The List of Great Ideas

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • The List of Great Ideas
  • The List is out! 

    Based on our last meeting at Mick's, a lot of you came up with some great ideas!  This is what we were hoping to accomplish to make 2012 a much better year!  If this list does not keep us busy, I don't know what will.

    In the discussion board in this meetup, Rick brought up a kayak clinic, to help start the year off safely, at Lake Anna in April (the warm side of the Lake). I'm ready to go!  Check out the discussion board for details, and other ideas to start off the year.

    We'll also start getting a list of dates scheduled for some of the ideas that were listed.  If there is anything to be added, suggestions/comments, let's put them on the discussion board by this weekend so we compile everything and start setting up some events in the near future . Look forward to everyone's feedback!

    Here are the great ideas . . So Far:

    Wow! I didn't realize it filled up that quick. I would like to sign up. Can we hook up at this event so we are not doing this solo?

    The Paddle for the Border event in Chesapeake, VA is scheduled for May 5. It is a 7 mile paddle from the NC to the VA border and is well organized with a shuttle service and post event picnic. This could be combined with a paddle around Virginia Beach area.
