Public Kayak Demos -
YMCA Saturday December 19 and
Fox West YMCA
(Greenville) Sunday December 20
Our last public paddle event
for 2015 was held yesterday, 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.
