President's Message

At this time we do not have someone who has volunteered to be TBSK President for 2016 (See page 6 of this month's newsletter - TBSK Officer Positions). If you are interested, please contact any TBSK board member.

Cooler weather means it is a great time to paddle. If the wind picks up too much, head to the rivers to paddle.

November Meeting

Pirates, panthers and a Princess. Fun in the Everglades! If you are interested in kayak camping in the Everglades or the Ten Thousand Islands, come to our November meeting to hear Andy Bartley talk through the equipment needed and explore the routes to take to fascinating destinations. Find a hidden hundred year old island graveyard. Visit and camp on islands previously occupied by a pirate and a Princess. Learn what is required to get to these historical sites and gain an understanding of kayaking in the Everglades.
