    Where were all of you? Wendy, I didn't see you at the bathrooms after I parked my car. Then I was at tibbetts from 2 to 2:40. Then I paddled over by the festival then back to tibbets. Never did see a large group of paddlers. Even asked people along the way. I stayed till 4:45. Paddled up the river.

    I will be going to Demo Days but not sure I will be there by 10 to meet up with everyone. I will try to bring my kayak and join everyone. Would it be best if I change my RSVP since I may not show up until after 10?

    May 6, 2014

    • Wendy K.

      no thats ok dont change it. hope you can make the paddle. but thanks for letting me know you'll be later. You should be able to identify others in the group by the sticker, I will post on Friday what that sticker is.
