multi-sport weekend introduction to paddling - October 6, 2012

If you want to try paddling and are not sure where to start, join us at the marina near the causeway for a paddle on the Great Salt Lake. We will give instruction and paddle for about an hour. Bring water, sun screen, life jacket, boat and paddle. You will need to bring your own boat. Sea kayaks or longer recreation kayaks are ideal, but any kayak will work. If you need to rent a boat, they are available from SidSports, Wasatch Touring and the Outdoor Program at the U of U. Call if weather is questionable. Supper @ 4 pm: See Page 9 of the October Rambler for info of all the weekend's activities. We will culminate Saturday's activities with a group dinner at 3:30 pm. The dinner has been organized and is being prepared by our fabulous social directors - please bring a dessert. A nominal charge of $ 3.00 and is byob. FEE WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE DOOR. We plan to hold the dinner at the Pavilion by the beach. However, it cannot be reserved so if occupied we will use group camp site #1 in the White Rock Bay group campground. We will post a sign if we move to the alternative site. Please RSVP if you plan to attend the dinner (including number attending) to either of the contact persons below. BE AWARE THERE IS AN ENTRANCE FEE TO THE PARK. EACH PARTICIPANT/CAR IS INDEPENDENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ENTRANCE FEE.
