Kayak Trip on Broad River

Are you looking for an exciting kayak adventure to beat the summer heat? The Savannah Lakes Outdoor Adventure Club is coordinating a trip to The Sandbar in Bowman, GA to kayak the Broad River.
When: We will plan to meet at the SLV Recreation Center on July 8th and leave at 8:00 am. The outfitter will provide kayaks, paddles, and vests so there is no need to bring your kayaks. The river is not deep and there are a lot of rocks so it is better to use their kayaks for this adventure. The best way to travel will be to carpool and caravan to The Sandbar. I will print maps for anyone interested in traveling separately. Driving time will be approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. This will get us on the river around 10:00. We will finish by 3:00 in the afternoon.

Where: The Sandbar is located at 3435 King Hall Rd, Bowman, GA 30624. We will park at their office along the river and they will collect your money and shuttle kayakers upriver. From there, we will paddle back to their office where we can shower, change, and drive home. They have a small snack bar and some supplies in their store.

What to bring: We will plan to eat lunch along the river, There are many great locations where we can stop, eat, and swim along the river along the way. There are also many small rapids and short drops in the river. You and your belongings will get wet. Plan to bring the following items with this information in mind:
– Bottled water and/or drinks (no glass)
– Sandals or water shoes
– Dry bag (that seals out water) or softside cooler to carry drinks and lunch
– Water proof camera
– Sunscreen, sunglasses, and hat
– Towel and change of clothes for when we are finished paddling
– Lunch and snacks

Cost:$20 per person (includes kayak (sit upon), paddle, vest , and shuttle)

The paddle takes an average of 3 1/2 hours to complete so plan your snacks accordingly. The river runs at a good pace so paddling is mostly to keep you pointed downstream and to direct you through the rapids. The river is shallow and you can stand in most places. This is a beautiful river and provides a river experience with rapids that can be paddled by people of all experience levels. Great activity for your visiting guests to experience. Don’t worry, everyone can handle this trip!

You may call or email Tom Green at 706-318-9495 TomGreene@wctel.net if you have any questions or would like to go on trip.

  2. Hi,

    This looks awesome. Is it still running?

    I like the fact that kayaks are provided. Especially good for the beginners who want to test kayaking out, and also those who just want to paddle a new river 🙂

    Members of McCormick Car Club (MCC) –

    You may be aware that some members have taken to Go Karts in an attempt to recapture their lost youth. We have had two events and are planning a third for Friday, May 17.

    We have ten signed up; the limit based on the number of rental karts available. We have also planned a Driver’s Meeting to review high performance driving and car control, while having a great deal of fun. It will address track protocol including choosing a line, holding a line, giving up a turn, braking point, apex, on the throttle, passing, etc., and a Q & A session. We will call it ‘Road Racing 101’.

    You are invited to attend this meeting even if you cannot join us at the track this time.

    • ash supposedly able to block MIB?3. I think the appearances of Christian on the freighter to Michael and at the hospital to Jack are &#s0p2;oo28” moments that got filmed before the plot notion that MIB was posing as Christian was developed and are just going to live forever in LOTS mythology as inconsistencies that are too late to resolve.

    My husband and I want to thank all the First Responders who came to our house Monday night so quickly after my father became very ill and needed to be transported to the hospital. Right after my husband dialed 911 they were at our house. The paramedic that stabilized him took great care of him. We are so lucky to have so many caring and compassionate professionals in our community.

    Bear spotted!

    About 4:00 PM today, I was about 1/2 mile in on the Rails to Trails hiking path coming from the Barksdale Ferry entrance when my dogs and I came upon a large black bear with her two half-grown cubs. They were basking in the sun right in the middle of the trail. Silly me! I thought bears would be hibernating in a den at this time of year. As soon as I saw them, they saw me. We were perhaps 50 yards apart. I immediately started backing slowly away and pulling my dogs along with me. Momma Bear made a sound like a man coughing and stood up. She started walking slowly in the opposite direction and her cubs followed. She kept looking back to make sure we were really leaving the area. As soon as she was out of sight, we practically ran all the way back to my car. That was a confrontation I wanted no part of, dogs or no dogs!

