Lumpy Waters Symposium

Paul Kuthe and the crew at Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe go far out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time and I'm pretty sure that was the case.  For me, it was 4 solid days of paddling this, paddling that.  Talking about paddling, actually paddling, reconnecting with other paddlers & meeting new ones.  There was a wonderful fresh energy this year dominated by first-time attendees, some of them having only gotten into kayaking this summer.  Considering the less-than-ideal conditions for new students, I'm greatly impressed with their stamina and positive attitudes in rainy conditions.  I didn't hear one complaint the entire weekend and, to me, it was refreshing to see everyone just enjoying their time around other paddlers no matter what the conditions.  The majority of folks were highly appreciative and understand all the work that was done to give them this opportunity to learn.

Well done Alder Creek!
