Good evening everyone!

In light of the most recent weather reports, I am going to go ahead and call off practices for Friday afternoon and Saturday. Some reports have the precipitation moving in around 3:30 and several schools in the surrounding area have already decided to close early and reschedule after-school activities. With the Governor declaring a state of emergency that will take effect tomorrow at noon, I feel that it is better to err on the side of caution.

Stay safe and stay warm! Practices will resume on the regular schedule next week unless we notify you otherwise.

Best regards,

Tracy Barth, President
Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club

Amazing how things can change in a year. This time last year we were dealing with flooding, this year we are dealing with an extreme drought. As you can see from the photos last year, there was a lot of debris that washed up into our cove. Many of these items were collected and disposed of but many items settled to the bottom of the lake; the things that we can't see make it dangerous to jump into the lake without the 10-foot water cushion we are used to having. Hope for rain in the new year so that we can reschedule our annual Polar Bear Plunge. ... See MoreSee Less
