We began with 4 Sturgeon Virgins and 4 Sturgeon River Tramps.
Terry, Linda, Babs & Greg plus Jackie, Tracie, John & Lois
*Eight kayaks/ Eight spray skirts
*Lunch at Rondo Bridge
* One sunken tandem kayak (a rental boat) pinned underneath a log jam - the occupants on shore stated they were nurses, so they were OK.
* Terry went out with Eddy all day but broke it off by the end of the trip
*Linda re-named the river "Eddy Spaghetti"
*John thoroughly cleaned out the inside of his kayak while demonstrating leaning into an obstacle. He said "6 inches of water" but it could've been less.
*Babs and Greg enjoyed their new play boats and modeled some very spiffy neoprene spray skirts.
*Tracie learned not to let your attention lapse for even a split second. And a good spray skirt, along with a strong hip snap can save your bacon.
* Jackie learn NEVER take your glasses off and leave them on your boat while moving it. They fall off and you have to go on a glasses hunt after kayaking all day. (But they were found)
*Lois helping all the "Sturgeon Virgins" through many tangles of twists and log jams...
* All in all, fun by all and now Just 8 RIVER TRAMPS!
We all survived the Sturgeon River!
