March Meeting
The next meeting will be on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 in the Tensaw Theater at Five Rivers Delta Resource Center. Russ Lea, MBCKC member, will present on his recent kayak adventure in Belize. Anyone who has ever had the opportunity to hear Russ speak knows he is very entertaining and his presentation is sure to include non-kayak Belize adventures as well.

February's Meeting
February's meeting was another well attended meeting as members and guests came to enjoy Ron Smith's presentation on "Paddling Lake Huron's North Channel". Ron had a great story and some nice photos, including those of Paddling in Crappy Weather! Thanks to Ron for sharing his paddling tales with us.
