May 6: Club May Picnic and Paddle (see May meeting notes below)
May 7: Wooden Boat Show Paddle (wooden boat not required, paddle not associated with show)
Place: Pirates's Cove
Directions: Take Hwy 98S through Daphne/Fairhope, make a south turn onto CR 95, and go on to the end...
More from Steve Delkers:
Just some comments: Last time I attended their wooden boat show it was rather crowded. Therefore, I suggest we all go to the little Park/beach at the very end of 95. It is just past Pirates Cove [P.C.]. I plan to get there very early and maybe eat lunch at P.C. I think everybody requested 2:00 pm for a start time. That's cool with me.
FROM HWY 98: Just some Hwy notes: Hwy 98 makes a 90 degree left turn from heading South to heading East about five miles below Fairhope. Then it continues to run dead East to the State Line. The turn South onto Hwy 95 is 9.0 miles East of the Hwy 98/Hwy 59 intersection.
The Adventure Route: For the adventuous who like to avoid towns, they can take my route: using Co Road 32 to head East From either 98 just south of Fairhope [see sign for their airport at last traffic light]. Hint-- stop for chicken at Annie's inside the Yellow gas station at Marlow just a bit after crossing Fish River ["No diving from the bridge"] although that was the "Big-Boy Paddle Option" a few years ago.
From I-10: Hwy 32 can also be picked up from Hwy 59 about 5.75 miles south of Robertsdale for anyone coming via I-10. I'm pretty sure there is a caution light or maybe even a stop light at that intersection--but not much else other than the ubiquous gas station [Petrol for those who speak the Queen's English.] If 32 turns into a dirt road you have just missed the turn to Hwy 95. If you soon see an interesting private airfield, you're on the right path .
