2013 Annual Spring Gathering

Once again, Roads Rivers and Trails has graciously offered to host our Annual Spring Gathering to kick off the
2013 kayaking season

Many thanks to Brian and Emily!

 

What To Expect - The highlight of the gathering this year will be the results of our 2012 Photo Contest. Out of the 3,357 photos posted on our web site from 118 TSK events, 228 exceptional photos are currently being evaluated, by a panel of TSK judges, for prizes to be awarded at the Spring Gathering.

Watch for a special announcement for how every member of TSK will have a chance to participate in a special photo award to be given at the Spring Gathering.

Pot Luck Dinner - We had a great spread last year...in typical TSK fashion...and let's do the same this year as well. Bring snacks, entrees, drinks, and whatever is getting kayaker-moldy in the fridge.

There's question for you to answer when you rsvp...all about how you're going to help with the Gathering.

2013 Wish List - Well, the goat sacrifice last year sort of worked but mother nature had other plans when it came to filling up our rivers and streams. So, we made the most of it with some interesting and new ideas that still made for a great year on the water. Many thanks for everyone who helped plan and bring about a wonderful 2012 for Tri-State Kayakers.

Bring your ideas and post them on the board...then we'll do a communal rain dance for great water in 2013,

Come on down to Roads Rivers and Trails

Let's shove off for another great year

with

Tri-State Kayakers!

    The slacker that can't come tonight has a couple of questions- 1. depending on the weather next Saturday - anyone up for some time on the water? 2. I was going to ask the TSK family tonight - can someone help with written directions to the fastest way from downtown to East Fork? I tried a couple of different ways last year at rush hour - but it took 90 minutes or so. Thanks and have fun tonight!!!

      Hey Mike, Check the map, But from the north on 275 it is Milford/SR. 50 exit, go east to 222 south. this will go to SR 32 or slade rd or SR 125 depending on Put in ramp. From 471 south, Take the second New Richmond exit to go East on SR 52. Not sure how, but back roads it up to SR 222 north. which hits SR 125 at the stoplight which enters the East Fork state park. Again it depends which ramp we are launching. Good luck!
