Meet at Bruno's in Spanish Fort at 5:30 PM. If you know how to get to Byrnes Lake landing, be there no later than 6:00 PM.
We are re-instating the paddles of the early days of the club -paddle and eat. This should be a great paddle. BRING FOOD/DISH to eat and share with others - don't everyone/anyone bring dessert, bring real food.
We will paddle from Byrnes Lake, across the Tensaw and to the northwest corner of Gravine, set up dinner on the sand hill and eat to the sunset in the west and the moon rise in the east. We will paddle back as the moon continues to rise over Byrnes Lake. This is a not-to-miss paddle. There is magic on this paddle. Bring/wear PFD and BRING A LIGHT (we prefer all paddlers wear PFD's when paddling after dark). Bugspray may be an option on the island. Round trip is approx 6 miles, and rated an easy to moderate paddle but for the Tensaw crossing, which is not predictable. If windy or fast current, Tensaw crossing is with effort. We leave no one behind, so come on.
We MUST be notified if you plan to come. With the website inactive for the month of July, any change in plans need to be communicated to you and we need to have a phone number to contact you. Call us and come have a wonderful summer evening.
