March 29, April 19 meetings to explore creation of paddling club
MONROE, Wis. — The Friends of the Pecatonica River Foundation (FPRF) will host informational meetings about starting a canoe and kayak club in southwestern Wisconsin and northwestern Illinois at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 29, and 7 p.m., Thursday, April 19.
The meetings will be at the Monroe, Wis., Public Library, 925 16th Ave., Monroe, Wis.
The purpose of the meetings is to determine the level of interest in a paddling club in the stateline region. More than 565 canoes and kayaks are registered in Stephenson County and more than 5,500 in the six-county region of northwestern Illinois and at least 5,000 in the six-county region of southwestern Wisconsin.
Discussion at the meetings will cover “Learning a ‘Lifetime Sport’”; points of access on the Pecatonica, Sugar, Rock, Kishwaukee, Platte, Plum and other rivers in the area; joining the American Canoe Association; and a PowerPoint presentation about “Illinois’ Friendliest Paddle.”
