Winter Roll Sessions
Winter roll sessions have started early this year due to popular demand. So far the turnout has been great and we are seeing new faces and seasoned boaters taking advantage of this great opportunity. Make plans to attend and work on the most valuable skill a boater has. If your roll is already solid then come out and help teach as we could always use the help.

National Paddling Film Festival
The 2016 NPFF is on the horizon so make plans to attend. This years festival is February 19-20 at Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. This event is a fund raiser for river stewardship and last year generated $11,300 for some very worthy causes. Check out the NPFF website by clicking here. and make plans to attend.
