Trip Description:

Come work out the “kinks” with your new boat, camping or paddling gear. This will be a relaxing weekend to do a small lake paddle at a bird sanctuary, some biking, walking or relaxing with others. The goal of the weekend is to provide a safe place to try that new stove, hammock or tent without fear of being on the river and it not working. Got a new paddle float and don’t know how to use it? Someone will show you how. We welcome everyone and every type of boat and paddler. Wondering about what kind of chair to get? Come and meet other club members and check out all their gear. 

Plan: Arrive Friday afternoon and set up camp. Meet and greet around a group campfire. 

Saturday morning, do shuttle or take your own boat and car down to the put in at the campground. Small sandy point put in, ample parking a short ways away. Drop and park. Go as a group down the length of the lake approximately 2 hours one way.

Come back have lunch. Group can relax, bike ride, Golf, go for walk. 

Then if there is enough interest, we will play some water polo, or maybe go for a group bike ride for ice cream (Mostly flat about 2.5 miles), paved. If we play water polo, we’ll take a pop up for shade for onlookers, bring your own chair. 

Sunday morning we can paddle again or relax, group dependent.
