A Very Green Kayak Shop

A very big 'Thank You' to members of the paddling community for giving up their Saturday last to come paint Savannah's newest canoe and kayak shop.
It's very comforting to have such great support for this new phase at SC&K. We have been hard at it now since late January and the transformation of the building took a great leap forward. It has been a very enjoyable time for us. Many people, known and unknown, have stopped by and we are very excited about the future of paddlesports in this area. Finally, Savannah has a paddlesport enthusiast's shop !
So, did we paint the building Camouflage ?
Hell, no. Just a good old army green that blends into the scenery and stands out in the neighbourhood.
We will be building a couple of boat racks this weekend.... One of steel, one of wood. Boat displays are up, and so is much of the stock. The blu ray stereo and LED Tv are wired and matinees every Friday at 4pm.(byob) and Square Dancing - Sunday afternoons.
Canoes arrived today and the topless Indonesian good luck fairy hangs over the carbon bar. (Thanks Pat)
Just waiting on the sculptures for the gallery, which should also arrive this weekend. We'll get some pictures of the inside once we hang some pictures....there is still a fair bit of detailing to be done. Lighting is the last project on the list
Captain Zac and his All Stars will be playing at the opening party next Saturday at 6pm. Should be a great show. Please stop in for a pint and a chat about how we can best help facilitate your continued paddling experience.
See you soon.
N&K and the gang.
