For 2010 we are establishing Thursday night Kayaking/Canoe training events. Every Thursday night we will be putting in at various parks around the Madison area. We will paddle for a couple of hours and then break. The events will be for beginners and intermediate skilled paddlers, giving you an opportunity to strengthen your skills for the longer events which normally take place on the weekends. I?ve taken a look at maps of the area and it seems likely that we will put in at Cherokee Marsh (south), Lake Wingra, Olin-Turville, Olbrich, Fish Camp/Mud Lake-McFarland, Warner Beach, Token Creek, and Harvey E. Schmidt Park. I personally have not been to most of these locations but will scout them out prior to scheduling. If you have a favorite spot, give me a call or e-mail. Our first concern for Thursday night is safety (calm water), ease of access, and a scenic area. We want to be on the water for about 1-2 hours. Well behaved children are welcome.
The first event will be at Lake Wingra, as this meets our Thursday night criteria, and is always a fun event...Ron Inda, 245-0836.
