A Note from the Commodore

Hi Folks,


If you are reading this, then you are no doubt enjoying another issue of the Waterline, the showcase of the Houston Canoe Club. I know you share my appreciation of Linda Gorski, John Rich and the many contributing authors and photographers who make it happen. It also means you are enjoying our new website, so thanks to Greg Walker and all you others for helping to make his happen.


2010 has been another great year, highlighted for me by the continuing generosity of our members. With all you folks giving time and treasure, it’s easy to see why the Houston Canoe Club is so well respected in the paddling community. I can’t say enough about my fellow officers who work so tirelessly and faithfully to conduct the business, organize community outreach, and contribute to special events.  Our trip leaders are the heartbeat of the club, those folks with so much passion around paddling  they go out of their way to share the joy of paddling. Finally, I would like to offer special recognition to our Conservation Committee, chaired by John Bartos. I am very proud of all those who serve on this committee, you continue to have a disproportionate effect on conservation issues in Texas and beyond.


It is a distinct privilege to serve as the Commodore, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support. I’m looking forward to a safe, fun, and active New Year.



Regards,
Ken McDowell
