This sounds fun, particularly as all my local lakes are frozen solid. Do you have any skill/gear requirements? I am an intermediate paddler (no roll, but can self-rescue), i wear a dry suit for winter, and would be paddling a Necky Manitou 13 (rear bulkhead only).
I would love to join some weekend. I know some groups require 15" or longer boats, but I cannot rehab my latest purchase until Spring (warm weather for new seals).
