Join in the Fun with Boat Demo, Community Paddle, and Grilling Competion!

The Twin Rivers Paddle Club is a canoe and kayak club in New Bern. We are sponsored by the Craven County Recreation and Parks Department.

Join us on October 21, from 1 – 5pm at Lawson Creek Park for a “Boat Demo” conducted by the Twin Rivers Paddle Club (TRPC) in conjunction with a “Community Paddle” by the Craven County Recreation and Parks (CCR & P).

Both events are open to the public at no cost. Our boat demo has been a huge success every time we hold one, which is usually twice a year.

Club members bring their personal canoes/kayaks and gear (paddles, PFD’s, etc.) and encourage and assist newcomers to give paddling a try. They have the opportunity to try out as many different water craft as they like.

The “Community Paddle” is an actual canoe/kayak trip fully supported by TRPC. Club members paddle along with those wishing to enjoy a short trip on the water.

Along with these two great events, both the TRPC and CCR & P will be serving up refreshments. TRPC’s own, Chef “Bill” Sadler will be competing head to head with Craven County Recreation and Parks, Chef “Mark” Seymour, in a hot dog grilling competition!

Join in the fun, paddle one of our kayaks, and perhaps even become a member. Visit our website for more information!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
