Congratulations to Sherri
Sherri Mertz (on the right in photo above) is a well respected local paddler and instructor. She also happens to work at Laacke & Joy whose downtown store sells paddling equipment. This past weekend was their annual Paddle Fest which was, as far as I could tell, a great success. Sherri, as usual, had carefully assembled a crew of competent safety paddlers and instructors who were all happy to volunteer in support of Sherri. During the two day event, many many folks, of all ages, got to try out a kayak for the first time.

On Sunday morning, a group gathered at our South Shore launch point for a paddle across the outer harbor...then up the Milwaukee River to the main store where we had breakfast before the test paddling resumed.Tomorrow, I will have a few more comments and photos on this event.

Paddle safe...
