Small Business Chamber Toastmasters
Looking to improve your speaking and leadership skills? Ace a job interview? Ignite your career? You have come to the right place. Since 1924, more than 4 million people around the world have become more confident speakers and leaders because of their participation in Toastmasters. Membership in Toastmasters in one of the greatest investments you can make in yourself. How Does It Work? A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. A typical meeting lasts 60 minutes. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communicator manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and working in the Competent Leader manual. In our learn-by-doing approach, we don't lecture members about leadership skills; we give them responsibilities and mentoring to help. Then we ask them to lead. If you are interested in honing your communication and leadership skills in a fun, professional and supportive environment, come check out the Small Business Chamber Toastmasters club Tuesdays from 12-1pm.

Savannah Hiking and Climbing
This will be a short paddle from the Lazaretto Creek Boat Landing to the Cockspur Island and back. We will Meetup at the Lazaretto Creek Boat Ramp at 4:00 PM and be in the water by 4:30 PM. The paddle itself is quite short, lasting 45 minutes or so if you're a slow paddler. We will be taking the out going tide to the light house, and the tide will have switched by the time we return (7:30 PM or so). Please remember that you must provide your own kayak for this trip. If you need to rent a kayak, you must contact a separate rental agency on your own as the group does not rent kayaks. Please ensure that you are physically capable of kayaking this trip before coming on it.
Atlanta Area Paddlers
This is one of those trips that everyone loves and you will not soon forget. I try to go every April but a few springs have gone by and it is time to head back for a 3-day kayak and camping trip unlike most you will have the opportunity to experience. I have had guests liken this trip to being in a National Geographic Documentary. For more information and to see previous trip photos got to http://discovery222.com I want to limit the number of folks attending to 10 or less. You should have experience paddling, a PFD is required as well as a spray skirt for sit in kayaks due to the surf and swells that we may encounter on occasion. I have seen folks in boats as small as an LL Remix XP9 and sit-on-top kayaks also work well. Ideally, for carrying your gear a sit in kayak that is 11ft. or longer is best, with room for storage. Do not be intimidated by the idea of surf and swells, we are talking about the ocean and as long as the weather is favorable it is no worse than a lake with a lot of boat activity. I have seen many beginners paddle for their first time at the spot we launch from and we will avoid any heavy surf. The ocean is often very calm but with the changing tides, winds, etc., it can get choppy. The surf is actually a lot of fun to play in after we get unloaded and some of our paddles will include going through the surf. Nonetheless, I have only had one person do it but you can always walk your boat along the shore if the surf does scare you. I have arranged for parking at Ocean Plaza Beach Resort. The charge is $10.00 per day/night per vehicle. That is cheaper than using Tybee Island meters which are $18.00 per day. The parking lot is a short walk to or from our launch point. We unload all our gear at the put in, then take vehicles back, leaving someone with the gear and boats and we walk back from the parking lot. The parking lot is safe, has lighting and security. Everyone attending will pay $21.00 in advance per person to hold their individual spot ($1.00 is for the nonrefundable PayPal processing fee). The $20.00 fee will cover parking for Saturday and Sunday nights. We will leave sometime Monday but no parking fee is required for this day. To make your payment and for more details go here http://discovery222.com, then click ‘Payment”. We will put in on Tybee Island about a 1-mile paddle from where we will land on Little Tybee Island to unload and set up camp. We may encounter some surf as we approach Little Tybee Island, depending on where we want to camp, but the surf here is generally mild. Keep in mind that you will need to pack everything needed for this 2-3 day excursion in your kayak. However, it is only about a one to two mile paddle from our put in site to where we will set up camp. With this in mind you can use an inflatable raft in tow or another sit-on-top kayak, etc., for extra gear. Usually with kayak camping trips you do not have this option, here you do, but do not over do it! Try to stick to the basics for the most part, be comfortable and a few luxury items are fine. It is very important not to overload your boat or to be too top heavy. I will bring gear for home base on the beach for all persons use, a large sun shelter and a table where we will gather for meals, etc. I pull an inflatable raft behind my kayak for those heavier items and that works beautifully. I also put noodles (the kind that kids/people use to float) on anything that could potentially sink, using zip ties. You should be able to fit all needed gear in your boat. You never want to be too top heavy (if your tying dry bags or a lawn chair to the deck of your kayak) or have too much weight over-all. Put heavier gear in your storage areas and lighter gear in dry bags on your deck if needed. Also, keep in mind that regardless of where we set up camp we are only a few miles paddle from Tybee Island Beach and extra food, supplies or heck a hotel if really needed. In the event of an emergency help is relatively close by and we WILL be in cell phone range from Tybee Island Beach and extra food, supplies or heck a hotel if really needed. In the event of an emergency help is relatively close by and we will be in cell phone range.
