(Beaver Dam) There is a new group in Beaver Dam dedicated to highlighting recreational water sport opportunities. Jason Loppnow with the Beaver Paddlers says the group promotes kayaking, canoeing or paddling of any sort on the lake or the river. They are responsible for a weekly paddle report posted to their Facebook page that details water temperatures, water levels, the amount of water flowing through the dam, algae concerns and what paddlers can expect on any given weekend. The Beaver Paddlers have a fundraiser Saturday (9/21) evening: they will be screening the 1975 classic film “Jaws.” Loppnow says the “cool part is that [the screen] is going to be facing the water” which means it can be viewed by boat, kayak, raft, tube, etc. “Bring your boats or anything that floats,” he says. There is also plenty of room on dry land to watch the movie and Loppnow notes that the peninsula may make an ideal viewing location. The screening is free though donations will be accepted. Jaws gets underway at 7pm Saturday night at Waterworks Park with concessions available after 5:30pm.
