    Our focus for this meeting will be to review the paddling calendar for the year and fill it with local trips. There are 61 weekend days between April 1 and November 1. Let's fill each one!

    • If you've got an idea for a new trip, bring it.
    • If you want to see a trip from year's past come back to the calendar, bring it.
    • If you want to make sure your favorite day trip makes the cut, let your voice be heard...you've got to be here!
    • Need skills to do the paddle you've been dreaming about? Come to the meeting and let's talk about getting a class on the schedule to get you there!

    The club will provide pizza, because food always makes everything more fun! Be sure to RSVP so we order the right amount.

    This program will be held indoor at the warren Tavern in Warrenville, IL. This event will precede the PSC Pool Party at Naperville North High School. Please make a day of it by joining us for both programs.

    Details:  Join us for a two-hour skill-builder session where we will play around in boats winter open pool session at Naperville North High School. 

    Some will choose practice assisted and self rescue techniques, others will play with dirfferent strokes, others might just want to paddle around the pool and watch along. This is not a structured class but is an opportunity to practice skills with support. This program is perfect for paddlers who are looking to refine their skills. These techniques are used when in deep water where shore access is not immediately available. We will not be practicing river rescue technique (i.e. throw bag use, entrapment, pinned boat, etc.)

    If you are bringing your own boat, it must be completely free of leaves, dirt, etc. before entering the pool.

    Participants must wear a properly fitted PFD. You are encouraged to bring your own boat and paddle. Whitewater kayaks and paddles are available for rent for $5.

    Payment of $10 for the pool session time to the Naperville Park District (cash only) is required on-site to participate.

    Details: 
     

    Once again, we'll be heading south in early spring and paddling many of the fine rivers in Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas.

    We will again be based out of Twin Bridges Canoe and Campground (http://twinbridgescanoe.com) located on the North Fork of the White River about 20 miles west of West Plains, MO.

    Twin Bridges has cabins, camping, and an RV park lodging choices; and some meals are available at Twin Bridges. The cabins generally have at least a kitchenette, dorm refrigerator, heat, a bathroom and shower. The cabins vary, but rent for $200 a week. Let Twin Bridges know that you are with the March paddling group.

    Rivers likely to be paddled may include:

    Big Piney River, MO

    Current River, MO

    Little Piney River, MO

    Little Piney Creek, MO

    Jacks Fork River, MO

    North Fork of the White River, MO

    Sugar and Indian Creeks, MO

    Spring River, AR

    Eleven Point River, MO

    Bryant Creek,, MO

    And others depending on water levels.

    Additional information about these paddles, accesses, distances and routings are in the wonderful book, "A Paddler's Guide to Missouri".

    Expect our first paddle on March 14 and our last no later than March 29. Since this will be early spring paddling, extra warm synthetic or wool clothes are essential; and, if you already have one, a wet or dry suit might be handy. Bridges are far apart, the roads are roundabout and cell phone service is spotty, especially on the rivers.

    The rivers and creeks are beautiful, but often twisty and obstacles common. Best to come prepared. Under these circumstances, intermediate paddling skills are required. If you have the skills, then I hope you consider joining us in 2020 for as long as you can.

    Please email me if you plan to join us in early spring paddling in Southern Missouri. Include in the email your:

    1. Planned arrival date

    2. Planned departure date

    3. Cell phone number and email or address

    4. Alternative contact person and how to contact them

    Thanks for your interest. Greg Vitale