    Folks, if you decide to walk in the woods alone, keep your eyes peeled. You never know what you might find. For want of a better idea, I’m thinking about carrying one of those loud air horns they use for boating emergencies or sailing in a fog. Any bear experts with suggestions?

    quite an entertaining show with the help of their production manager and
    daughter, Jessica.

    Here are some other highlights of the evening:

    Chuck Gresham presented the VSC (Vessel Safety Check) award to Dan
    Higgins who now has won this trophy for 3 years in a row, and who as the
    Chair for this committee, has challenged another examiner to take the
    lead for 2013 while vowing to assist in that quest. (More on Vessel

    Attention all Water Exercisers,
    So many are wanting these aquatic gloves and shoes that I am getting together a large order so that we get freeship for Speedo Aquatic Mitts with velcro close and open fingertips (S, M, L, XL) and Ryka (women’s) Aquatic athletic shoes. Both these items are the top quality available in aquatic equipment, for a discounted price, good choice of colors, and whole plus half sizes in shoes. The shoes are about $60, the gloves about $20, depending on how many are ordered (the more, the lower). They last more than twice as long as other brand equipment if they are rinsed in cool tap water and dried after each use. Sign up sheet for all your info at the AC front desk, or you can email me directly. Will place order in a couple of weeks around Feb. 4. Gloves offer both buoyancy and huge resistance equivalent to foam dumb bells if you use them correctly, and supportive athletic aquatic shoes are necessary equipment for anyone doing vertical aquatic exercise in shallow to transitional depth water (mandatory for diabetics), adding stability, intentionality, resistance and muscularity to all movement down and through the water.

  22. FYI for those who use Nitrogen in their tires or have an interest in using it. I had noticed that the tire store going into Lincolnton (from McCormick) advertised having available hydrogen. I went in today and sure enough they had it at a very reasonable prize. I had one tire low and they fixed the reason it was low and topped off the other three. The cost was $10 a tire. The good part is that they will top off the tires for the life of the tires for free. I have attached the store’s business card. I also found the store owner,Peyton, knowledgeable and very helpful.

    THE GARDEN SCOOP
    NOVEMBER ISSUE

    Focal Points
    Focal points can be used to add structure to your garden. They are the visual hinges of the garden design, the objects that draw the eye and lead the visitor towards them. A focal point can be achieved by careful planning, a well-chosen tree or a group of plants positioned to stand out in their surroundings. A birdbath or water feature, that prize winning “unique” piece you found and planted in from last months challenge, etc. A garden can only sustain a certain number however; a small garden perhaps one, and a larger one more, but in different areas. Keep in mind the proportions of the object to the size of your garden.

    FENCES
    What do you think of a fence? This is a great time of the year to construct one for your landscape. Fences can be open to show the view, or closed, to contain a space. It is essential that they should fit your garden and its setting. Some advantages are that they are cheaper than walls, quicker to build, and something that you can do yourselves. Think of two sections of split rail fencing at a ninety-degree angle in a corner of your yard. Now think of landscaping around it, fun.

    Cleaning Containers
    By cleaning used terra cotta containers before replanting or storing, you help prevent spreading plant diseases and pests. Use a stiff wire brush, scrape off soil and fertilizer residue, algae, and salt crust inside and outside the pot. Then scrub the pots with a 12-percent bleach/water solution and rinse well. To freshen up a pot, brush the surface with linseed oil using an old rag.

    Making Herb Vinegars
    These are so easy to make, and now is the time to be using the last of your herbs before they go to seed. Use 1 cup of fresh-picked herbs to flavor 1 quart of vinegar. You can use white, cider, or wine vinegar depending on your taste. Simply loosely fill a glass jar with clean herbs. Cover with vinegar and cap with plastic or a cork (don’t use metal). Store in a cool dark place for two to six weeks. Strain to remove the herbs when the flavor satisfies your taste.

    HAVE YOU TAKEN A CRUISE TO SOUTH AMERICA LATELY?

