April Meeting
The next meeting will be on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 7 p.m. in the Delta Hall Bldg at Five Rivers Delta Resource Center (directly to the left of the Tensaw Theater).

March's Meeting
Russ Lea presented on paddling in Belize.  His trip included cave kayaking as well as open water kayaking, including a paddle to the "Blue Hole" for snorkeling.  We also wished Russ farewell as he prepares to move to Boulder, CO for a new, exciting change in career.  Russ has supported MBCKC in various ways for several years, and he will be greatly missed.
