The countdown begins

With only nine days to go until the adventure begins here is an update on what is happening.

Beach BBQ

On Saturday One Man Many Paths and FIG held a Beach BBQ at Güven’s Restaurant in Çalış to raise awareness of the kayaking event and raise money for FIG.

It was a beautiful relaxing summer afternoon with a cooling sea breeze blowing from the sea. There was entertainment for the children provided by Kate and Sharon from the Çalis Kids Club. The children (and some of the adults) had a fabulous time up to their elbows in paint whilst making a One Man Many Paths batik to present to Sam.
