Minnesota Paddler Newsletter

The publication of the Minnesota Paddler newsletter is transitioning to “on-line” only in 2014. You have probably known this change would eventually occur. The speed of getting information from our website is making canoeing schedules and announcements irrelevant for a mailed newsletter. Reading essays, trip reports, and informative articles on a screen is just not the same experience. Many members understand the reason for change, but will miss the decades long tradition. The Minnesota Paddler newsletter will continue to publish unique,regional information, uncluttered with ads. The content will include:  trip reports, editorial content, updates from the Club President, Board meeting minutes,reports from the Treasurer.
