For kayakers in and around the Fox Valley area .

Please ensure you read our PFD and alcohol policy prior to attending any event. PFD's will be worn, no alcohol consumption for all paddles will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. NO EXCEPTIONS. 

If you are looking to get out and meet others that share your passion for kayaking (and canoeing), join Fox Valley Yakkers. Together we can explore the Fox Valley area waterways. Everyone is welcome to join, no matter how much experience you have. So if you have a kayak sitting around, grab it, load it and lets start having fun.  If you have any questions or concerns, call or email the leadership team. We are happy to meet new people that share our passion. Our goal is to bring other kayakers together. Without having to travel too far, we have plenty of places to paddle.  All meetup ideas are considered and voted on by our members.

With that, WELCOME to our "family".  Just remember...life is short...paddle hard!

**Paddles will be assigned a "level" or "rating" so members can better gauge if they want to participate or not.  The labels are estimates as to how the paddles will go.  The following labels will be used**

Beginner = paddles under 10 miles, no obstacles anticipated, current favorable, water temperatures favorable

Intermediate = paddles 10+ miles, possible obstacles or stronger currents. Water temps may be low if early season date.

Advanced = paddles 10+ miles, &/or challenging currents or conditions(weather,water temps,ets.). May also include multiple day trips with camping.
