    WCHA Coastal Southeast Chapter
    "Spring" Gathering

    May 23-25
    Melbourne, Florida

    Canoe canvasing, working with sponsons,
    & canoeing the subtropical chain of lakes on the St. Johns River

    It may may not seem like Spring down here, but that's what the calendar still says, and the wildlife is plentiful. So please come join your wooden canoe friends and learn (or teach) canvasing techniques. We will be canvasing at least one canoe – a Carleton sponson canoe – so you’ll learn not only canoe canvasing but also how to install and canvas sponsons. If you have a canoe to canvas and you wish to bring it along, please let us know as soon as possible so we can ensure enough time.

    Schedule of events:
    Friday, May. 23: dinner and fun with friends, old and new
    Saturday, May 24: canoe canvasing, fellowship; lunch and dinner together
    Sunday, May 25: canoeing, birding, alligator watching on the St. Johns River; breakfast and lunch together

    If you're in the area, please stop by THIS WEEKEND for some fun in the sun with fellow WCHA members. Pop on over from Disney or Universal or the Kennedy Space Center - the rest of your group surely will understand your need for some wooden canoe time!

    Macky, I tried to send you a private message and got the reply that your private mailbox is full so cannot accept any new messages until some old have been cleared out. Tom McCloud
