May Notes and Paddles
June Meeting
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 2nd. Avid paddler, Arthur Hebert of Gretna, LA will be our guest speaker. Arthur will be sharing his adventure of his 1998 twenty-day, 738-mile solo open-water crossing of the Gulf of Mexico. Arthur made this unescorted trip from Isla Mujeres, Mexico to the mouth of the Mississippi River in his 17' Eddyline Wind Dancer and dedicated the expedition to his daughter, Nichole, who was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis at the age of nine. The goal was not only to cross the Gulf but to make more people aware of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
