Happenings!

Hello Paddlers! I would like to invite you all to Lava Yoga in Lawrence to a Community yoga class on Saturday November 11th at 11 a.m. The class is $7 if you don't already have a class card or are on a payment plan at the studio. As a bonus Up a Creek will be offering $10 certificates towards a float in 2018. Whether you've tried Lava Yoga or have been wanting to try this is a great opportunity on a chilly and rainy day in Kansas to take a yoga at this new studio. I will be leading the class. It is my goal to get 50 friend's, yogis and paddlers in for this class! I hope to see you on Saturday!

So how many of our friends have been on a river trip with Up a Creek Canoe & Kayak Rental? They do paddle trips, overnights on the sandbars....and YOGA, yes YOGA on the sandbars! They are a great partner for the river and we are so thankful to have them back as a sponsor for BEER OF THE KAW! Located in the Lawrence, Perry/Lecompton and Topeka area, Up a Creek is dedicated to providing you with memorable water outings. Whether it’s an afternoon or all day float or an overnight campout on a sandbar, when you paddle with Up a Creek “If you have a bad time, It’s your own fault!” Be sure to stop by and talk to them tomorrow at Beers of the Kaw....start planning your river experience for 2018!

As a native Kansan I find the Seasons hard to read. Some days feel fall like and others more like summer. This Saturday is forecast for an 80-degree day and the river flow rate is forecast for 6000 CFS. It's the makings for an absolutely excellent day to get out on the river. Join uncle Ron and I as we go on a Jays float to see if the foliage is starting to turn in the trees and see if we can maybe get a little bit more of that summer tan. ... See MoreSee Less

Join the 3 Amigos on a Fall day on the Kaw. Mike, Emmet and Craig are bringing their shinaigans back out for a Fall river adventure. Fall is here as the foliage in the trees is beginning to turn from green colors to rust, yellow and brown hues. The days are cooler and not as hot for paddling but don't let that dissuade you from seeing the Kaw in transition from one season to the next. Lots of laughing, reminiscing​ and a few cold ones to remind us, like the seasons, some things are bound to change and some things never do! ... See MoreSee Less

UAC held it final yoga class for 2017 on the Kaw yesterday. It's always a great time on the Kaw to paddle and Ambika Selvan lead a awesome Hatha class. The sandbars always add an interesting viewpoint to ones yoga practice and for me it was a reminder that when life shifts underneath you (much like the sand under my mat and feet yesterday) you need to shift with it. It was a great class, thanks to Ambika and the other Yogi's that joined to make another Kaw Adventure meaningful. Looking forward to more yoga classes on the Kaw in 2018.
