As it turns out, the rivers are too dry for a pleasant trip, so we will meet at the Busse Lake Boating Center. This is accessed from Higgins Road; look for the sign on the south side of Higgins just east of I-290. (Map:

We will play water games, practice our paddling technique, get acquainted, eat lunch. You must have your own boat and paddles, and your properly-fitting PFD must be worn at all times on the water. Bring lunch, drinking water, and a change of clothes, which you can leave in your car if you wish. We plan to hit the water about 10:00 AM. Bring a chair for the lunch break.

The roster is limited to twelve boats (i.e., two paddlers in a tandem boat count as one), so let us hear from you soon. If you miss this one, however, another New Members’ Trip will be on the schedule soon.
