If you want to stay dry or just hang out on shore check out one of free clinics. We will be presenting: Where to Kayak in Texas, The Gear Necessities of Life & Kayak Trips & Travel. Bring your lawn chair or plan on competing in one of our after noon competitions. Starting with Boater X, then SUP surfing and finally Freestyle, you'll be cheering every one on!

We will finish the day with awards and prize give aways.

The river is 72 degrees so it is always nice – warm in the winter and cool in the summer! Don't miss kicking off your 2013 river time on the finest river in the state – our own San Marcos River.

See you there!
