More SUP Classes Next Year
JoplinSUP.com held its first classes this year with huge turnouts. Both Kenneth Bogle and Matthew Brogan were very happy with the success and turn out of the classes. However, as the season changes so does the interest in being on the water. So JoplinSUP.com has decided to end classes for the year and will plan to start again next May.

Group Cleans Shoal Creek
Last month JoplinKayak.com cleaned four miles of shoal creek with huge success! With the help of landowners and over 20 volunteers, we were able to pull several truckloads of trash and tires. Here is a short list of just a few things we pulled out. 72 tires, 85 bags of trash, 2 shopping carts, 2-55 gallon drums, sheet metal, and much more.
Huge thanks to everyone who has helped with all the Demo Swaps and River Cleanups this year! Without members like you, we wouldn’t have an awesome group as we have. Thank you to the Mods and Admins of the different pages that fall under Joplin Outdoor Adventures. You all do a wonderful job keeping the drama and spam in check! Without you, our pages wouldn’t be considered so friendly and helpful to others. Let’s continue to help each other as we move forward.
