Re: Stay healthy, but keep planning for the Season

Sounds like a plan!

I'll assume Skills would start in mid May.

Look for posting towards the end of the week.

Again, the location(s) can be flexible for those who wish to participate.

Stay well everyone!

Happy to move the Skills location to where ever folks would like to go. Alternates to Hingham are also welcomed. For those w...

Thursday's

Greetings all,

Between Jury Duty and work the last few Thursday's have been preempted my participation.

Is there any desire to schedule additional Thursday paddles - practice?

If there is great, if not, no worries.

Re: Skills - August 15 2019

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.
