 Thanks to everyone who attended Sunday's WW trip planning brunch and meeting!  Special thanks to those who volunteered to lead one or more trips!

We still have lots of openings throughout the season, but especially critical are the open weekends in April and May when the WW is running the best.   Please contact me if you'd like to lead/coordinate one of the listed trips, or add a trip that has not been included.  Please let me know, especially for April and May what trips you'd like to lead before March 22nd so that I can update the schedule.  Of course, any time the mood strikes you, please post your trip on BOTH the forum and on the Wilmington Trail Club Paddlers group on Facebook.  A trip must be posted on the forum to be an official WTC trip.

The schedule for 2019 as of today is below:
