Ok so this one day of warm weather has got me pumped to paddle and enjoy the water.  Hope you all are ready as well.  Scott and I have added some of the events to our calender of events and we have added some to our facebook page.  I have also emailed everyone the schedule for 2013 it is also pasted below.  If you are not on our email list please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can stay in contact about our events. 

We have some great events planned as well as some amazing things happening throughout the region for our blueway trails.  If you have not checked out our Trails Wiki, you need to.  Scott and several others have worked really hard to get a good start on this project.  We hope you can help us build our trails wiki and our blog.  Please tell us some of your favorite places to paddle.

We enjoy hearing from you.  Have a great day.
