After Work Thursday Paddles
September After Work Paddles will meet at CAPTAINS QUARTERS boat ramp, $5 put in fee. If you plan to attend, plan to self organize as a group and get out on the water when you're ready. The usual plan is to paddle up Harrods Creek until you get to the first minor rapid, then turn around and come back. Quick reminder of a few things. Follow the laws, you don't have to wear a PFD but you are required to have 1 per paddler in the boat. Its best if you wear it however, in a car crash there is no time to buckle up. The same goes for your flotation. Carry your safety gear. A whistle on your pfd, a light, a knife are the basics. You are not required to have these but its a darn good idea. We launch at 6:30pm. Please be responsible for yourself, we will help you as much as possible if needed but ultimately your safety is in your hands.

What we're about

Meet other local Paddlers to plan trips and meetups, talk about local rivers, creeks, and kayak gear.

We are mostly beginner and intermediate paddlers, but all levels and ages welcome!

Trips we have gone on so far have been leisurely paddles on calm waters exploring lakes, creeks and slow moving rivers.

There is no membership fee, nor is there a ever a charge to attend events. We keep this possible due to our amazing sponsors Quest Outdoors and Skipping Fish boat school. They make gracious donations to our Christmas party every year in the form of prizes for the raffle, and use of their facility.

To remain active in our group simply RSVP to a minimum of one Meetup per year.

If you do not own a boat, we do have members kind enough to loan out kayaks on occasion. The best thing to do is just ask around or keep an eye out for anyone offering up a boat for use.

Although we are based in Louisville, we welcome members from all nearby locations, including a loyal following of active members from Southern Indiana.

Also - we will occasionally schedule informal, social meetups to get to know each other better, ask questions and gather ideas for future trips. Everyone is, of course, welcome (and encouraged) to attend.
