A heads up to all about the 11th Annual Paddle Day at the Indian Creek Nature Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Saturday, February 24, 8:30 to 1 PM.

This is an annual winter presentation and get together event that draws about 75 or so and is also attended by the IDNR, area paddle related agencies and a few local vendors. Last year we had a pretty good BWCA.com turn out with a great Wing Night at a local establishment.

Here is some details on the event:
Join us at Indian Creek Nature Center for the 11th anniversary of Paddle Day! This event aims to educate and inspire the community to get out on the water. Look forward to a variety of activities, including guided naturalist snowshoe hikes, a multitude of exhibitor tables, door prizes and meeting other local paddlers. Presentations by guest teachers include talks about safety and technical movement, local water to paddle, regional paddle expeditions.

A full schedule has not been not been released. Here is their link:

This link is not accurate. The verbiage is from last years Paddle Day but the start and stop time is accurate. I contacted Indian Creek and they will be correcting their web site soon.

Hope to see the BWCA group again for a Wing Night.

Hi Dick, I am planning on going. Wouldn't be surprised if Vern Fish is scheduled to talk about one of his trips... always good presentations. Ray T

Hopefully I will be there Ray. I still have some sausage left and the new batch may be ready by then.

Add one more for the day and wing. The morning start is earlier leaving more time to swap lies at some local watering hole afterwards.

Sounds good but if there is any good ice, I'll be ice fishing.

I plan to be there for Paddle Day and any wing night activities later.
Hopefully Vern presents again, I am intrigued by far north trips... would love to do that some day!

Well,Gary, there is an opening... Hope to see you there.

I'm not sure if I can make the paddle day event but planning on the wing night, just tell me where and when

Sorry, I will not be able to attend Paddle Day in Cedar Rapids on Feb 24th.

I will be returning from vacation with my wife the evening of the 24th.

Bummer. I have made the past several Paddle Days and have enjoyed the event. But most of all I have enjoyed hooking up with other BWCA.com members. The beer has always been cold and the conversation even better.
