Things that Bite!!

 

While alligator attacks are actually rare in Texas, still they did happen. According to news reports, earlier this month, May 2024, police officer in Cleveland, Texas was bitten by a 10-foot gator while trying to remove it from a roadway. Just yesterday, May 29, there were reports of a suspicious case where a missing person's body was found in the jaws of an alligator, although right now police is still investigating the case. It is sad. It underlines the risks of possibly dangerous encounter of "Things That Bite" in the field where we paddle and do other outdoor activities we all love. "Things That Bite" is our special presentation topic of the month! Again, the presenter is one of own beloved trip leader Joe Coker.

This time, he will lead us for a quick look at critters that could harm or at least shake us up!  He will emphasize on what, where, when and why, and measures we should take. Joe likes to say, "Greater awareness = Greater Safety".

Welcome to the Houston Canoe Club (HCC).  We are a group of multi-faceted canoers and kayakers who have a shared interest in all types of paddle sports that include, but are not limited to; whitewater, flat water, touring, racing and stand up paddling.  We paddle the bayous, lakes, rivers, streams and Gulf shores of Texas and the United States.  We offer a variety of trips including day trips, weekend trips, overnight camping trips and expedition trips. 

The HCC was established in 1964 when a group of interested canoeists got together and talked of organizing a canoe club. The rest is history. 




We currently have about 130 members in the Houston-Galveston area and beyond.

The club is run by volunteer members.  Our member base consists of people of all ages and includes singles, couples and families. 

Our trips and skill levels range from beginner to experienced, and from day trips of a few hours to week-long expeditions.

Club Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM.

We socialize, discuss where we've paddled, review upcoming trips and have guest speakers present topics of interest to the club.
