Pelican Paddlers is a group of paddling enthusiasts ranging from the long term expert to absolute beginner. We welcome anyone wanting to take up or pursue an interest in kayaking and canoeing.
Meetings are generally held on the first Monday of every other month (even number months) at River Less Paddled on Ryan Street., Lake Charles at 6 P.M.. Paddle trips are decided upon at meetings and different members volunteer as trip leaders. Trips range from a few hours on the water to overnight ventures. Paddle sites include placid rivers and lakes, whitewater, and the open water of the Gulf of Mexico. For those of competitive spirit we also have a few good natured races.
Through the spring and summer months we meet on Wednesday evenings for informal get-togethers where we practice new skills, do a little casual paddling and some of the new members are doing some salfwalter fishing. Pelican Paddlers has something to offer members of all skill and interest levels. We hope that you will join us for fun and adventure in Southwest Louisiana!
The next club meeting will be November 5 at the Ward Three Recreation Center on Lake Street. The meeting will start at 6:00PM and will last about one hour ...
