CAA had an active year of paddling trips in 2022. The year begin with a few Jan/Feb winter trips for the hardy, and picked up steam in March when the Thursday paddlers went into action. By April the drysuits were packed away and the streams were full with the spring run-off. May saw the start of the Sunday and Wednesday Evening Paddles. June through August the calendar was full with multiple trips each week. Sunday Paddles continued into early October, and Thursday Paddles concluded the Thursday before Thanksgiving. Pick-up trips continued until late December for those impervious to the cold.
For the record CCA ran 143 trips, on 35 streams, organized by 31 trip coordinators, with 1119 participants, totaling those on each outing.
