October Notes and Paddles
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 2nd, at 6:45pm in the Long Leaf Room/Delta Hall (immediately to the left of the Tensaw Theater). We will hold our 4th Annual Photo Event, "Through the Eyes of a Paddler", along with a potluck dinner. This year's event will be a Photo Exhibition, not a photo contest. Bring your photos and a dish to share, and come enjoy the evening. Please note time and place change for this special event.
1. Flora / Trees
2. Landscape / Waterscape

4. Animals / Wildlife
Photos can be previously submitted photos from past contests or new photos. Photographs must be taken while on a paddle and can be in color or black and white. Photos must be no larger than 11X14 and cannot be digitally enhanced/altered. Bring your mounted /framed photo to the November meeting!
October Meeting Notes
Thanks to Bob Andrews for stepping in when we had a last minute cancelation from our guest speaker, Russ Lea. Russ will give his Bowron presentation at the December meeting. Bob Andrews had a lovely slide-show presentation on paddling the Okefenokee swamp.
Congratulations to Maggie Pyle, MBCKC member for placing third in her division in the Phatwater Challenge, a 42.5 mile race on the Mississippi River. Hats off to all members who participated in this race!
