Notes from the November 6th Meeting
There were approximately 15-20 persons who dared to come out in the chill of the night for the meeting which was led by Fritz. Many important safety-type issues were discussed; we all shared important pointers that ranged from wearing PFD’s to appropriate clothing suitable for the weather and environment for which one is paddling.
