July Meeting
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 5th, at 7p.m. in the Tensaw Theater at Five River's Delta Resource Center.  Russ Lea, MBCKC member, will present on a recent trip to Greece.  The understanding is that he has some beautiful photos!  Russ always presents with a bit of humor so there's sure to be some laughter too!

June Meeting Notes
Maggie Pyle did a great job at the June meeting presenting on Kayak and Canoe Racing!  There was a lot of group participation with many members asking Maggie questions about racing and about the 20' Stellar Surf Ski she brought which, by the way, stretched from nearly one wall to the other where it sat in front of the wide screen. 

General Notes
*Volunteers wanted to lead/conduct MBCKC meetings. Presently, September is the next available opening. If you would like to conduct a meeting, please contact Tracy Lannie, MBCKC coordinator, at 463-4233 or tracy@thelannies.us

*Harriet thought ordering Camelbak Bottles with the club logo on them was a good idea, and many club members agree. This is the Camelbak Better Bottle which is BPA-free. If there is enough interest, the cost to club members would only be $9 per bottle. If you are interested in purchasing a bottle, contact Harriet at: hvk1457@aol.com