    OK, that’s our plan … that is, visiting Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile on a Holland America cruise. We know about the visa requirements in Brazil (flying to Rio) and have gone through their multitude of hoops to obtain the visa. However, Holland America is unclear about entry fees in the other three countries. Those countries do not require visas but have “reciprocity” fees for U.S. citizens. Holland America believes these are only charged upon entry at the airport (a flight into the country). If you have been on a cruise and taken a shore excursion from the ship into any of these countries, were you required to pay an entry or reciprocity fee? BTW: The rules seem to change as fast as the weather. Thanks ….

    McCormick Car Club Members

    Gold Rush:

    This coming Saturday is the Annual Gold Rush Festival and our club is sponsoring a car show as part of the festival. Historically MCC members Mike and Arita Morrett have been the driving force for the show

    and through their efforts the car show has grown in participation from year to year. The proceeds from the car show are donated to Charity and the 2012 recipient will be the local McCormick Food Bank.

    This year’s car show is expected to be the largest ever and as such we’ll need a host of volunteers to aide in its success. If you would like to participate as a volunteer, pls. contact me via email, we could use

    your help. In addition, if you would like to bring that special car of yours up to the show for public display, even though you may not be interested in having it judged, pls. do so. If you would like to get your car

    in the competition (judged) we would love to have you participate. The important thing for this activity is to HAVE FUN.

    There will be a follow up email coming to you this Thursday as a reminder, as well as additional detail re. the event. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Picnic @ the Lovely’s:

    We had over 20 members attend the picnic, with Pizza’s of different varieties along with salad and some tasty Brownies. I heard no one walked away hungry. I wanted to also extend a big Thank-You to the owner

    (Tim) of Michelle’s Pizza for giving us a nice break on the cost of the Pizza’s. Michelle’s owners are tremendous supporters of the McCormick Community. I would encourage you to support their establishment.

    Arita Morrett (car show organizer for the Gold Rush Festival) shared with us the organizational details of the show, the need for volunteers and the fact that while she and her husband Mike would normally

    handle the shows operation, Mike is experiencing some health issues which may not allow him to participate, therefore volunteers are even more important. Volunteers will mostly be involved with passive

    activities (nothing heavy/strenuous). Some members have already stepped forward to lend a hand, and we appreciate that very much.

    I will be sending out reminders in the near future re. upcoming events that you may enjoy, so stay tuned.

    That’s all for now…Mary and I look forward to seeing y’all at the Gold Rush.

    regards

    MCCC CHRISTMAS CONCERTS ARE ONLY FOUR MONTHS AWAY!!

    The McCormick County Community Chorus will be presenting their Christmas Concert at the AC on Thursday, December 6 (7:30PM) and Sunday, December 9 (3PM). .. Mark your calendars now!!

    MCCC will be starting rehearsals on Monday evening, September 10 at the McCormick United Methodist Church at 7PM and we’d love to have you join us!! There are no auditions, just a love of music! You decide what part fits you now.. Alto, Soprano, Tenor or Bass (Yes, some of our voices have changed over the years!) At the first rehearsal, we will be paying our dues ($10), collecting our music and catching up with each others news the first half hour and then start our rehearsal at 7:30PM.

    Do not feel you must become a member the first week, come by and join us and see how it feels. I have to warn you, you will be hooked!
    Jeanne is a lot of fun and very talented director who has a lot of patience to work with enthusiastic folks like us! I have personally become friends with lots of folks I would not have met otherwise, it is a good melting pot of not just SLV, but McCormick County (and some from Lincoln County).

    We are going to try something different this year and have rehearsals start at 7PM on Mondays and go until 8:30PM the first month, then re-evaluate if we like the change. That is a half hour earlier than we have been meeting and it might help with those having trouble concentrating since they are missing a kick-off on Monday Night Football or the latest Dancing with the Stars!!!

    Come, give it try.. it’s fun!
    And mark Dec 6 and 9 on your calendars right now!!

