A big thanks to Steven Kahlmeier for letting us know about the upcoming South Dakota Canoe & Kayak Association Annual Conference.  

Steven is the president of the SDCKA and is passionate about South Dakota outdoors.  It was a delight chatting with him about the SDCKA and all of the paddling options around the tri-state area.

I just recently purchased a kayak and am anxious to paddle some of the great spots Steven told us about!

If you're like me and are very excited about the upcoming canoe & kayaking season or you just want to dream of summer, you'll want to attend this event coming up on January 31st at the the Outdoor Campus in Sioux Falls.
