We had another great year of paddling in 2018. I want to thank everyone who came out and paddled with us this year and even more so want to thank everyone who volunteered with their time to sponsor a trip this year. Without the help of trip sponsors, we would not have all of the great trips this club hosts each year. Look for announcements about the annual planning meeting early in 2019 for your opportunity to give input on what we will doing in 2019. If you have not sponsored a trip in the past, please consider do so next year. If you are not sure how to sponsor a trip, feel free to contact the fleet chairs or other board members, and they will be happy to give some guidance.
We had a great annual meeting on November 10th. Lonnie Bedwell gave an inspiring presentation about his life and adventures including being the first visually impaired person to kayak the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon (lonniebedwell.com). Brad Beaubien also gave a short presentation about the White River Vision Plan. We have solicited input from the club for input on the White River Vision plan. A summary of this input can be found in this newsletter. If you have and done so already, go the mywhiteriver.com and take the survey. The more input from paddlers, the more we will be heard.
See you on the water! - Duane
