Eleven adventurous people tried out a new hobby this weekend and had a great time! This was all part of an ACA Beginner Kayak Class sponsored by the Dan River Basin Association, Henry County Parks & Recreation, and Martinsville Leisure Services.

The paddlers, most of whom had never been in a kayak before, tried out various styles of kayaks as instructor Eric Juday taught them basic paddling skills in Martinsville's Beaver Creek Reservoir.
