FULL MOON KAYAK/SUP OUTING – ELK LAKE
August 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We have rented the Day Dock again at Elk Lake, from 6-10pm. We will have a potluck dinner first, followed by paddling while the moon is coming up.
RSVP Yes if you plan to attend. The dock is limited to 30 people. The cutoff date for reservations is 2 weeks prior, July 30. After that date you will receive an invoice for approx $10-$15, depending on how many people sign up. (The total cost of the dock is $300.) You will receive instructions on how to pay online or otherwise.
Please bring a dish to share and your own beverage. Also bring a flashlight or a headlamp so that you can load your kayak in the dark! And some warmer layers in case it gets chilly by nightfall.
You are welcome to arrive earlier in the day if you wish to paddle in the daylight, then join us for dinner and the moonlight paddle.
Bring your usual essentials such as paddle, life jacket, whistle, permit, hat, gloves, etc.
There is no charge for parking at Elk Lake on Tuesdays.
If it is raining or smoky, an alternate date will be chosen.
NOTE: The actual full moon is Thurs Aug 15. But it is better to go a couple of days earlier because the moon comes up earlier and we don’t have to wait so long to see it!
No guests please; Bella members only.
