Do you own a kayak or canoe?

The red boat on my profile picture is my 14 ft tsunami. I just got a 17.5 ft Pygmy Coho which is a custom built kit boat.

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

Advanced. My friends and I will leave the launch point and paddle continuously for 2 hrs. We expect that we will cover 7 - 8 miles in that time. I have paddled the Illinois, Spoon, Mackinaw, Rock, Colorado, & Occonto Rivers along with Lake Michigan. We consider 6 miles to be a short trip. FYI, 2 friends of mine and I paddled Henry to Shore Acres during the jaunt in 3 &1 /2 hrs. We did break for lunch, and we were pushing the pace on that trip.

Do you belong to any other paddling clubs?

No

What would you like from this club?

Find a group of other advanced paddlers that are capable of paddling with us.

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"
