Programs for 2017

Who Owns Water is the title of this evening’s excellent documentary. We usually associate water wars with the arid American southwest, but our green eastern half of the country is no longer immune to those problems. This film tells the story of Georgia’s, Alabama’s, and Florida’s over-committed Chattahoochee/Flint/Apalachicola river system presented in the context of two brothers’ canoe journey down those rivers from source to sea. It is informative and engaging. Do come. You will like it.

The Canoe Movie (#1) is this evening’s choice. Canoe & Kayak Magazine has produced two videos featuring that segment of the whitewater tribe who insist on taking on the challenge with one blade, on their (often sore) knees, and in boats that fill with water. We will screen the first. It may just make a believer out of you.

Call for future programs

We are always looking for new talent. We are always looking for ideas. If you take pictures or videos and would like to share them, do not be shy. It can be distant locales or you local favorites. If you have a talent to share, then teach us. If you want to share an alternate outdoor sport (like hiking, backpacking, caving) we would enjoy that too. The program chair would like to hear from you (, 301-585-4381). I eagerly await.
