Jim Sprandel Memorial Paddle
September 6, 2022
Submitted by: L. Decker
On September 6th over 40 club members gathered at Eagle Creek to pay tribute to one of our club leaders who passed away during the pandemic. It was amazing to see so many boats launch for a collective paddle. Joining us on the water were Jim’s two brothers, who made the trip to attend from St Louis.
The paddle was followed by a meal and time to tell stories and memories about Jim. His wife, Peggy Neill shared the plan to establish a Jim Sprandel Memorial Fund for proceeds from the sale of Jims equipment/books and donations. This fund will be used by HCKC for training and development of adaptive paddling capabilities.
May you have fair winds and following seas our friend and mentor
