Oklahoma Wildlife Expo 2005 - Aug 27 & 28
It is only natural that the inaugural posting for this new blog on Oklahoma Paddle Sports be an announcement for the big Oklahoma Wildlife Expo 2005 kicking off at the end of August.
This event to be held at the Lazy E Arena just north of OKC is going to be huge! Here are just a few of the cool attractions I am looking forward to:
Canoeing and kayaking with the OKC Outdoor Network!
The OKC Outdoor Network will provide canoes and kayaks and instruction for those wanting to try their hands at this exciting water sport. This Network of outdoor enthusiasts gives people who camp, hike, rock climb, canoe, kayak, cycle, mountain bike, and walk a way to make new like-minded friends. The event will include canoe/kayak instruction, safety lessons, and a chance to try out a choice of equipment to paddle around a shallow water course inside the arena.
Learn about the Oklahoma City University / Chesapeake Boat House
The OKC University/Chesapeake Boathouse group will have a booth and inform Expoer's about rowing events upcoming on the Oklahoma River in OKC.
Visitors will also be able to try out the rowing technique in a rowing ergometer and see a rowing shell.
