Event Information


Hey all!  Weather permitting, we'll be paddling out to Picnic Point and back on Thursday the 20th.  Meet at the boathouse at 5pm (earlier if you're able!) and we'll pick out our sea kayaks or canoes, paddles, PFDs, etc.  The water temperature is already 66 degrees, but if you think you'll get cold, there are club wetsuits that we can use.  There are day-use lockers that you can rent from the Outdoor UW office as well.  We need to be back before sunset (which is 8:40pm), so we'll be back at the boathouse at 8:30pm at the latest.  Please plan on sticking around to help clean up.

Please bring the following: Proper paddling clothing or swimsuits (NO cotton!), Shoes that stay on when wet, water bottle, towel and change of clothes for afterward

Optional: Snacks, Sunscreen, hat and/or sunglasses with straps, nose plug, goggles

If the weather doesn't cooperate (i.e. blue flag or higher and the lake isn't closed) then we'll stay in the pier area and practice our paddling skills (assuming you have the proper ratings)
