We kick off the 2018 Get Outside EXPO with a night to remember as Schlafly presents the first of our 2018 Al-Pint Night Fundraisers. Jackson Kayak and Alpine Shop invite you to join us at our Kirkwood location on Friday, March 2, 2018 from 6 to 9 pm to raise funds for the Missouri Whitewater Association, Team River Runner - St Louis, and the St Louis Canoe and Kayak Club to aid their continuing efforts to encourage the growth of paddling and the protection of our waterways.
$10 at the Pint Night gets you a custom pint glass, plus two free pours of some fantastic Schlafly Beer. We have a total of 175 pint glasses. Once we sell out, we're out!
We'll also be featuring one of Alpine Shop's favorite food trucks, the STL French Quarter Food Truck so you can grab some grub while you're here with us. Bring a lawn chair and sit and relax with us for the evening!
The MWA is a public organization which exists to encourage the growth of paddling as a beneficial recreational sport and a recognized competitive sport, to teach paddling skills, river safety techniques, first aid, and outfitting, to sponsor river trips and other outdoor activities, and to educate club members and the general public about the sport and about river conservation. The MWA will be hosting the Missouri State Whitewater Championships on March 17-18 on the St. Francis River near Fredricktown, MO.
Team River Runner - St Louis (TRR) with ST. Louis VAMC gives military veterans and their family members an opportunity to find health, healing, and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports. The benefits of TRR have as much to do with social support, finding emotional strength and re-creating personal identity as they do with athletic activity.
The St. Louis Canoe & Kayak Club supports canoe and kayak related activities, trips and educational programs. The Club promotes safe and ethical use of our waterways. Other projects include helping to keep our waterways clean and provide instructional skills clinics through the year.
