A group of square dancers teamed with a group of kayakers and became Yakers and Dancers.  When the urge to go kayaking hits as many of the yakers and dancers get together and spend time on our local  Cypress Creek , which boarders The Club property. If creek gets low we find other local places to put in such as the mighty Singing River, our own Tennessee River, right in Florence. We put in at the Rock Pile and take out at McFarland or Sheffield. Come join us. We have plenty of kayaks and canoes to share before you make an investment.  You do not have to square dance or participate in any of the other activities to get on the water with those that love the water.
