  • Wild Bill, If we get enough participants would you teach a C1 class instead of OC1?  Is mixed OC1 and C1 and OC2 an option or do you want just one type of canoe?  Jo

  • I just paid my MWA dues…but I am not sure I got the ACA membership on the same transaction.  Is the website updated for that Paddle America change?  Thanks Jo
