Mecklenburg Regional Paddlers is a Charlotte-based Internet community for kayakers and canoeists. The MRP is a "do-it-yourself" club for friendly people looking to meet other paddlers to organize private trips, swap gear, learn to roll, or just share war stories over a brew. It's a "non-clubbers club" with no officers, no dues and no bylaws. (No kidding!)
Participation is FREE, and leadership opportunities are there for the taking. We welcome your suggestions; better yet, host a party, start an annual event, organize a CPR class or lead a whitewater trip. There's no need to ask permission, just do it!
If you live in the greater Charlotte metro region -- whether you paddle flat water, sea water or whitewater -- you're welcome to join us at our weekly practice sessions or monthly social get-togethers. If you're looking to get into the sport, we can help -- but you'll need your own boat and gear, and we recommend taking a class or hiring an instructor to learn the basics.
"Welcome to the MRP and See You On The Water!
