We will have two presentations.

Tracy Caldwell Becker, a Houston Canoe Club member and a member of several other clubs that keeps her very busy. Tonight we will get a look at a road trip to the Florida Keys, camping and kayaking along the way. Join us for some wonderful sites.

John and Anne Olden were active members of the club for many years, before they moved to Idaho several years ago. Their presentation will combine the best photos from two trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon in the Frank Church Wilderness of central Idaho. How exciting.

25.5 miles on an interesting stretch of the Brazos between Hearne and Bryan. Pace will be moderate so it will be an all day affair, with regular stops for exploration and learning about the river. This stretch is generally free from unusual hazards, but does have a few rocky riffles and one location where a sill of limestone extends across the river and may require a short portage at low water. Contact me if you are interested in participating.
