Skills July 2nd

As you may have seen Hanson / Camp Kiwanee might be closed to us. I have not been able to verify access for this week. That being said, it might make sense to plan on an alternative location for this week, assuming folks are looking to participate in Skills. Please post your interest in attending th...

Re: 16' Ranger Canoe

Hi Romaine,

Have a colleague at work that might be in the market for a Canoe.

Could you send some details and a photo, I can pass it along.

Age, and photo would be great.

Hope you are doing well!

It has a large, paved, public parking lot and a small clean beach scrubbed by a stream next to a concrete ramp. The lake is deep and clear, with som...

Re: Hingham 6/11 or maybe change?

If you don't have an alternate paddling location, perhaps we can do a few Skills nights back to back.

Open to go with the flow, I don't mind the wind but understand it can be a drag.

Happy to do another skills night, at a location that suits folks.

Last Thursday, I saw a "first", at least for me.

As Abby, Steve and I were making a lap around the Reservoir, a Bald Eagle flew along our direction right overhead.

So large, and majestic, never thought I'd see that so close to home. Truly a special moment we were lucky enough to see.
