Kevin & Anita Miller -- register at k.a.miller@mts.net .  20 people have registered as of May 28.

Time: Meet before 9:30 AM. Launch before 10:00.

Launch location: Happyland Park from the west end of Prosper Street. There is a large grassy area to launch from.

Description: We will paddle upstream to the culvert at the Windsor Park Golf Course, and then turn around and paddle downstream to the launch location (14K). Some of us may also then want to paddle downstream to Marion Street and beyond ... and back to the launch site. The Seine River within Winnipeg is fairly shallow and very popular, and there are dozens of potential locations to disembark if needed.
