Flash Paddle: Full Moon in the Delta
Date: Saturday, August 28, 2004
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Place: Put in a Buzbee's Fish Camp, on Highway 225 north of Spanish Fort, under the southeast end of the the bridge over Bay Minette Creek
Contact: Bob Andrews 344-8664, cell: 367-4144
Special equipment: In addition to the usual PFD and drinking water, each boat is required by law to carry a single white light, but please don't turn them on unless Bob tells us to (white light ruins night vision)
Skill level: Beginner, with a slow to moderate pace
Duration: five miles round trip; we expect to be back at the take-out by 9 or 9:30
Comments: We will probably paddle out to the Delta via Yancey Creek and Gamewarden's Cut. Bring some food and/or drink to share as we raft up to enjoy the sunset and full moon rise. You don't have to call Bob to tell him you're coming; he will not cancel unless the weather is bad at the very moment we are standing in the parking lot by the put-in. If Bob is detained by business, Matt Darring will lead the paddle. This paddle will be so easy that even I (Julie) am thinking of joining in, despite the back injury that has kept me out of my boat for several months now. I will definitely be slower than you, no matter how slow you are!
