Fleet Captain Dave Kitson's complete Excel spreadsheet member mileage log for 2013 can be viewed by clicking  here..
Note: This report includes only people, places and miles paddled on club-sanctioned trips.  It does not include paddling done by club members on non-HCC trips.  Thus, the activity level by club members is actually higher than what is shown here.    

Fleet Captain,
