    Hi Mark & Tony! I'd like to join in but am a novice and both of you are such seasoned water guys. Some TCAS members I've met on separate events were asking about kayaking and other water events. With the weather warming up, would either of you help to organize some hands-on intro sessions for the novices in our TCAS group? Warmest Regards, Audrey

      Hi Audry, we should make a plan for having an intro class when the water is warm enough to play in. We could do a little intro session at a local lake, to learn some basics.

    Thanks Tony! I don't have my boys that weekend, so I'm leaning towards joining you!
    If you also like flat water and river trips, you should visit our little Facebook group. All are welcome! I originally set it up to provide an easy place for paddlers to invite each other for short-notice paddling, i.e.,( I'm paddling after work today, anybody want to join me?) Here's the link:

    I think we've gone past 70 members, it's been a nice success!
    Again, ALL are welcome!

    Hi Mark,
    let me know if you need a kayak to use for the day. I'm a whitewater canoeist, but i have a lot of friends with river kayaks.
    It is also a great park for hiking.

    and there is free camping!!

    I'd love to join, but I only have touring kayaks. Maybe I'll have to rent the additional gear required and give it a whirl. Keep me posted.
