanoke Rapids to Weldon on the Roanoke River.  This is a great paddle.  Depending on the route you take for this trip it could take up to 3hours.  The shortest route is only about 1.5 hours.  Very scenic with small rapids.

SPECIAL EVENT:  I am going to take a group of people out for a fishing trip at Tailrace Park.  We will be fishing for Striper and Large Mouth and may catch a Walleye or two.  This trip is on Oct 27th at 7:30 am.  Please RSVP.  You will have to provide all your own fishing gear and bait.

November 10th 2012 12:00 pm Hawtree Fun Paddle.  We will be putting in at the Public boat launch at Hawtree Creek (off US 1 on 712).  This paddle will last about 2.5 hours or less with a picnic afterwards.  Scott Murray has reserved the Merrrymount Picnic Shelter (half mile from boat launch).  You will be responsible for bringing your own food and drink.  Once again Scott and I will provide Fire and Ice.  Please RSVP to this event.


We will not be doing a paddle in December because of the Holiday season.  I will be fishing and looking for a partner to do some kayak fishing with so email me.


Happy Paddling!!!
