On March 8, 2011, Manuel King, in acknowledgement of Louisville’s growing paddling community, announced the addition of paddling to what had been previously known as the Manuel’s Hike & Bike. The event has been renamed the “Manuel’s Hike, Bike & Paddle! Bravo, Manuel King!
Skipping Fish Boat School made and presented the Manuel with a Greenland paddle on behalf of Louisville’s paddling community. The Manuel will also be initiating the building of a community kayak that will be built by the Manuel and members of the community at Skipping Fish Boat School…I suppose that means the Manuel can add “boatbuilding” to his list of skills and accomplishments!
