    Canoesday!

    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.  This is a drop in time for members to paddle not a leader organized trip.  We will try to have canoe and kayak instructors out most nights if you need advise on a particular stroke or skill.
