Hello, Join Constantin for a private Non-HASK training event. Join us this beautiful Friday for a couple of hours of paddling in the middle of the day in the great pine forest of Sam Houston National Forest at Cagle Recreation Area. Cagle Recreation Area, located on the shores of Lake Conroe (north of Houston off I-45) offers great fishing and water sports access, has a concrete boat ramp, miles of hiking trails and two camping loops with full-service RV sites that offer drinking water, electricity and sewer hookups plus a tent pad, lantern post and fire ring. It is a very nice setting if you would like to spend the night camping at Cagle. There is a $5 day-use-fee (best to have $5 cash). Restrooms are available. We will take several short paddling trips 1-2 miles long each to get a feel for several different kayak models and their comfort level and handling abilities. We will discuss, and compare and contrast features and designs in building, materials, etc. This is a family friendly event, kids are welcome to attend, and guarantee that besides having fun, everyone will learn something new. We are going to bring out for you to test on water over a dozen of touring kayaks, sea kayaks and tandem kayaks. To learn more about this event, go the the Meetup group link below: https://www.meetup.com/outdoor-adventures-kayaking-training-tours/events/278183873/ We will be responsible and apply Covid-19 safety practices by keeping distance from one another or mask up, by minimize handling of shared equipment, and by keeping the event participation low. Bring with you half-gallon drinking water and a snack. Dress in synthetic clothing that can dry easily. Large brim hat and longs sleeves can protect you from sunburns. Your shoes will get wet. Bring with you and leave in the car a towel and a complete set of clothing to change into, should be needed, at the end of the event.
