Flash Paddle - Mudhole Creek
Date: Saturday, December 4, 2004
Time: 10:30 AM
Place: Cloverleaf Landing
Contact: Brint Adams - cell 251-583-9919
Comments: Due to high water conditions on the Tensaw River, this paddle is recommended for moderate to strong paddlers. For those unfamiliar with Cloverleaf Landing, we will meet at the Bruno's parking lot at Hwy. 31 & Hwy. 225 in Spanish Fort at 10:15 AM. Others may go directly to Cloverleaf where we will put in. The trip will go downriver past Blakely State Park, cross over to the west side of Apalachee River and enter Mudhole Creek. After exploring it, we will return back upriver, stopping for lunch at the pavilion at Blakeley. There is a $3 launch fee at Cloverleaf. The trip will be approximately 7-8 miles.

Bob Andrews Memorial Adventure Event
Date: Saturday, December 11, 2004
Time: 3:00 PM
Contact: Larry McDuff 928-1582
Place: Fairhope Yacht Club
Comments: This is not a race; everybody wins. Pairs of participants will go separately at the same time. One will paddle a boat from Fairhope Yacht Club to Rock Creek and stop at a rope swing. The paddler will walk or run up the creek and trail to a meeting place near the Montrose post office. The other person in the pair of participants rides a bicycle to the same meeting place. Switch off. The paddler becomes the bike rider and rides the bike to the yacht club. The other person walks or runs to the kayak and paddles back to the yacht club. Larry needs responses from anyone wishing to participate. He also needs some helpers on the course. No Potluck dinner at the gazebo afterwards, due to FYC event that evening.
