Leave your cares on shore and enjoy the beauty of nature, the sound of birds, and the calming affect of floating on water.
This is a kayaking group for women of Northern Colorado who are looking for others to go with on flat water and calm river excursions. The Fort Collins Flatwater Frogs is geared to the beginning and intermediate paddlers. It is for women who want to enjoy things like, spontaneous swims from the banks, sharing of chocolate, or Noosa yogurt at lunchtime, silently floating in the trees amidst the songs of various birds, and experiencing the joy of new places with other sisters of Colorado lakes, reservoirs and calm rivers. This group includes paddles from 2 to several hours long. Paddles can be free of charge or up to $14, depending on the location. We try to mix up the locations and days so all can participate. Since we began in 2010, Frogs have participated in nearly 200 paddles. The Frogs serves as a place for individuals to meet others with whom they can paddle whenever they'd like, and as an educational resource for tips about the sport and equipment.
It is best if members have their own boat. Women are welcome to ask questions of members about equipment when they are considering purchasing their first kayak. There is a page on the site titled, "All about boats" and this will give you some basic information about choosing a kayak and even places to rent a kayak.
The goals of this Meet up are to have fun, make new friends, and celebrate nature on the water. We are a positive and supportive group of women of diverse careers and backgrounds. New ideas are welcome to make this the best and most unFROGettable group around. Guests are welcome to some of our paddles, depending upon the event.
So come on gals, grab your boat, paddle, hat, life vest, sunscreen, camera, and hop on over to the Flatwater Frogs lily pad, where we will explore the lakes and reservoirs of the area and provide a lot of fond Frog memories that will leap to your mind and make you smile when ya have to return to work or land.
