    Sorry, Candace that you didn't contact me until the last day. We had an even number of people at that point, and no way for me to get you in. Heavners will be fully open after Memorial Day, and might be able to handle last minute additions after that.

    A GREAT first paddle for this year! All conditions were magnificent, as were all the paddlers. You all get 5 stars for being "bumper canoe" experts, and also tricky maneuvering through the zig zag tree falls. Michele and Deann got voted a 9.8 rating for their Olympic moves on the slalom course - near the Canoe Camp area, they came out of it without a scratch! AND hardly any mosquitoes!

    Phil worked us - made us do the whole thing upstream!! Naaaa, was lovely, with higher water than last year's canoe/hike excursion. Met several nice people new to the group.

    Sorry Phil, I'm gonna wimp out. The last canoe trip I was rained on and freezy cold and it wasn't fun. Don't want to risk it. Weather report is iffy.
