Trip Reports

May 27 Upper Platte River

Lois Goldstein | Published on 5/27/2021
People: Lois, Harold, Marlene (with Marv as shuttle bunny), Sara, Jocelyn, Mike R, Brad, Tom, Mitch and CJ (Carol)

It was sunny, but cold! Tom capsized and could attest to the chilly temp of the water.  CJ learned a lot about reading the water and general paddling tips.  Sara was gracious and transported the person who was late, all the way home. Mike helped out as sweep - I can always count on him!

Eight of us had lunch afterwards at Papa J's in Honor.
