This group is for those who want to do more than simply paddle lakes.
It was originally started as an informal way for paddlers to get together and to introduce lake paddlers and others to the fun and excitement of canoeing and kayaking on rivers, those in Texas and out of state. All skill levels are welcome. Guidance may be given on skill level required for some trips. All are responsible for their own safety.
Personally, I hope that it will be a welcome place for beginners to get their start; a good place for experts to swap info and put together trips, and a good group for everyone who falls in between these levels. With any luck it will be a good place to trade information and for everyone to learn more about the world of paddlesports
Boats and transportation may be provided, depending on availability and on the needs of each activity; please don't be afraid to ask.
Day trips and extended trips may be planned, hopefully with some trips to paddling fests and to major rivers out of state. I am also looking into options for training.
The group itself will collect no money or fees. People may ask for money to cover the cost of some trips or events, but this is entirely between the person announcing the event and the people attending. Commercial or nonpaddling-related announcements may be deleted.
Enjoy, and we will see you on the river.
