Another Successful Fall Color Tour!!

Thank you to everyone for making today’s second annual “Swan Creek Fall Color Kayak Tour” such a great success ! Even with the morning temps in the low 30’s, the turnout was beyond expectations, over 26 kayakers enjoyed the bright sunny day paddling Swan Creek!.
Of the kayakers that joined us for the first time, most
of them learned about today from “The City Paper”, thanks to Allison Osman, writer of the Field Guide feature, who is active with NWORR.
Also thanks to Dave, Gary, Cindy ( providing the Tim Bits) and Amy, for helping launch all the kayaks!
Then there is the Commodore – John Sinkovic for taking pictures and keeping us in line! smile emoticon
See ya for the Swan Creek Spring into Green Kayak Tour!!

Thursday’s outing (Oct 1, 2015) is canceled!

Due to high NE 15-25 MPH winds with the predicted 55 air temperature at launch time of 6:30 and the sunset setting much earlier at 7:19! 

All those possibilities make it unsafe for our group to be out on the water, unless you’re Patrick from Falcon Sails and his “Sailors”, who thrive on wind!!
