LCKC would like to thank Richard and Connie Hagler for their many years of support to our paddling programs. The Haglers and their company (BBI Spreaders) have been the primary sponsors of the BBI Jr. Olympic program for the past 9 seasons (2011-2015). Without their support, the Jr. Olympic Program could not have been as successful as it has been in introducing paddle sports to our local children. Beyond our youth paddling programs, the Haglers have been supporters of paddle sports here at LCKC as club members and officers, as well as at the national and international levels with their support of USACK and numerous international competitions hosted at the Lake Lanier Olympic Venue. So once again, thank you to Richard and Connie Hagler for their many years of support, we are forever grateful. ... See MoreSee Less