  36. McCormick Children’s Home Performance features former Savannah Lakes resident

    The McCormick Children’s Home will have a benefit concert, featuring former Savannah Lakes resident Ora Poole (soloist), the Hilltop Strummers (from Canton, Ga.) and the Garden City Strummers (from Augusta, Ga) at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2012 at the Savannah Lakes Village Activity Center. A love offering will be taken for the children’s home. After the concert there will be a complimentary ice cream social.
    Ora Poole is looking forward to returning to McCormick where she has frequently sung for different occasions since she and her husband, Jerome, moved several years ago to reside in Canton, Ga. She still holds such affection for the people of McCormick and surrounding areas who so graciously opened their hearts and worked so hard to help settle her family into McCormick when they came here after Hurricane Katrina. Ora spends lots of time in Ga., now ministering in churches, senior citizen homes and doing concerts, sometimes along with the Hilltop Strummers. Her other love is tennis.
    The Strummers, a group of mountain, (lap/hammer) dulcimers, is a satellite club of the North Georgia Foothills Dulcimer Association. Most participants were new to this instrument, but all desired the opportunity to play this sweet music with others. Needing instruments, members built 24 dulcimers from kits. This kept the cost low for folks who wanted to try playing. The formula worked.
    The dulcimer instrument first appeared in the early 19th century among Scots-Irish immigrant communities in the southern Appalachian Mountains. The design of the lap dulcimer, with its droning strings is reminiscent of the sounds of the bagpipe. “Dulcimer” comes from the Latin and Greek, and means “sweet music.”
    The club has grown from three to more than 40 active members.

    Joy of Life Discussion Group – Next Meeting Tues, August 7th at the Richters

    T’his week’s meeting was very inspiring and informative. Hope you’ll join us for our next meeting. Next topic is “Creativity- The Spark of Life”

    If you’d like to find out ways to have more fun, make your life more rewarding, deal with the negatives better, improve all your relationships, find new challenges, feel good a lot, be more positive and just plain be happier, come and be a part of our group. No experience necessary – (at being filled with joy) (sm). But people already happy are welcome too!! You might make others happier.

    We meet every first and third Tuesday at 11:30, for about an hour and a half.

    Some of the things that came out from this week’s meeting on Gratitude were:

    -Many people are the most grateful for loved ones and for the real satisfactions in life, not so much for material things.
    -There are so many ways to show appreciation and gratitude and it’s very important to express it to others. One little expression of appreciation can change someone’s life forever.
    -Receiving appreciation can be just as wonderful as giving it out. Think of an experience of expressing gratitude and another experience of receiving it from someone- so profound that you’ve never forgotten the feelings.
    -A letter or a phone call or even an email telling someone that you appreciate them or something they did can change someone’s day and leave you with a wonderful feeling.
    -Sometimes we’re most grateful for unexpected outcomes of situations that were not of our conscious choosing.
    -We show appreciation by taking care of ourselves, of others and of what we have.
    -Don’t look back at what might have been – it could have turned out worse.
    -We can be very grateful for the person we once were – that person might now be our best teacher.
    – Compose, add to and review often a list of all that you are grateful for. It comes in really handy on bad days.
    -We can be very grateful for our life’s path which took us where we never planned to go with people and experiences better than any we could have mapped out.
    -How often do we express deep, heartfelt appreciation to those closest to us?
    -Gratitude is an emotion ignited by thoughts and it changes every cell in our bodies, improves our health and the quality of our lives.

    Joy of LIfe Discussion Group meets tomorrow, Tuesday, July 17th at the Richters on Kingfisher Point.
    We’ve changed our time to 11:30 to accommodate people in yoga and other groups.

We’ll explore how true gratitude will enhance our relationships, extend our lives, fill us with contentment, make our lives easier and help us deal with losses. We’ll dig into the many ways we can find things to be grateful for in the beauty around us and the people and wonders in our lives and our world and how focusing in those things in life can change our whole being.

    Hope you can join us. If you have guests, family, friends who’d like to come, they’re welcome too.

We’re also open to using all available resources to enhance our discussions.

    If fresh “wild-caught” SC seafood is on your grocery list or palette, you will want to check out a new seafood vendor on 378 across from the former Diane’s Creations. They are open on Thursdays from 11-6. He is a former shrimp boat captain himself, with contacts on the coast, where he is getting it on a regular basis, and they are friends of ours. They do the running for you, you get to enjoy it in your own home. We don’t think you will be disappointed! We hope you will try them.

