Last Official Skills Session of the Season - Hanson

Hi all,

As much we all wanted to savor and extend the summer we've had, its just about done..... Hopefully the fall will continue to favor us with good paddling weather.

Are folks interested / planning on attending one last Thursday in Hanson to cap off the season?

Let me know :D

Re: Thursday September 14 - Hingham

Hi all,

There's a chance I may get sucked into covering a 3:30 meeting, for my boss who is travelling this week. I am hoping for it to be rescheduled and for me to be in Hingham on schedule.......I'll know more this afternoon.

Enjoy the great afternoon, either way!

Thanks Ken,

Which parking area within the park are we meeting at? Did I miss the routes for the day somewhere? You can feel free to email if that would be easier.
