A little premature but I wanted to let you know of an upcoming kayak festival & expo to be held June 5, 2010, in Kilmarnock VA. Mark your calanders. Kilmarnock is located in rural Lancaster County which is in the northern most penninsula of VA. Central location to southern Maryland, northern VA, Va Beach, and Richmond. The event will be held on Indian Creek which offers direct access to the bay. This is a first annual event to include a morning kayak fishing tournament, then a mid day kayak poker run, and a kayak sailing regatta (hobie enthusiasts). In between those, we will have vendors, exhibits, and demonstrations on various aspects of the kayaking world. Many familiar names and faces will be there. Not all details have been finalized as of today, but we can expect the fishing tournament to have at least two longest fish categories (striper & croaker), and a bonus category for speckled trout. Optional photo entry. The timing of the event is great for keeper striper season and croaker. I have fished this area for a few years now and know that the location is great for the fishing tournament. The poker run and regatta should be a lot of fun with a nice course staked out and prizes. If you are interested, stay tuned. I will post many details as soon as they are finalized in the upcoming weeks.
