Maybe it should be "March showers bring April flowers"?

At any rate, the gardeners have been hard at work, and Sebago's looking springy!

Staten Island Paddle May 4th

Tony and Walter have planned a wonderful paddle on Staten Island Sun. May 4th. It is in Raritain Bay from the Confrence house to Lemon beach suitable for paddlers of all abilities.

We will start at the pre- revolution Confrence House and continue on a paddle that will not feel like we are in NYC. Hopefully we can arrange a tour of the Seguine Mansion at our lunch and turn around spot, Lemon Beach. Please contact Tony or me if you are interested.

Jamaica Bay Kayak Fishing Tournament May 3rd and May 4th

The Fifth Annual Jamaica Bay Kayak Fishing Tournament will be held on Saturday, May 3th, 2008. Last year's tournament was a great success, even though bad weather hindered the actual competition, over 200 kayak fisherman joined in on the many activities and the pre-fishing days had anglers enjoying the cooperation of all three targeted species - bluefish, striped bass and weakfish. More than 60 people attended the kayak fishing demo and learned about this great sport.

Even if you don't fish, this is a great chance to try out kayaks...many kayak companies will be there to let you demo kayaks, even the Hobie with the foot pedals.
On saturday is the contest, on sunday is just a fun day, with demos, etc.
