Shirley TharpShirley Tharp has volunteered to take over the cruisemaster position effective March 1, 2011 from our previous cruisemaster, William Gatling. Shirley is a relatively new member of the GCA, but wanted to be more involved. She is from Augusta, so she was anxious to find a way to help as long as it was online so she did not have to drive to meetings.

Shirley recently wrote an article for Jackson Kayaks about her experiences test paddling a 2011 Hero. See Article
