River to Lake Luau June 3

Postby MarkS » Mon May 29, 2017 9:37 pm

On Saturday we will test the theory that a rising tide raises all boats.
Bring whatever you've got -- sea kayaks, paddleboards, canoes, rec boats, or anything else that floats -- to the boat ramps at the Rocky River Reservation at 11 a.m. June 3 for the River to Lake Luau. (Even if you don't have a boat, the 41 degrees North Yak Shack is right there with rentals.) All skill levels are welcome. Beginners and kids are encouraged to attend. If we get a group of skilled sea kayakers they can break off, head to explore Lake Erie.
Afterward anyone who wants can bring something to grill (I'll bring the charcoal.) and a dish to share for a pot luck in the park.

Andy,
boat ramps at the Rocky River Reservation at 11 a.m.


Get off at McKinley go north to Detroit, turn left and go left at the bridge down into Rocky River Reservation. Turn right at bottom of the hill.

Thanks, John.
There'll be no shuttle, Andy.
We launch there, we land there.
Hope you can make it.

Seven paddlers gathered Saturday for a successful River to Lake Luau from the boat ramps of the Rocky River Reservation of the Metroparks. Teressa Nemeth, Gail Petraff, Don Rivera, Mark and Patty Spang, Donna Campanalie and Keelhauler warhorse Andy Gross paddled out toward Lake Erie where they were greeted by waves under 2 feet and temperatures in the 80s. An after-paddle "luau" picnic was good for calorie replacement. See pictures here.
