Why did you decide to join this group?

No answer yet

What would you say your experience level is?(we like all levels, but it may help us target events)

ACA Moving Water Instructor Certified.

What type of paddling do you typically do?(flatwater, whitewater, sea)

A mix, but mostly rivers. I paddle flat water, lakes and mild rivers, little bit of white water, sea, heck, if it floats a boat I will try it.

How often do you typically paddle?(once a month, once a week, etc)

I try to paddle at least twice a week, more if I can. I paddle year round, snow and ice are our friends.

Would you participate in social events with this group, even if paddling wasn't involved?

    Hi John,
    I forgot to mention when I saw you Saturday that I found out how people can use their GPS to get to the Johnson Ferry Park. It shows up on my GPS (Google Maps) as "Urban Currents Sit-on-top Put-in". Hope this helps. Have a great week!

    Hi John, Dennis Kast, me (Lisa Macy) and my 19 year old daughter Sydney Munster would like to RSVP for the Sat July 13 Class. We paid in Dec through pay pal. I tried to RSVP on the site but it won't let me unless I pay again. Can I reserve 3 spots for us. I can borrow my roommate's boat if necessary. We are beginners with some experience paddling in gentle places on the river. I am 5'10" 155 lbs and can get you Syd and Dennis' info. Thanks, Lisa Macy [masked], [masked]

    Hello John, I don't know if this is the best way to contact you or not. A few friends and I are going on a long distance trek in 2013 from Atlanta to Darien. 2 of us aren't very experienced and are interested in taking a kayak class prior to the trek. Can you teach it and how much is it? We are also open to other paddlers coming along. It should be 3 weeks or less.

    Hi, John,

    I signed up and paid for the outing, but didn't have the option to pay the extra $50 for the boat rental. Please let me know how I can do that. I'd like to use the Jackson Rogue if possible. You can e-mail me at [masked] or call or text me at [masked] to let me know how to pay the difference. Really enjoyed the beginner class today and am really looking forward to Hiawassee!

    I got your voicemail, John. Thanks for following up. I will need to use one of your kayaks for this Sunday. I am saving up for my own, though :)
