    Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the activities due to an ongoing medical condition that's reared its ugly head. However, someone can borrow my 12' sit on top kayak, paddle and life jacket. I'll still be able to provide shuttle service and the trailer.

      Sorry for any confusion. The event web page indicated a location was needed, so I added it. Nothing was "changed." (?)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
