      Alden, We are keeping a close eye on the weather forcasts. We love to paddle in the rain, but won't paddle if there is thunder and/or lightning. The chance of rain diminishes a bit later in the day on Saturday. It looks as though it could be a last minute decision. Our instructors will be sure to post updates.

    I am wondering... I see it says minimum age 8, but this is a public launch so if I came with my daughter could I tail the group just so I knew where I was going and not be technically apart of it?

      Hi Julia: Kevin pointed out a mistake in the content. Due to the nature of this outing, I meant to put a minimum age of 10.
