    What's a better reason to get out on the water other than just being Tuesday?  Well there might be a few, but Tuesday is good enough.  Canoe or kayak its a good time to paddle.   If there is an instructor onsite they will lead a paddle starting at 6:30PM.   If not then its a good time for an individual practice paddle on the Gorge.

    Since its a club paddle all federal and club policies must be followed.  Wear a PFD at all times on the water.  All participants must have basic canoe or kayak certification.

    If you require a club kayak for the canoesday paddles please send a request to: (note there is no ‘s’ after booking). We have a new policy this year regarding reserving kayaks for "canoesdays". Please email anytime after 6:00 pm on the Monday before the Tuesday paddle. We had problems last year where people reserved kayaks and then didn't show up on Tuesday night. In the meantime I had turned people down because the kayaks were booked.
