Hi Everyone,

For those new to the group, i dont like to have events when the water is colder than the 45-50*F range,
So im holding off till its good enough for the beginners or even the first timers ever in a kayak..

Yes some of us have dry suits and wet suits..but most dont and most dont even know NOT to wear cotton yet..or for that matter ..never ever cotton on the water for our kinds of paddles. Poly or Fleece = ok..but dont worry..we will tell ya why and we will save you if you fall in prior to knowing why.. we are a learning and explaining kind of group as we go along..

Bolton Lake is perfect for the intital paddling event for us, it has a good launch area, good parking , its really only about 10 minuts from hartford, (end of 384),

we will demonstrate a few safety things, and the like, we check out all the new stuff we got over the winter, and we practice a bit too, then its the barbie-Q after to talk ome more..

But before the season starts, many members also get into shape by walking and the like.. thay are also on my and others sites for a lot to do other than Kayaking Kayaking kayaking..LOL,, yak yak yak, sounding like PopEye Right.. not here..LOL,
Kevin and Janice also has a good Hiking Group to get you into good C.V. shape for paddling. its the hartford hiking group on meetup.

Just check out some of my events on my other site, if it interests you sign up..


see ya all soon..
