Why a program on cold water paddling?
Because some of us paddle on warm winter days here on our local lakes, and on our summer vacations some of us paddle at locations with cold water year round -- Maine, the Pacific NW, California. Nearly every year somebody in North Carolina dies as a result of cold water immersion and inappropriate dress.  A balmy 70-degree winter day can lure us onto the 45-degree water dressed in shorts and T-shirt or sweatshirt. That can be a setup for disaster. 

Join us for a presentation by Moulton Avery, the founder and head of The National Center for Cold Water Safety on the hazards of cold water immersion. You may learn something that could save your life. 

See this March 8,2014 calendar post for the workshop Moulton did for us back in 2014.

Those 2014 photos have been recently uploaded to a new folder. Go to Photos & Videos > Photos > 2014 Cold Water Workshop with Moulton Avery to see them. 

A writer and photographer from the News and Observer were there. They wrote this article, "Water can be inviting, but in cold temperatures it can be deadly". The photographer shared many of his images with us which you can see in the photo album mentions above.

Let's spread the word about cold water hazards -- and cold water safety!
