Q&A with Ben Kvanli, Founder and Teacher

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

We lead the youngest ever kayaker to run the Grand Canyon. 9-year-old Brett Venable set the record in 1992 by running all of the rapids except Lava in his kayak.

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

Pioneering adventure therapy for wounded war Veterans has shown the therapeutic effects of the water. Seeing these heroes not only get out of the hospital, but get back to living life to the fullest makes all of our efforts worth it.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Joining our club makes paddling less expensive, less work, and more fun than renting or buying your own boat. In addition, you will get personal attention from caring pioneers of paddling, and be proud of ... your own accomplishments in the sport. You will [be] a part of a club [that] fosters community participation from wounded war Veterans, everyone in the family, beginners, [and] Olympians.

Quail Creek Golf Club’s 18-hole course invites golfers to enjoy the countryside charm of its rolling terrain as they swing their way past native tall grasses. A well-oiled short game pays dividends on this course due to the nature of the turtle back greens. The signature seventh hole offers a view of a large canyon that sits adjacent to the Blanco River, and the twelfth hole runs alongside the river itself. The same oblong pond stands in front of the greens at the adjacent ninth and 18th holes, providing a dramatic finish to both nines, as well as an opportunity for golfers to sacrifice their sand wedges to the water in a post-round gesture of respect for the course. The grounds include a driving range, and a Back Porch Bar & Grill where players can enjoy a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.

After rounds, players can drop by the Back Porch Bar & Bistro for a frosty beverage, beer or burger, which can be ordered in advance so it is ready on the turn.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,312 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 70.2
  • Slope rating of 121
  • Four tee options

The paddling aficionados at Austin Canoe & Kayak maintain a stable of masterfully maintained vessels for outfitting all levels of aquatic explorers. Solitary river riders can transport single rental kayaks from the store's waterless location and drop into any body of water they choose, avoiding crowded routes and groups of largemouth bass that blab everyone's best-kept secrets. Adventurous couples can romantically float down Mother Nature's own tunnel of love in a spacious tandem kayak while fairytale marine life sings melodies to set the mood. Single-person boats such as the Wilderness Systems sit-inside Pungo 120 can best the currents of the Brazos River, and a Malibu 2XL from Ocean Kayak can ferry two-person teams seaward on salty jaunts in the Gulf of Mexico.

On sweltering summer days, the San Marcos River becomes a cooling respite for hundreds of tubers thanks to Don's Fish Camp. The shop rents tubes with coolers and sells supplies such as sunscreen and waterproof cameras for tubers to take onto the water. When not floating with a brew in hand, tubers can barbecue and picnic along the banks flush with trees and shrubbery.

The rec area accommodates those who aren’t ready to go home at the end of day by allowing guests to pitch a tent and camp under the stars to the sound of rushing water and largemouth bass that just won't shut up. To give these visitors a scenic place to tube and party, Don's team cleans up the riverbanks daily and requests guests bring no glass or styrofoam on the premises.

The experienced coaches at American Allstar Gymnastics Inc teach children of all ages how to climb and cartwheel during recreational gymnastics, cheer, and tumbling classes. Youngsters teeter atop balance beams, swing from parallel bars, or ride into the sunset on pommel horses during gymnastics sessions, which build both flexibility and strength. A one-hour tumbling course introduces choreographed rolls and floorwork to pupils of every skill level. Alternatively, cheer-tumble classes throw a bucketful of pep into acrobatic routines for beginner to intermediate students. Sessions limit attendance to seven whippersnappers per coach, ensuring staff members have enough time to dispense personalized tips to each child before demonstrating how to earn a perfect 10 at competitions by bicycle-kicking baked goods into the judge's mouth.