    LYRA, the vocal ensemble from St. Petersburg, Russia, will make a return engagement at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in McCormick on Tuesday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. If you attended their concert at Good Shepherd two years ago, you’ll recall their dynamic performance of selections from the Russian Orthodox Church, folk songs and classical music from Russian masters. The five members of the group are operatic soloists in their own right, and their appearance on May 1 promises to be as dynamic. Seating in the church is limited and we have sold more than 50 tickets already. So, don’t delay; order your tickets now because they will not be available at the door on the night on the concert. Prices are $15 each, two for $25. For tickets, call Dave Lorenzatti at 391-4339, Susan Davis at 391-5058; or the Good Shepherd office Tuesday through Thursdays between 9-3 at 852-4722.

    Just a BIG THANK YOU to all the ladies that came to lunch bunch yesterday!

    It was a truly a privilege to share with you my passion for Skin Care.
    While there may have been some misunderstanding in the beginning about the topic of Skin Care vs Cosmetics….I hope that you were able to glean something new and interesting to help you have healthier, happier skin. I loved your participation in the program…that’s what makes it fun for me.
    So, I’ll bet right now you are making your “Funny” faces, doing the exercises that we tried yesterday!!!!
    Remember…..all muscles are attached…so tuck those bee-hind muscles…smile..and take 10 years off your face! Happy Day!

    . While I understand that the neighbor link wants to keep the site just for person to person neighbor communications It is nice to see a portion of this site dedicated for local services
    To the services end, does anyone have a recommendation for a garage door company who
    does sales and installation of garage door openers?
    Totally off the subject, when do the hummingbirds come back? I would like to have our feeders ready. 🙂

    • Hi Libbi, Timmy Deason does a good job on installing garage doors. His number is 864-443-2841

    I have been an International Prison ministry called Kairos. I have been participating in it since 1994 or thereabouts. Its a total volunteer ministry and meets twice a year for training sessions for a 4 days preparation for service in the local Prison. We have two—2 day programs in the prison each year. We also meet with Inmate population who have graduated from the Kairos program the 3rd Saturday of each month. It is a very satisfying and rewarding program for volunteers to get themselves involved in. There are 6 of us villagers who are presently involved in this effort. We welcome all newcomers.

  58. Libbi McGreevy:

    Hi Pam & Theresa,
    I think a spa would be great and hold a lot of attraction for people in the village. I have a question. I have an adorable and loving Boston Terrier who lost her baby sitter when we moved from ca to here. Do you know of anyone local who takes pets into their homes to sit for them? We tried a kennel once for Lexi with disastrous results. Thanks,
    Libbi & Bill

    • Pam "Paisley" Davis:

      Hi Libbi & Theresa…keep the Spa comments coming!!!!!
      I have been trying for 3+ years to get this going. If enough folks want this perhaps it will actually come to pass.
      Please give me an idea as to what type of service you would take part in and try to be specific. Example: Body Wrap; Salt Golw; Sugar Scrub; Facials; Microdermabrasion; Manucures and Pedicures; Massage (we already have that ofcourse); Hair Styling; Hair Removal..ie:waxing.
      Lets just keep trying to get this done!!!!!

    COOKING OR DECORATING HINTS
    Always spread sandwich ingredients on bread before cutting edges – if you don’t there’s bread with nothing on it! Use an electric knife to take off edges.

    In most recipes if it calls for 16 ozs. of an ingredient, 12 ozs. will work just as well with no flavor change

    When baking cup cakes, cookies, most uncovered meats, turn pan half way through cycle – the back of oven is always hotter.

    Need to slice cake rounds? Use dental floss.

    Use a medium size punch bowl, add ice and you have a champagne cooler.

    Who know? Pair silver and silver-plate. Can also use pewter – it’s low maintenance. Don’t over-polish silver. Each time a thin layer of the surface is taken off.

    Create a pretty table. Gather throw away jars – jam, jellies, etc. Fill with candles of equal size or float votives; group on a pretty tray, maybe place a few pieces of greenery from your yard between the jars. Hurricane vases make beautiful containers for candles or flowers. Look in your china cabinet for footed, wide-mouth bowls – they work well with candles. Just make sure the top is wide enough for the candles you are using so they won’t smoke.
