Veterans Day r
Nov 11 all-day

Nov 11; Veterans Day.  On April 6, 1917, the U.S. joined its allies–Britain, France, and Russia–to fight in the “Great War.” Under the command of Major General John J. Pershing, more than 2 million U.S. soldiers fought on battlefields in France. The war ended when Germany agreed to an armistice effective  November 11, 1918 (“11th hour of 11th day of 11th month”). This became known as “Armistice Day,” later “Veterans Day.”

Kayaking Session at Bender Pool, Cedar Rapids @ Bender Pool
Nov 17 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Kayaking Session at Bender Pool

Sunday, November 17, 4:30-6:30pm

 As a place to practice for the open water season, a pool is a good substitute to the harsh conditions involved with boating in the winter.  It also works well to refine skills under a controlled environment rather than out on a river itself.

This fall and winter, Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation and Linn County Conservation are teaming up to invite you and to promote kayaking with pool time at Bender Pool in Cedar Rapids, located at 940 14th Ave SE.

Drop in pool sessions for kayakers are being offered from 4:30-6:30 pm on Nov. 17.

Additional sessions will be held December 1 & 15; January 12 & 26; and February 9 & 23.  For additional details check in the upcoming newsletter as well as on our Facebook Page.  The fee is $10 per person per time at the door.

Minimum age is 10 years and everyone will be required to be in swimwear and a lifejacket. A helmet is required for those practicing rolls.  Youth must be supervised by an adult. Watch for our March 15 Paddles in the Pool program as well.

In case of inclement weather, the City of Cedar Rapids weather/events line is (319) 286-5700 – listen for the prompt on Bender Pool.  You also can consult the Wickiup Hill Facebook page and we will have that information updated as quickly as possible if it looks inclement.  Information about Bender Pool can be found by dialing 319-286-5790.  For further questions on the kayak/canoe sessions feel free to call us at Wickiup Hill at (319) 892-6485.
