I thought I would put up a few pictures I took of the Grand Opening Event on Saturday. I have to verify if this is going to be called the Yorkville Outdoor Center or not. They have put a lot into their shop and have pretty much everything a kayaker needs as far as I can tell. Worth a visit here before hitting a big box store. You won’t get this kind of knowledge at one of those.
I’ll add more to this later. Will probably have a couple of more posts made about this. We’ll see how my week goes.
Also, the official word from Yorkville Mayor Valerie Burd about fishing the Yorkville Whitewater Course . . . it flat out isn’t allowed, ever. But there’s more details that might make up for that.
Had a great time Friday night at the Kendall Pub watching Kent Fords’ film Call of the River and got to meet some interesting kayakers.
After watching them play in the chute for a few hours, I know I can handle anything the Fox River or any other river around here throws at me while paddling a canoe or a kayak, I’ve done it. But I don’t think my back has the flexibility needed any more to be able to play around in this chute. Unless I don’t mind doing it upside down.
