of the month for October - Colorado River paddlers getting ready
to launch from Arizona Oasis RV Resort
have Great News Paddlers!
Let's get together
and celebrate at our first Valley Wide Kayak Club meeting in
a year and a half next Monday, October 4 at 6:30 pm. We'll meet
in our same meeting room at Valley-Wide Recreation, 901 W. Esplanade
Ave. San Jacinto in the Mobile 1 Building next to the ball field
parking lot in the back of the property. When
inside a Valley-Wide Recreation building, masks are optional
if you are fully vaccinated for Covid 19.
We have a great program for
you. Our guest speaker for the evening is non other than James
Hermes, the team leader of the 2021 Bow South Expedition! James
will be making a presentation about his recent 12 day kayak
trip in Utah down the Green River through Labyrinth, Stillwater,
and Cataract Canyons. He will share some stories and photos
of the ancestral Puebloan dwellings and historical sites that
can be found along this river corridor. He will also be sharing
information on this year’s 2021 Bow South Expedition that
will begin at South Cove near the western mouth of the Grand
Canyon and end almost 500 miles south in the Gulf of California.

Rather than hold a meeting the first Monday
of every month at 6:30 pm, we decided to hold bi-month meetings
on the even numbered months ( February - month 2, April - month
4, June - month 6, August - month 8, October - month 10, December
Holiday party - month 12). This will make for less trips for
members and less preparation for board members. Our next meeting
is our Holiday party on Monday, Dec 6.
