Sunday Jazz Brunch Trip!

DESTINATION - The Sunday Jazz Brunch (http://www.fortlauderdale.gov/events/jazzbrunch/jazzbrunch.htm) is a year-round monthly event featuring a variety of Jazz, food & drink , and various crafts from vendors along the Riverwalk.  Please plan on bringing either money or food, as well as something to sit on while you enjoy the music and company.

    Great! See you there. Maybe we should be bringing hot chocolate
    instead of water. Only kidding. I knew the was a reason I took
    down my solo kayak. See you in the morning.

    Hello everyone.

    The weather forecast for tomorrow at meeting tine of 9am is 53 and possible showers.

    I am trying to get a consensus of whether everyone still wants to go or if we want to try again next month (the jazz brunch is every month).

    If anyone still wants to go I will be available to host the group and we can meet at 9:30 as arranged.

    Let me know what you think.

    Hi Phil,
    I'm getting into Pompano Saturday evening. I've paddled the Wilton Manors Loop, Whiskey Creek, and, my favorite, the Loxahatchee. I have an Old Town 10.3 Dirigo which should be fine even without a skirt. Looking forward to the paddle and the jazz.

  • Pat M.

    I'm driving in from Memphis and this is the first time I will actually paddle with the group. I gave 10 Dirigo
