Do you own a kayak or canoe?

Yes, several. I also enjoy paddle boarding, especially in tropical waters.

What is your experience level with paddling and where have you paddled before?

I have been paddling canoes and kayaks for about 20-25 years. I have paddled about 2-3 times pet week in Lake Springfield, year-round, weather permitting for the last 12 years. I have paddled in the Great Lakes, the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts of the US, Canada, and in the Philippines. I have attended five sea kayak symposia on the Great Lakes and and have practiced self and assisted kayak rescues and surf landings.

Do you belong to any other paddling clubs?

Mackinaw Canoe Club.

What would you like from this club?

To meet people to paddle with in and around Illinois.

By joining this group I acknowledge the risk inherent in this sport and agree to release from liability the Central Illinois Canoe & Paddling Meetup Group as spelled out more fully in the liability waiver posted elsewhere on this site under "Pages"



I live in Springfield. I enjoy kayaking all types of water.

What Mike H. is saying about this Meetup Group

A great group of people.
