NEWP sponsored event - please visit http://www.wisconsinpaddlers.org/activities/fwhp2014/2014appletonlocks for information. If you are attending, please click on the 'Count me In' blue button on the page.
So, you passed on the Park to Park paddle and didn't get to experience what it is like to be crammed in a boat lock with 150+ other paddlers? Or, do you do like to have the feeling of closeness and sharing a snack with another person within arms reach.. Well, do I have a deal for you. You will get to experience 5, yes.. count them.. five times you will be confined within a lock.. and experience a zen-like setting.
This is a fun family paddle - last year there were all ages who enjoyed a nice fall day on the water. The put in will be at Lutz park, and ending at Sunset Point Park. Total mileage a little bit more than 6 miles. Octoberfest( http://octoberfestonline.org/) will be the main attraction as a post-hydration event. So, strap on your lederhosen and ensure your glockenspiel is tuned up.
As usual, there is a $10 fee for all NEWP paddles. To expedite registration, please complete the ACA membership/waver forms prior to the event - and present this to the NEWP staff. Thanks
