There are many kayakers in the Charlotte area. Some use the area rivers and lakes, some drive to the mountains to experience natural whitewater and flat water rivers and lakes, and some frequent our amazing Whitewater Center here in Charlotte. This group will put together outings for any and all of the above activities. Dues are not required to become a member of this club, however there are costs involved in keeping our site through Meetup. The club covers this cost by donations. Donations are not mandatory and any member can participate in club activities. Suggested donations are $5.00 per member per year, this money is used to pay for our site if there are funds left over we will use it to pay for an end of season dinner or campout that members would like to see. As always your input is valuable and suggestions for outings you would like to participate in are welcome. The more we participate the stronger our club will be now and in the future. Happy Paddling!
