October Notes and Paddles


November Meeting
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.

Categories include:
1. Flora / Trees
2. Landscape / Waterscape
3. Boat (with or without paddlers
4. Animals / Wildlife
5. Birds
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.
