Appleton Locks Paddle Wrap Up

ALocksTimeLapseThumbnailOur last public paddle event for 2015 was held Saturday September 26. We enjoyed outstanding weather and record participation with 219 participants paddling 184 canoes, kayaks and SUP boards. We launched just after 9:30 a.m. from Appleton's Lutz Park and passed through Appleton's four locks, then continued down the Fox River to Sunset Point Park in Kimberly. The last boat arrived a few minutes before 1:00 p.m. In addition to great weather and a start of fall colors, paddlers enjoyed viewing a pair of eagles and a few deer along the way. Pictures of this event are publicly available HERE.

North East Wisconsin Paddler Information

About NEWP: This is the web home of the North East Wisconsin Paddlers Inc. (NEWP). NEWP, is an ACA Paddle America Club with members from throughout north east Wisconsin and beyond. NEWP is formally organized as a social club (501(c)7).

The goal of the North East Wisconsin Paddlers, Inc. is to encourage and advance paddle sport education and safety. Whether it is whitewater, surf, canoes, stand-up boards or kayaks, we look to bring together like-minded individuals with whom we can share our passion for paddling.

Check out the rest of our website for information on our club - who we are and what we do! Several of our members have earned certification as whitewater or coastal sea kayak instructors and enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience with others. We offer classes in several northeast Wisconsin citites from November through April and several other activities or events through the paddle season. Many of our members also engage in informal weekly paddles in various locations, on inland lakes or onto Lake Michigan from Two Rivers or Sheboygan launch sites.

NEWP is proud to be a Paddle America Club of the American Canoe Association (ACA) and affiliated with American Whitewater.
