Happy belated Canada Day! I apologize, as we do. First time paddleboarding adventure for me with the Saskatoon HOME and Prairies North teams, at least a few of us who could get away from computers as we work on the fall issues. Many thanks to the bosses Amanda and Rob Soulodre and the people at locally owned Escape Sports for this nearly 3.5 hour 13 km paddle from Poplar Bluffs back to the city. A wonderful experience–if you haven’t tried it, do! So worth the time and energy, and possible lungful of river water. I was the only one who ended up #@! over teakettle in the water, but then again, I was the oldest of the group so someone had to take leadership.
